Now "roll" the knife over on it's spine without re-positioning it.
Then "roll" the knife down on to the other side and continue to trace about 3/8" around the blade
Normally I wet the backside of the leather and fold it over the blade and check the lines. Compare the lines to the blade and see if there is going to be enough room for a welt and stitching.
I continue to draw the pattern and make a sweep transition line across the opening. The belt strap will be about 1" to 1-1/2" wide and about 5" long. This will allow a 2" belt to pass through it when it's glued and stitched down.
Once we're happy with the shape and form we can get fancy.
DIY Leather Stamps tutorial.
Ready to dye.
For this sheath I used Fiebing's Tan and then went around the edges with Fiebing's USMC black. Rubbing the black towards the edge so as to leave some small tan area in the middle.
