Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Now what, this thing is larger than I imagined and I probably have a year or two worth of sheaths at my work rate. About 3.5'x7+' and listed as 26 sq ft. It would cover my whole work bench and way too big for my cramped quarters. My plan is to layout on the back porch with scrap plywood beneath, cut off the irregular belly areas and use what belly I can as welts and set aside the rest for cutting tests for the really bad parts. Then just cut the rest up into sizes that I can work with. Am I on the right track? Any other prep advice? It looks real good by the way, 8-10 oz Russet Skirting (discount/branded). Can't wait to try tooling/carving. A morose standing bear design is next for a pretty long bladed knife.
