« on: August 16, 2014, 04:44:39 PM »
hey guys and gals, hope ya'll are doing good
so i had been getting some encouragement (lol) that my leather working skills needed refinement. so i took the week off to do just that. here is the sheath with the prototype steak knife i made, both finished.
specs are on knife
8 inches long
1 inch or so tall
about 3 1/2 inch cutting edge
cocobolo diamond wood handle scales
copper pins and tube

cow hide leather, hand stitched and hand sewn by me

feedback appreciated

The knife and sheath really turned out looking great!  I like the scale material very much, and your leatherwork is great!!
