Time to make the sheath. I started with 6 Oz. leather for the face.

in order not to trap the finger guard (and the knife) in the sheath. I had to build up the area behind the guard. I used foam and tape.

I soaked the leather front and back.

then started massaging the leather over the knife.

It's kind of like working with a piece of balogna. The white thing a bone folder/creaser

When finished. I set it in the sun to dry.

When it dried and while I still had it on the form. I punched the lacing holes.

Then I cut it out and used it as a template to make the back of the sheath. For this I used 8 Oz. leather

To keep the leather from cracking during the bend, I got it wet.

Then I glued and sewed the belt loop in place.

I then added a deer head stamp to the face.
