My sister put a small hand-forged pocket knife on her Christmas list. It came with a leather sheath, but who am I to give my own flesh and blood a knife in a sheath I didn’t make myself?
I’ve never made a sheath before, so I traced the existing one and replicated it in shape. The original was a little crooked, so mine is too (ignore the stitch counts ;) ), but oh well. To set the labradorite I cut a hole completely through the leather, glued a ~1oz blue leather liner to the inside, and glued the stone in. The blue liner boosts the color of the translucent labradorite.
The sheath is welted, and a length of latigo lace passes through the hole to secure the knife and allow the sheath to be worn as a pendant.
