Shot Bag # 80


Remake of Older Sheath

I reworked the sheath I made for my knife a few years back to fit this type of carriage. I removed the front of the old carriage along with the sheath and fitted it to the heart as seen in the second photo.

I wore it at my last event and found it carried very comfortable on the belt.
