It's a lot of fun making knives. I read a bunch of instructables on knife making that were excellent and decided to make my own. The knife I made was from a super thick piece of steel that I had laying around. It has a mahogany handle and brass pins. Pretty simple. But this instructable is not about the knife. Here you'll see how I made a tooled sheath for it.
Step 1: Tools and material
I used quite a few tools made for leather working, but you can get away with a lot less.
-leather stamping or carving tools
-non-metal mallet (never use a steel hammer on your tools)
-leather edger or beveler
-Vegetable tanned leather
-1 heavy duty snap
-various leather dyes and/or paints
