hey, need some ideas on where to purchase leather for sheath making.
thanks in advance!!!!!
 
Siegal of California is one.
For sheathwork, get vegetable tanned leather. It's less corrosive than chromium tanned. It molds better too.
I use 8-9 OZ leather, and sometimes heavier.

Tandy Leather?
Not sure - I just go to the leather district in NYC, walk into a shop and buy what I like.
 
I buy my leather from Siegel too. Just ordered a couple of veg tanned double shoulders which should last me a good year or so! :D They have great prices and free shipping on orders over $75. The leather I just got was, I think, about $4.20 per foot, 7-8 oz. It's the same stuff I got last time and has a beautiful finish; I almost didn't want to cut it. :)

For a price comparison, the local Leather Factory has similar sides at $8.00 per foot! About all I buy there is tools and dye.

I use
WICKETT & CRAIG OF AMERICA Leather 1-800-826-6379
I just got two more double sides 1 black and 1 tan in veggie taned bridal leather.
$5.65 SF 10-12 OZ opx 24 sf in each :)
 
siegal of california has a leather called horse butts that my freinds and I have used it and it is very good and tuff also cheap in price get the stiffer one though it works better
 
Tandy Leather or The Leather Factory (same company) has imported veg. tanned on sale right now. I have used these before and most of it is good. There may be some flaws but with something as small as a sheath you can work around them.
