I just finished a couple of sheaths. The first one is for a Mora and the second if for a BRK Liten Bror, I would love to see what everyone else is making out there,

New one I made over christmas as a prototype. A couple changes I want to do on the next one. But all fits snug and easy access.

Wears either right or left thigh. Or scout style across the back.

Nice work N, You use the hawk as a camp axe or just a thrower?

Thanks =) You got some nice sheaths up there too. Just a camp axe. It's usually on my ruck. But the large bowie serves the same purpose really. The bowie also makes a great drawknife when making a bow in the woods. But the tomahawk can quickly be turned into and adze if needed for a project. So I usually have all 3 on any extended trip. Sometimes I just want to make a project in camp to keep entertained and with 3 cutting implements all my bases are covered ;]

I'm hoping to find a heavy duty machine for sewing sheaths this year.


I very rarely throw a hawk. Get sick of making handles lol...



I have a couple special knives just for fun for throwing once in awhile.

Just a few I have made this last year. Made a couple large knife sheaths I will post in a few days.


Joy is a great teacher, but so is dispair. Wonder is a great teacher, but so is confusion. Hope is a great teacher, but so is disillusionment. And life is a great teacher, but so is death. To deny yourself any of those in any aspect is not experiencing life totally.

Playing around with some old leather. Variations on a theme.
