Spoon knife or scorp leather sheaths another version
As seen on the web
Sometimes we see something that makes us say; ’Why did I not think of this’ !
These sheaths are for spoon knifes with half circle or more in curve, or for your scorps, but can be used for many other tools also.
I love the idea because it’s so simple and easy to make.
The last blog in tis series was me showing the old spoon knife with it’s new handle.
Now it’s time to make it a sheath.
The idea is simple a fold around the blade type sheath.
So first I made a template out of paper just folding the paper around it and with a pen drawing the cut lines.
The cut the paper out and test this on the tool and finally cut it out in a piece of leather.
You will understand more later.
Then wrap around the blade and mark where you want the button.
I would put it a wee closer to the center next time…
Then mount the screw back button.
Make a hole in the other side a wee smaller than the button.
Finally make a small cut like this for opening.
Place your tool on top.
Fold top flap down.
Fold screwback button flap over.
Finally close it up.
That’s really clever, I admire who ever thought this out.
Now the knife will stay sharp when brought outside the workshop.
Hope it can inspire to give protection to your tools, most of all to stay sharp.
