Sheath for my elk-antler handled favourite carving knife

So, I was being carried away a bit with leather work;-), and while I was at it, I´d thought I´d make my favourite knife a decent home. Made it somewhat Scandi style, but with the seam on the outside, for I wanted a traditional belt loop, not a dangler type. Sorry, no photos in progress, but it was fun to make. If you have a knife that fits in the concept, that´s definitely a cinch to make! It took me aboutsome 45 minutes to make the sheath and fit it over the knife wet, 24 h to dry, and that´s it. It´s small, light and handy. The only requirement is that you have a knife with a blade shallower than the handle.


  1. Looks good. I assume this is one that is held under the belt.

  2. No, the belt loop is at the back side, the seam on the front.

  3. Thanks a lot, gentlemen, I dwell on your kind words!


Now go on, discuss and rant and push my ego;-). As long as it´s a respectful message, every comment is welcome!
