A leather sheath for my new knife.
You made the sheath?
Nice sheath, but I'm more interested in the knife! Where did you get it, and how much did it cost (if you don't mind sharing), because I really dig the inlay work in the handle.
Picked up the knife at the Gallup, NM flea market for $40, a steal because they can go for up to $150.
Yup, my first one though it did take three prototypes to work out the mistakes. Used some old cheap leather I already had for the prototypes.
Nice piece of work. Where did you get the medallion. And yeah the knife is cool as hell.
The rosette (concho) is Nickle Silver and they're available online but I bought mine here at a local jewelry supply store called Thunderbird Supply Co. As for the leather it's veggie tanned from Tandy though I would prefer a natural brain tanned leather.
Tandy also has it's share of rosettes (conchos), etc. but I like the local stores, I know exactly what metals I'm buying.
Seems the pictures go away when I log out of Google Photos so I'm trying something else.
