details the outer flap is 10-12oz oil tanned leather with a gummed flesh side (will not use again edges tend to not want to take a slick look and feel not my preference) The interior is veg tanned 4-5oz (if I make another, which I will it will be the same as the exterior 10-12oz approx. 1/8th inch thick. Process: the interior is wet/vacuum molded and hand formed (boned) the stitching is done by hand using 2 needles and heavy waxed nylon thread the holes are made by an awl (saddle stitched) enjoy the pix and as always any and all comments are greatly appreciated!!!

Nice work...I used to be in the shoe repair business and still make knife cases and the occasional holster (for myself) and really enjoy working by hand...lot of fun.

Signs011 the big blade will take a finger off without even blinking....should have just used a chunk of wood or something to hold the case open....Facepalm...only running this poll to see if its gonna be worth the time and effort to offer these cases....anyone want a big Nordic SE?!

OK! I jumped in I just spent the last 4.5 hours cutting 12oz, 8oz and 5oz veg tan leather tomorrow will see me vacuum molding all the center pieces and hopefully dying all the pieces to prep for stitching! It looks like there will be eight of these cases on this run. I decided to add a stitch between the handle and head section for more strength/durability, in doing so I had to widen the case by 1/4" I may just do some finger carving on them we'll see!
