Nice work all.

Here are pics of the last 4 projects I have compleated 1 holster for a 9mm Makarov, 2 pouch style belt sheaths for assist open knives by Black Legion,And 1 Honeydo pouch for my wifes garden shears. The sheaths have 3" belt loop with a snap so you can put on and remove with out removing your belt.

I made a couple of simple sheaths for some knives. They are simple but really functional for me. I gave the small bucksaw knife to my son. I had a triple thickness of leather to sew through and finally figured out to soak in water a few minutes to make sewing easier. I have about 4 or so more sheaths to make for long knives and one or two for large pocket knives.I am going to try different patterns for some of those. I am learning.

Thanks all, still learning and a long way to go yet.

Loving the style that Ivars makes and would love to progress to that level.

I have some cool Celtic designs to use but need a lot of practice on tooling the designs into some scrap leather

I'm a rookie just trying to make a couple of sheaths for some straight knives for hunting. I'll put a pic on when I finish but they will not be pro grade by any means. Just functional.

Cool projects Jason.

They are looking fantastic Jason and I am extremely impressed with the cross draw sheath!

Comment by Jeremy B. Buchanan on July 3, 2014 at 21:33

Great job on the projects Jason!

The  quiver depends on the leather but around $100-120 once you take into account the leather, dye, screws / d-shackles etc
