    Did you have difficulty making the holes? I have heard that even drilling is tough.

    The Sheath was a huge pain to sew. The texture on the leather pushed my needle all around. Cutting the leather was more like scoring.

    Agreed! I've never had a hide of any kind resist anything so much as ray skin. A drill bit skips all over it, an awl doesn't want to go at all, brute force only ends in anguish. But when done it just looks so good, and yours does. :D

    well worth the effort huh?
