A Little Leather Work
« on: May 31, 2012, 06:16:27 PM »
I did a little leather work the past week for a few items. I had a few Bark River Knives that I use now and again, but I'm not really a big fan of the sheaths that come with the knife, so I made a few for them that are a little more user friendly. I also made my first axe mask for a Council Tool Boy's Axe that I will put to use this winter. I have to give credit to the Wood Trekker for his great tutorial on making an axe mask.  It helped quite a bit as I referenced it several times during the process.

The Axe Mask










Here are the sheaths that I made

Good job all around, BB!  I really like the mask.  The sheaths are a gi-normous improvement over the factory sheaths.  I have one Barkie and the sheath is functional - that's it.  Keep up the good work.
Is there such a thing as too many knives?

Thanks.  I'm not sure how some people do this sort of thing for a living. I would starve to death as long as it takes me to complete my leather projects.

Thanks. I've seen some of your work and it's pretty impressive. Yeah, Bark River makes some nice knives, but it's a shame that you have to purchase or make another sheath that is actually usable.

I'd like to ad my "great work" to the others'.  I really like those knives, especially that second one. 

Good job all around!

Now those are nice. Definitely  puts the sheath  that comes with a Barkie to shame.  Love the  knife hate the sheath LOL
