That kind sir is an outstanding sheath for one beautiful pig sticker. Good job. I really like the stitching as well.

Well, it's almost done.

I soaked the entire sheath in cold water so that it would dry evenly. There was some staining where the wet lacing went through the sheath. So I soaked the whole thing. From past experience, I know that it will even things out that way.

When it's completely dry, I'll put the Chicago screw in and call it good. I'll take a final pic of it and post in in post 7 and that will be that.

Thanks for the encouragement gentlemen and a special thank you to Glasshartt for the beautiful leather.

Do you plan on waterproofing? Boot grease works wonders on leather.

I dunno' Doc. Frankly, I was thinking about just using some mineral oil.

I'm not sure if it will work or not. Maybe I'll pick up some Neetsfoot oil. I can always use some around the house.

I use Mink Oil on my boots, but it's too nasty for the sheath.

Looks good. I may attempt a sheath for one of the knives I made. Thanks for the how to.

I put the Chicago screw in place last night. I lightly sanded the sheath before I soaked it in water and it came out with a somewhat distressed finish. I prefer that look and it hides a bunch of marks from the clamps and from where I had to clean off excess glue. At this point, I'm not sure if I'll treat it with some type of waterproofing or not. If I do, I'll probably just coat it with Neetsfoot oil.

I posted these last two pics in post #7 to keep continuity, but I'm putting them here as well:
