Default Rattlesnake knife sheath

Hey guys. Our very own WildThings blessed me with this rattlesnake (dead and skinned thankfully!!!) Thanks Bro!

This was my first inlay attempt and with a few details you may not notice, I’m pretty excited about designing some more of these down the road!

Well done. I think you have the sheath making down pat!!

A smaller skin would show the pattern much better. Just an FYI when discussing business with your skin supplier

I have yet to find a piece of your work that shows where you got "lazy".
Your attention to detail is outstanding.

As always, I love your work.

Yes, there's a piece of leather in the same shape that "flushes" it as well as deerskin I use as liner backing that's super solid!

The first step would be for me to obtain a knife actually worthy of such a sheath...

Got a Randall 25-5 coming in just 3.5 years.
