Two more Knife sheaths

Jim Moore liked the first sheath that I made for his trade knife well enough, to send me two more of his trade knives to make sheaths for. 


The sheaths are made using 4-5oz veg tanned leather, sewn with a heavy waxed linen thread.
 They both are dyed a dark brow and hand rubbed with oil & bee's wax. The both have a 2" belt loop attached to the back as requested by Jim.

Jim wasn't able to post his comment so he sent me an E-mail with his comment for me to post:
"Your a true craftsman at your trade of leather working. The workmanship is excellent.. You made what I asked for. The sheaths will hold up and last for many years to come." Thank You,
Jim Moore
