It’s hard to believe that just 100 years ago if you were looking to sheath a firearm or a knife of any kind it had to be done in leather. There was no kydex or even plastic in 1917. This really puts our advancements in perspective. Still, we could see a time like that come again. Do you know how to make plastic? What if you would like to live a more self reliant lifestyle that includes creating your own things from leather? There is something rustic and beautiful about leather.
This how to will walk you through the process of creating a leather sheath for a carving knife. Better than that is the fact that its a buffalo leather sheath. There may be nothing as American as this. Remember, cows are from China. The buffalo though, that is about as American as it gets.
