New Knife Sheath

 When I first received my knife from Ben Hoffman, of Hoffman Reproductions. I had an idea of the type of sheath that I wanted to make for it but, for some reason I ended up making a simple belt sheath. So a few moths back I received my news letter from the CLA called The Broadside, it had a article on daggers, dirks and few knives alone with there sheaths. I like the style of sheath that was shown with a knife on the style of mine. So I sat down yesterday and put together this.
