I then just hold the x in place and flip it over so that the x is on the table under the sheath. I then take a harness needle and put it through the holes over where the x is and tap it lightly so that it makes an impression in the back side of the x. Once I have marked all of the holes on the x, I make the holes go all of the way through the x with my awl, then I flip it over and make the groove run through the holes.

    I hope that makes sense. If it makes no sense to you, send me a pm and I will give you my cell number.

    Makes great sense CB! Thanks for clearing my head up. That might come in handy in several other circumstances too!

    Same here!!! Thanks for the Tutorial! It'll help out alot, as I need to still make a sheath fro my Damascus knife from the piece I got from Del at last Oct's Grind In.

    Now I just need to find about a square foot of leather to make it!
    Any ideas, anyone? There are a lot of places that are reluctant to cut a hide.

    This is definately a great tutorial. Wonderful job.

    You make it look so easy buuutttttttt when you do it there are always issues that arrise.
    If your fairly good with your hands the issues are all workable. There is certainly nothing better than being able to say I made this.

    There is a thread out there called artificial sinew that is great for sewing leather, or just about anything. It is pretty cheap $4 to $7 for a bunch of it.

    But if you want something to outlast your leather use the real stuff, sinew!!!

    You can patch a sole of a moccasin with this and when he leather patch is gone the sinew will still be there.



    These are leather covered with rawhide.
