    Hey all!

    I finally decided it was time and made my first sheath this weekend...

    It was definitely a learning experience and quite frankly, it is a bit of dud but that said, I am happy I did it! It may not be the prettiest, but I guarantee that sucker will do its job and not come apart. The next one will be much nicer now that I have already had to wrestle with and fix mistakes that I won't do twice...

    Anyways, check it out! As always, all critiques are welcome. I love to learn!

    Nice one for your first attempt and they only get better from this point on. beware the left hand sheath, they have a habit of sneaking up on you.

    forgot to mention it but I like to have a drain hole in the tip of the sheath. basically leave a small portion of the welt out so that water can drain and the sheath sort of breaths.

    Looks good. Certainly not a dud. You nailed the colour match.

    Very nice for a first try. Nothing wrong with it.

    I always leave/make this drain hole, but in most cases it is needed mainly for blowing dirt out of sheath... ))
