A puuko sheath has a much different process than a normal sheath: carving, stretching, stitching, and dyeing.

Nice work Tony!
I have built a couple puuko sheaths, one for a puuko and another a puuko style for a fish knife.
They are a bit different but I like making them.

Beautiful work Tony! Do you have a heavy duty machine, for the stiching...or do you do it by hand?

Thanks Wally. Beautiful sheath you have there.

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.

That is extra amazing...that you are doing all of stiching by hand. Looks so perfect!!!!!

Tony I can't figure out if you are a leather worker or a knife maker. I guess you wear many hats and all well. ::tu::

Very attractive sheath Tony, well done. ::tu::
Just curious, is it a belt or pocket model?
