    Here is a custom bushcraft style sheath that I made for my Fiddleback forge Camp Knife:

    I've been wearing this sheath off and on for the last 9 days and really like the way it carries.

    Here are some pictures of the Unfinished sheath, taken right after the leather dried from Wet forming:

    Specs:

    8-10oz Brown Saddle Skirting from Wickett & Craig. Double stitched by hand with Artificial Sinew. Standard belt loop, tie down loop, Shackle and Dangler loop, Nickle hardware. Custom wet formed to my Camp knife. All edges blackened and the while sheath is sealed with 2 generous coats of Mo ntana Pitch Blend Leather dressing.

    These next 2 sheaths were custom fitted to the customers knives. He ordered both and asked that they match as closely as possible. Both knives are hand forged customers in custom leather. The Larger knife is a Custom 10" cleaver, the smaller knife is a 5" bushcrafter.

    The Cleavers sheath has a Tie down loop and 2 extra D-rings for Baldric carry. They are both made from 8-10oz Saddle Skirting. That's my standard leather.

    Sorry a little late on the pics Heber :). I'll be contacting you for couple more sheaths, as I have a Ulysses inbound, and a bush operator that needs tough little pair of pants. Here's a group shot of my current Fletcher collection.

    Now here's two Heber sheaths. One for my orange handled BOXL, and the other for my Tango.

    Here you can see the quality in Hebers stitching.

    Lol thank you Dylan, I enjoy them. The blood and guts is my go to knife, and I wear it anytime I'm riding my Harley. I think the ergonomics make it a great self defense blade. I carry it weak side with my p238 on my strong side off duty. The BOXL will see some action once I open my cabin this spring, and the Ulysses will get to do some chopping. The delta has skinned a deer. If you ever get the urge to make a flashy blood and guts let me know, I'll sport 2 lol.
