    Hello I was wondering if anyone could answer what material is used to make this type of sheath? Is it suede? and do you have to have a hard liner inside like rawhide? If so how do you make this sheath?

    I have done standard veg tan leather sheaths but not like this. I have someone who wants one identical to this picture so it replicates a Native American style sheath.

    Yes that looks to be suede. Most suppliers will call it a rough out split. Available in a wide variety of colors. It's soft so if you were to make a sheath out of it you would want to use some kind of liner.
