Custom Knife Sheath

Working for and with friends is the best. My friend has eclectic tastes and brings me wonderful objects to work with. This project was a sheath for a custom knife. The knife is approx. 11” long, forged by hand.

The sheath is all hand worked using elk rawhide for the case itself, brain tanned deer skin and the lower leg of a deer that still has hair and due claws in place.

A rosette of deer antler is the safety closure. It turned out wonderful, simple and elegant.  Happy client as well!
