I finished this knife sheath today for my good friend, Joe Hollingshad, to match the shooting bag I made for him this past spring. When I gave him the bag he gave me his knife and asked me to make a sheath for it as well. That was in April and I finally got it done!
I like making a cross draw sheath for long knives and this one will fit a 3" belt. The core of the sheath is vegetable tanned cowhide. The tan leather is elk hide and the reddish-brown leather is caiman. The brown trim is deer hide. I carved the strap fastener out of deer antler and sewed everything up by hand with artificial sinew. I'm just glad to get Joe's knife back to him before hunting season started!
