    Any suggestions? Repair of sheath.

    Hi

    I noticed today that the stitching has come undone on the sheath for my trusty Kershaw 1050 folding field, lucky I noticed it before it went missing!

    Have you any suggestions for repairing it because it looks like a bugger to sew back together

    I can do a re-stitch - dead easy job - seeing as it's what I do fulltime (sew leather)

    You can do it yourself with a speedy stitcher tool that you can get on eBay for about a tenner. Worth every penny and handy for other repairs other future.

    ...or NOT

    IF I'd been online earlier I would have offered one for free to the OP

    I rate them as a total gimmick as they don't do as good a job as hand sewing.

    A better job to the speedy stitcher can be achieved with a roll of dental floss & a blunt needle: and at a MUCH lower cost!
