blade knives
• Features detailed instructions for welted sheaths, in contrast to the quiver-like sheaths in Volume 1.

From basic leather working techniques to the professional-level tips you need to make your project its
best, this how-to book will walk you through the steps to produce two top-quality welted sheath designs: a
welted sheath with attached belt loop, and one with belt clip and protective strap. Each part of the process,
from making the first sketch to completing the final leather treatment, is explained in detail, with extensive
step-by-step photographs and templates. A general introduction to sheath making, basic information about
tools, and a glossary of technical terms are also included. This book gives you the know-how to make these
