Together we will discuss, design, and make sheaths for knives which you bring to class. We will cover several styles of sheaths and their construction techniques, fitting, leather selection and more. Leather donated by Hermann Oak Leather Co.

Materials to Bring: Knives for which to make sheaths. Students should have their own professional collection of properly shaped, sharpened, and polished tools: pencil, head knife or similar, strop, a #5 or #6 French skiver, #3 and #5 common edge bevelers, edge slicker, wing dividers and a cutting surface.
