also feel free to comment and ask questions!
Step 1: Make a Pattern
be sure your knife will slide out of the sheath. this knife in particular would never be able to be inserted if i sewed it with the same outline. (not to point out the obvious...sorry)
Step 2: Cut Pattern and Leather
i then cut the pattern again for the front. i used a thinner leather for this part ( i had some scrap around)
i also used some scrap to put a border of leather around to prevent my knife from cutting the thread. ( i also needed this to make the thick blade fit)
Step 4: Molle Straps
then finish one end of the strap to your liking.
Step 5: Burnish and Dye
i have an instructable for the tool i used.
then if your going to dye your leather be sure to do this now before construction
Step 6: Add Snaps
i get my tools, hardware and snaps from tandy leather. the first picture shows whats needed for this phase. they are line 24 snaps i believe.
Step 7: Glue! It's Coming Together!
glue about 1/4" all the way around your sheath where you will be sewing
hopefully the pictures will speak for themselves in this step.
Step 8: Chisel the Boarder
Step 9: Clean Up Dye and Burnish.
i also punched a hole at the tip of the blade so i could tie it to my leg in the bush.
Step 11: Belt Loop
Step 12: Cut Off the Excess
burnish and dye.
Step 13: Paracord or Leather Lace to Finish
finish with a clear sheen.
hope everything worked out! you will have to come up with your own measurements as im sure your knives will vary. if you get stuck i can try help you through it.
thanks for looking!
