Thread: Made another sheath

    Made another sheath


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I haven't posted much here lately.......my 16 month old son has kept me busy!!
    I did finally get around to making a sheath for the custom Peacemaker knife Bryan Breeden made for me over a year ago.

    I made up a batch of vinegaroon to darken the leather.
    There are a few things I could have done differently, but I think it will be a good usable sheath!





    Raw leather


    After a dip in black tea (gives the leather more tannins for the vinegaroon to react with)


    After the vinegaroon bath

    What do you need to treat the leather with after the vinegaroon soak?
    TIA!

    Thanks everyone!
    From what I have read, (this is the first time I tried it) I rinsed it in a baking soda and water mixture for several minutes then with clean water.
    I just used some saddle treatment stuff that is mostly beeswax and mink oil over the whole thing.

    Very nice work. I'm just getting started in sheathmaking ( bought my first supplies/tools yesterday.) I am reading tutorials on the internet. Pics and posts like yours are an inspiration
