    Thanks guys. I learnt loads from doing this sheath.

    I still have a long way to go too.

    Like I said originally, the lions share of the praise should go to a fella called Ian Atkinson who has a YouTube channel called "Satans barber" and also to our very own Biker Bri for some truly magnificent advice.

    I guess I had better put the handles on a few more blades and get busy with more sheaths.

    Ade.

    Fantastic work mate. Never seen anyone build up the welt like that before, but it's a good idea.

    Cheers buddy, kind of you to say so. With regard to the welt, all the videos and articles that I have watched/read showed it done this way.

    One shaped welt that runs the full length of the sheath, then another piece glued either side of the main welt to account for the thickness of the handle. These additional pieces are then shaved down with a scary looking razor tool called a safety beveller (aka a skiver).

    It seems to have worked out pretty well.

    My favourite bit I have to say is the edge slicking, it's amazing to see a rough arse piece of leather turn into a smooth mirror finish.

    Ade
