Cross draw knife sheath

#1 Post by dhaverstick » Mon Sep 02, 2019 12:02 pm

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!

Just finished this paddle sheath for ME! I don't like wearing a belt. Mini Moore Trapper.

I like that. Do you have a matching paddle holster for something lightweight like a snub?
Jesus replaces the old covenant and speaks to the believer the moral code of God by His Spirit directly to the heart. He is the eternal, everlasting revelation of God to mankind. In Him is both the knowledge of righteousness and the power to live right.
