Its a different type of leather that i have Rocky.  It doesn't take tool at all. The leather is more like a suede...  Its think 8-10 oz but its not toolable. 

 

And I can do that for ya Razor.  I'm worried about cutting the stiching though, because last time my welt didn't work... 

 

Any experts have some advice?

I tell you what Watcher, I'm going to put a basic sheath together for a small fixed blade, I'll use that as a tutorial. I'll you tube it in sections. In the meantime, I'll send you some leather that will work for your project. I'll walk you through the construction steps. Stitching is a piece of cake, just time consuming.

 

Razor, can you give me the dimensions of the knife (that you're going to let Watcher work on) or take a pic of it next to a ruler so I have an idea of what size leather to send Watcher.

Ok, that makes sense now, sounds like you have split hide, which wouldn't work for tooling well at all. I'll send you some stuff.

 

LOL! I don't want nothing lil' bro! Just your oath you'll teach someone your skills too one day. Pay it forward.

sure will, but what do ya want for the leather?

 

Oops! I thought this came from Watcher. :P But same goes for anyone. I have tooling hides all over my shop, I can part with some for a knife.

Ive got an idea for some tooling on the sheath watcher! Ronin likes transformers so maby you could put the decepticon symbol on it. that would rock!

Not to steal a project from watcher, but if it's ok with both you and watcher, if you send me that knife, I could use that to do a tutorial on. Watcher could use that for the blade he made for the little lady. That's a perfect size, and I could do a tutorial too on how to transfer pictures to leather. Just an idea to throw out there! It would be a 'pro bono' project too.

Sounds like an outstanding plan Rocky! pm me your address. if its alright with watcher? i still like the transformers logo idea though, my boy would love that. your awesome man, if there is ever anything i could do for you just ask. and don't worry, watcher and i are the type that always  "pay it forward" even when were broke :hugegrin:

Take a pic of it OFG, post it up and I'll give you a quote.

It's the Imperial I have posted over in the "Show us your knives" section.  I'll get another picture. I found it at a garage sale for a couple of bucks and it turns out to be a great blade.  Weird though, the sheath is a hard plastic/vinyle kind of thing.
