I made this sheath with leather from old work boots.

I sander with sand paper the leather to take of part of the color and clean glue.

Also I used one piece of soft skin (new) for front and to make the leather cord.

That knife is also made by myself with and old saw, is a Big Ass Skinner and has oak handle.

At first cut a round piece of skin with scissors.

Them cut an spiral until the centre.

You have to get a strap of leather

Wet strap on warm water

With your finger fold the strap to get uper part

Use a little piece of leather to knead the strap and you can see how a little skin strap convert in a cord.

Now you have to string up with some weight the cord until get dry.

When is totally dry use some hands cream to get it soft  and protect it from humidity.
