Pancake Sheath

Might call this a generic pancake sheath, from bolster down can be drawn in to fit your knife

was going to have a drawing file and pdf but that will have to wait until I figure out how to get them here

Wood Sheaths

This question comes up on occasion about making sheaths out of wood. I do not have any step by step photos but essentially
1) Two slabs of wood remove enough wood the blade is a snug fit and glue together.
2) two slabs of wood with a layer or three of spacer material shaped to the knife profile and all glued together.

Belt loop attachments can be done in any variety of ways, let your imagination run wild.

Block of hardwood shaped to be the belt loop

Sheath has a recess carved for the leather and a leather loop attached to the back like a conventional leather sheath. Forming and sewing wrap around portion done while wet so it shrinks tight.

Work and hobby combined

Planning on a new grinder with all the fancy attachments next year so I downloaded the drawings from the "Sayber OSG" Open Source Grinder Project by

After spending a day learning a new software package add-on for AutoCad the little light bulb came on, Make a 3D model of the grinder.

No idea what I am going to do with the completed model just yet but practice is never wasted.
