Retrofit Sheath for homemade Knife
« on: September 11, 2012, 09:56:57 AM »
I made this a little while ago. Its a fish knife sheath that I've had laying around forever getting moldy. One of those items my girlfriend has always wondered why I was putting in another moving box haha. It was about 4 inches longer, I cut it down and soaked it formed it around the knife then pressed an antique button into the top for some decoration, punched some holes, backed up some stitches, waxed some edges...Done! looks alright!
