Default 2019 show off your leather

Been intrigued with leather work recently and couldn’t find an up to date thread so I am making one. Getting into it myself and would like to see some projects y’all have done.

This is my first ever project, knife sheath made out of Herman oak 8-9 ounce for my younger brothers skinning knife. Name:  IMG_1245.jpg

Next up I am attempting a pancake sheath for a trapper style knife with some tooling.

Maybe if it was for people who pay to advertise on here our leather work it wouldn't get chopped....

I love nice leather work. I contacted a guy on here about making me a nice heavy 2” wide dog collar. He sent me a txt then never heard from him again. If anyone is interested in making it for me, let me know.

The first couple "show off your leather" threads were just that... people showing them off, nothing more. They went on to thousands of replies and had a LOT of useful info in them along with ideas for other leatherworkers. Yes, there were some people that became sponsors during that time and those sponsors would start a new thread advertising their items and kept the original thread just that, to "show it off". I know it had gotten where people that weren't sponsors were advertising to sell or saying "PM me for inquiries" and IMO, that's not right. I paid to be a sponsor at one time to sell my stuff, those looking to sell their items should be a sponsor, that's what the sponsorship is for. But there's nothing wrong with showing off your talent, sponsor or not, as long as it's kept as showing off your talent and not advertising in any way to sell the items. Not much different than a DIY thread or a thread that shows off what you made or built, deer stand, feeder, etc...

I read through the last threads and they did all have so much great info and great pieces. Hopefully this thread will stay as a place to show off everyone’s work and won’t get chopped. I really like seeing all the great projects that tbhers come up with.

Also after seeing all the other threads, tubby you are a leather working fool!! You have mad skills with leather. Keep up the good work.

I appreciate it although I haven't done much leatherwork in about 4 years. I'm slowly getting back into it.

Here’s a picture I was able to capture with a borrowed high end camera, definitely have some tweaks I want to do for the shape of this sheath on the next one.
Who else has pictures of something they have made recently?

Sorry for the bad picture but I just made this one for a Bowie knife. It has a belt loop sewn onto the back of the sheath.

Looks good!

Do you have a welt inside the sheath to protect the leather stitching from the blade?

That’s the one thing I did not do, if or when it gets cut I will have to disassemble and put a welt inside.

First attempt at a pancake knife scabbard, definitely some things I can improve on but overall I am happy with the final product. One thing I’ve learned so far is to be patient and don’t rush the process.

Looks good.
Keep your finger nails trimmed also, as they will leave marks on wet leather.

Have a question for the leather workers, looking to do a laced knife sheath instead of a stitched one the next go around. What kind of lace should I buy? There’s lots of different ones and want to be sure I get a good durable one that will last.

I don't do much lacing but I used kangaroo the last time I laced anything.

Fixed blade sheath I finished up today, love the way my Barry king basket stamp looks. Edges are very sharp and the quality is impeccable.

Matching set for two handmade C.R. Marquis knives. Love the blades and now they have proper sheaths to go with them.
