My hatchet is so cheap it came without any sheath. And now that I have worked on it and made it sharp, I figured some edge protection was in order. So I made a sheath from gaffa tape.

Here is Axe sheath "Gaffa" MK 1.

4212

Bellow is the YT video that inspired me. But modified that by inserting a hard plastic layer inside that won't get easily cut up by the axe, and used a nylon strap to secure it.

Make that 102 uses for Gaffa tape. Great.

Don't forget some kind of plastic insert to protect the gaffa from being cut open by the axe. I am still using the one in the picture, and no signs of it being worn down :-)

Yeah. I got this wee rubber thing with the axe so I've taped that into the sheath.
