    Just finished up the first Gatorhide molded leather sheath. Gatorhide is bovine leather with an alligator imprint that looks and feels like real alligator skin. Molded the sheath with 6oz veg tanned leather covered in Gatorhide. Very pleased how the sheath turned out. It really looks and feels good. When you lay the sheath on real alligator skin it blends in very well.

    Nice job. It made a very attractive sheath. As far as print vs. real......well "to each his own".
