I purchased filet knife blades and made my own scales from some off cuts of mesquite. I shaped them with the belt sander, spoke shave and rasps and finished with shellac and wax.

Thank you for the comments. Joe, I used Janz supply and yes, they had the sheaths available to order along with the blades. My kids and I shaped them after wetting them and then soaked them with neatsfoot oil and sealed with a 50/50 mix of paraffin and mineral oil to make them waterproof.
