Great looking blade grind Tony. How long are the handles on the two wood scaled knives?

Very nice sheaths Tony. The ones at the top have a kind of "Norse-ish" look to them and the bottom one looks kind of "Keltic" in a way. Where did the idea for the designs come from? I'd be willing to bet you have a formal education.

Thanks Steve. Those handles are 2.75." These knives were a special order, with the size determined by the customer. A bit short for me, but they do ride nicely in the back pocket.

Thanks Mike. Those sheaths are the result of trial and error. I have probably made 100+ fixed blade sheaths of all shapes and sorts.
The design on these came through a process. I ground a piece of steel down and made the sheep's foot stamp. I was stamping my work on the back, but one day decided to stamp the front instead. Why hide the mark? The next sheath I stamped a walking pattern with the touch mark. The next sheath needed a path for the feet to walk on...and you can see the result.
No formal art education. I am a pastor by training and practice.
Knives and leather are calming to the mind.

Well you sure fooled the heck outta me. I could see those designs coming from a background in ancient cultures with months, if not years of study. Well done Sir. I said this before Tony, I might have to commission you to make a sheath for me one of these days, and I ain't hardly joking.

Anytime Mike. It might take a bit to get to it, but we should be able to barter for blades easy enough.

Scott, thanks for the follow. (I suppose that is you on fb).
Yes, I sell most knives; some I give away, and some I can’t seem to part with. I will have a couple of those back pockets available in June.

Here is a combo I never should have let go of. My daughter was having surgery, it was uninsurable, and we needed the funds.

Leather wrapped in rawhide with tanned buckskin fringes.
