I've not really made an estimate on that. I expect it's probably about the same.

Have to say that the current sheaths that I do make the first one with stamping look a little bad.

The helpfulness going on in the group is just fantastic!  Alexander the sheaths are looking great.  Are you finding it any easier or even less time involved to do the stamping than sewing in the panels like you were before?

Sheath = finished:

Just needs sharpening and my name on it now.

Thanks Stefan, I'll be doing the final work on it this evening. The loop has been glued and everything is dry. So it's contact cement and stiching on the couch for me this evening.

Tom,

Here is a tutorial I put together a while back. Hope it helps

Stefan,

Yes, I epoxy them and then peen them quickly. It's probably not the best way to do it but that's how I started out doing my knives in case I over peen them and the pins get loose. How do you do them?

I've gotten started on the sheath for the knife. A first time stamping leather in a pattern for me. Although I see LOTS of room for improvement...I'm quite happy with this for a first try:

Tom, did I understand you correctly, do you use epoxy on your bolster pins?
