Spoon knife leather sheaths
I know it’s not made of wood but for wood – lol.

Since I care for my tools and the spoon knifes when useful are razor sharp, I thought it would be wise to make them some sheaths, to replace the rubber once I made from bicycle tire tube (they did not stand the sharp edge and were not sexy at all – lol). After browsing the web a little, I found a type I liked and the rest was as they say at Nike: ‘just do it’ or Sinatra:

This post is from the blog:

1. The knifes in their sheaths.
2. Cutting the leather.
3. Punching.
4. Grease and oil.
5. The knifes.
6. On the go.

Here my sketch for the project

Hope this little blog can inspire others; to keep their tools safe and sharp.
