Western 648 Sheath

Post by Rossr » Sat Aug 15, 2020 1:48 am

Folks

Jerlin on the forum here had restored a western 648 knife. He wanted a sheath for it. I had the pleasure of making one up for him. Based off the photos he had and the pattern he made out came this sheath. I asked if he minded I post the photos and he was more than happy to oblige. Enjoy folks.

Looks good in your sheath! I like the way the cutout exposes the guard. Gives it a nice look!!! ::tu:: ::tu:: ::tu::

Beautiful sheath, great design and careful precise workmanship.
I think you will get many requests to make sheaths for 'naked' knives.

I am extremely pleased with the sheath Ross made for my Western 648. It is patterned after the original sheath, which I don't have. However, Ross made some improvements that make this a better sheath than the original. I highly recommend Ross for any leather work. He does great work and is super to work with. Thanks again, Ross for helping to make my Western 648 complete.
