Throwing knife & Axe

 I finally found a small throwing knife to go along with my small H&B hawk.  I cleaned up the leather handle and checked the handle, dyed it and treated it with neat‘s foot oil. I made up a sheath for the knife and decided to make up a rig that carries both for the trade gun matches.

It can be added to one’s belt by slipping it over the belt or remove it the same way with out removing your belt. It will also carry over one’s shot bag .

Sheaths for the Late 1800

 I was asked by a customer to make up sheaths for a plain old butcher knife and another for a old well used belt axe. This is what I came up with. The axe sheath is made to wear on a belt also.

A Gift for a Grandson

 I was asked by Simeon England a well known ax & knife maker to make up a sheath for a very special knife that he was commissioned to make by artist David Wright for his grandson’s birthday. I was honored to take on such a task. This is the sheath that I came up with.
