Simple Knife Sheath
« on: 2014-05-20, 15:47:41 »
Here's a simple knife sheath I did up.  4 oz leather, dyed dark brown.  The design is based on some of the examples in Knives and Scabbards:

If anyone needs something similar for a dagger or knife please let me know.  I will make similar in exchange for a sum of coin.  The next project will be a historically accurate leather purse with the proper linen lining.

This! ;D Though I suppose in my case it would be two mail mufflers up.

Awesome stuff as always Sir Ian! I can only hope to be as good if I get a camera for my day of birth ;)

And that is something I'll keep in mind.

I'm also waiting to see if the sheath has auto-focus with face detection, and low-light capability. :)

Face detection is for entry-level sheaths and has no use in high end cutlery ;)

What about fingerprint/voice analysis to determine owner?  By the way, I like it!  I have a Windlass sword-hilted dagger, could you do one up for that?  I've got the coin; something simple in either black or blue would do.  Let me know; its low end cutlery so I'll go with the face detection option if you please.  ;)
