New Sheath

This morning I finished up a new knife sheath for the Capt.
I made up the sheath out of 5oz. veg. tanned leather, dyed it to match his belt pouch. I made the sheath a little longer then the previous one because I wanted to form the leather around the handle so to keep it secured in the sheath also to better protect the nice wood handle. As requested I add a leather tie so it can be tied to the belt.
The Capt. knife was made by Ben Hoffman of Hoffman Reproductions. If you would like to see what Ben has to offer you can send him a e-mail to  hoffmanreproductions@yahoo.com
