    Four handmade big leather sheaths, from 5 mm buffalo leather. The knives are my friend work, with other two artist contribution, scrimshaw and carving.

    Hard work to burnish the edge, all handmade, including the sewing.

    The sheaths length are about 38 cm

    Your sheath work is wonderful. Can you make custom sheaths if someone sends you their knife?

    I make sheaths just for my knives, with one exception, my friend Galambfalvi Zoltán(Ironzol).I make sometimes sheaths for his knives to. I make more works knives, his are more expensive, mores finer executed knives. Until now i not have time to make more. I have in my plains, after retirement from service(CSI), to compleet my shop with everything i need to improve this activity more seriously :) My intention is to make more knives also, in time will make sheaths just for my knives and nor orders (knives or sheaths). Will see in time, now is just dreams, plains, etc.

    Thanks for your all kind words, i,m honored.

    Nice edges.
    And the eye ending up just above the leather, looks almost like by design... :)
    Jokes aside, I really like that
