Leather sheath for my brother knife

   I found some time after work and managed to make a sheath for a hunter with cocobolo wood made by my brother Kamil. I wanted to make some kind of photo tutorial but making the sheath took me so much time... so i have only few photos.

The final product - short edge heavy duty knife and a heavy duty sheath ;)

Made by hand: The Knifemaker

A have a lot of work lately and no time for making knives so this time I will show something else. Some time ago I found a short film in the Internet. A film about what knifemaking and handmade really is. It is really well made and describes the point of view with which I fully agree. Watch it. It is worth it.


I can't wait to go to my workshop again :)

A cold weekend in the workshop

Finally I found some time to go to my workshop. It was a cold weekend. About 15°C in my house, -20°C outside and something beetween -20 and 15°C in my workshop ;). Unfortunatelly I wasn't able to finish my ironwood-micarta hunter knife but only about 2-3 hours of finishing left. When the knife will be ready I will make a leather sheath and will be looking for a new home for it. As a relax I cut a brown canvas micarta scales for a neck and... that's it. I hope that next time I will at least do some grinding.
