    Hello All,

    Thought I’d share some sheaths I just finished up. The Black was for a rodent 3 Swamp Rat And Knife / sheath gifted to my best friend.
    The burgundy is for a Busse Park Ranger.

    Thanks ! Those are my first two and boy I learned a lot just from them lol. Your sheaths and work is the gold standard in my book. I’m just shooting for nice edc users for now.
    Those are both Wickett & Craig bridle leather. The burgundy sheath was like 12oz !!! Made it harder to work with but better in some ways ???

    I went back and looked at that red one and wow! Yep that is one thick chunk of leather! :eek: It does seem to work well with that design though. I've worked with leather that heavy before and it can be a bear to mold and form around a knife. I settled on 8/9 as my all around weight, it molds easy enough and is heavy enough for large sheaths.
    Thank you for the kind words, I really appreciate it. :D

    Thanks for the kind words @duramax. Here's our Duramax with the Allison. 2005 and 235,000 miles. Been a great truck. Got a 2017 F250 Super Duty too so the Chevy mostly sees light duty now, hauling the dogs to the ranch, running around town etc. Those mountains in the background are the ranch, looks like we're getting some showers up top. sheaths drying on the bricks after tooling.
