Large Knife & Sheath

 This is a large style trade knife, so I made the leather sheath a little stiffer by adding a thicker welt and also making it a little wider to prevent it from bending when the knife is removed from the sheath.It is made to wear on the left side under the belt or sash, I added a leather belt loop to keep it in place when wearing it under the belt, a tie can be added to tie it in place when wearing a sash.
