Much different and great skill, awesome job Tony!

Dale, these are the first puuko sheaths I have made. The leather I used was not exactly correct. It did not draw up tightly as planned. Thanks.
Doc, thanks very much. I do not have a machine. All of the stitching is done by hand. Sometimes I use a drill press, followed by an awl, for the holes. Sometimes just an awl, depending upon the thickness/stiffness of the leather.
