    Default Axe Sheath

    The temps were a little cooler today, so it was a nice day to sit by the fire pit and make a few sheaths for axes.

    Nice work! I want to try the stamps to pattern...do you just wet the leather and press the design into it?

    Get the leather wet, set the stamp, give it a good whack with a hammer.

    Best make that a small wooden or rawhide hammer. Rule out the claw hammer & sledge unless you have a gentle touch

    And I dont (have a gentle touch)..but I do have a nice dead blow hammer so all I need to do now is add the stamp set to me tandy order. Then I can start wrecking stuff until I can figure out how to line the pattern up so it looks half as nice as the stuff crash can turn out....I hope!

    This is true. I do use a rawhide hammer.

    Crash,
    Nice stuff. Would you share your sources for the leather and especially the hardware?
