I have seen a good thread on hand made Knife Sheaths and thought I might share a quick guide of my own.
Please take into account I am a raw beginer at the leatherwork game and was lucky to have the expert guidance of Ted Mitchell helping me along.
After Cutting the shape the belt loop is folded and stictched.
I was lucky in that Ted had a jumping Stag stamp to stamp an imprint on the front of the sheath.
After that a gusset is glued to prevent the blade cutting the stitching. The Stitch pattern is marked and the wholes cut.
We used a bench drill to old the Awl and press through the leather nice and straight.
The sheath is then double stiched and the tag ends are burnt down
Finally a check is made to ensure the knife fits.
A few Photos of the process.
