This is a knife handle I made to replace the broken one and the one an only sheath I ever made with Mads’ help on the stitching. the wood is rubber tree wood and it is finiished with Shellawax.
I made a wood form of the knife for inside the sheath and mating one for outside. Then I soaked the leather to get it thoroughly wet and clamped the forms on the wet leather to make the sheath shape. I drilled small holes for the stitching and that made it very easy. I used Kevlar fishing line for thread.
