Sheath for a Becker BK2
Picked up a BK2 on the exchange, It came stripped, mirror polished, then what looks like a mustard patina done. It also came with micarda scales, the edge is convexed and is razor sharp. I'm thrilled with it so far but thinking of a different set of scales. It came with the stock sheath which is not bad, but I really enjoy sheath making, I have been making sheaths for a short time now and I really enjoy it. Im thinking of upgrading my status to maker. I try to make my stuff with fit and function in mind, I don't really do much embellishment other than some line work and texture. I like clean lines and simplicity. This one I made from 8/9oz Leather, dyed with Fiebings med brown, waterproofed and conditioned with Montana Pitch Blend Dressing and Hand stitched with artificial sinew. The retention strap snap is a gunmetal color. The Dressing darkens the color a bit, but it give a nice rich glow when polished up. The blade fits like a glove and without the strap snapped I can hold it upside down and shake it pretty good and it does not move at all. Hope you all like it, and thanks for looking.
