I might remake this one as it's a bit tight. Still learning these pocket knife sheaths. But brown deer skin lining, inlay on the front and a fold over belt loop.

Always learning! Hope everyone is happily making leather stuff and fixing up knives.

thanks Doc. I picked that knife up at an auction pretty sure new in box. Lid of the box was missing but the knife was in the bottom.part in original plastic bag and with directions. I do like it's new clothes now though 😌. I think based on tang stamp it's from the 1970's?

I will admit it's not my style of knife though so I may sell it off.

Liking your work. ::tu:: If i can give you some advise for the future, if you ever make a knife pouch with a fold over flap and a press stud, make sure you cover the press stud on the inside of the pouch with some thin leather otherwise it will scratch up your knife. I am going to post a knife pouch to show you what i mean, on the press stud on the pouch, not the flap, the back of it is inside the pouch, and if not covered will scratch up your knife. :)

@cudgee I couldn't agree more. It's one reason I like the rolled leather liners you can put the snap and post in place then do the liner and it covers it up. Keeping your knife protected.

Nice looking sheath there what kind of leather did you use?

Lol. I bet you are plenty talented. It's amazing what we can learn to do! You could make that sheath no problem!

Well the fit I was not happy with so I made some adjustments. And made a new one. I'm sure a knife will come along I can fit in the other.
