Carving tool sheath
so simple it takes only one picture.
This is a one picture blog, that’s really all it takes.
I have been doing a lot of thinking on how to make sheaths for my carving tools, made different versions and all of them take time to make and none of them works with all shapes.
The other day working with my tools I got this simple idea.
Yes it’s not a joke.
Just find some soft leather, cut a triangle shape that ends in a string shape.
Wrap the tool and let the end lock it self into the leather.
Really this is all you need and will work on all kinds of tools, knifes, gouges, chisels and so on.
It takes no time to open and no time to wrap up.
You can see a unwrapped leather in the middle, where I made a fold for a chisel before wrapping it.
Hope it can inspire, or at least keep tools sharp.
The best of my thoughts,
