Making Leather Knife Sheaths
Volume 2

From basic leatherworking techniques to the professional-level tips you need to make your project its best, this how-to book will walk you through the steps to produce two top-quality welted sheath designs: a welted sheath with attached belt loop, and one with belt clip and protective strap. Each part of the process, from making the first sketch to completing the final leather treatment, is explained in detail, with extensive step-by-step photographs and templates. A general introduction to sheath making, basic information about tools, and a glossary of technical terms are also included. This book gives you the know-how to make these two sheaths, and also serves as a manual for developing others of your own design.
