Little neck knife
« on: June 12, 2019, 02:40:43 AM »
I finished this one up today. The sheath is my first attempt at a neck sheath. Iím still developing my leather skills as you all can probably tell.





I love the smell of Walnut shavings in the morning!

That is a very nice little knife. Looks like a good user for sure. Also, leather work is looking good; keep it up.

Tomorrow I am going to sand a little off the right side of the sheath to even up the sides. Didnít notice it until I looked at these photos.

Will,
Your skill at blacksmithing far,exceeds your leather work for sure. Your attention to detail will soon come through I'm sure. A stitching punch will even things up nicely.
I just love the little blade I got from you. By far my favorite!
In His grip,

Dane

Wow, tiny little thing.  I like it.

If you're starting leatherwork, this is a tight looking little project.  Keep it up, and always ask guys like James Rogers, Sligo Bill and the other folks you see posting work.

When you sand the edge, try this;

Round the corners and finish sanding with fine paper.
Get a piece of canvas and wrap it around your four fingers, or an old cloth glove
wet the edges and rub in some beeswax or parrafin or a mixture of both.  Don't take any prisoners
With the glove or canvas, rub the snot out of the edges so the heat of your friction melts the wax into the edges.  Brisk and rapid swipes until you get the shine.

Keep up the good work.
