    Don't worry about the errant hole until you have stitched the sheath. Then wet that area and massage the hole with your fingers. It will get a lot smaller and less noticeable and maybe almost disappear. It will even continue to close up more with time and use.

    Yup, don't fret too much. I've used a groover to make a decorative line to swallow up the errant hole, but it's not really necessary. As Paul said, the hole will mostly go away with a little massaging. :)
