    @Makael was gracious enough to make me a leather sheath for my Behemoth Chopper. I figured I would share some of his work here with you, so you can have an option if you're also thinking of leather for your CPK! The BC is too big for me to carry on my belt, so I had him leave off a belt loop. I usually carry inside of my pack, but he added some grommets so I could lash it to the outside of my pack if need be.

    Thank you again Makael!

    Great Project to do. Great feeling chopper!:thumbsup:

    Austin Double shoulder leather in Chestnut. Lined with Veg tanned liner so the hardware doesnt make contact with the blade.

    Another great piece @Makael ... It looks amazing and should be a great sheath for that BC for years to come!

    I know I am very happy with the sheath you just made for me ... may need one similiar to this for my MC when the time comes.

    Great pictures Makael ... and hope you enjoy that sheath Jonny !!!

    I believe he’s listed over in the sheath area, in the sticky thread for sheath makers. He also has some posts over there with nice pics.

    Nice job Mike, here's another one of @Makael 's great work on the ebonite medium chopper. [​IMG] He kind of overbuilds them;)

    He does overbuild his sheaths, but I'm not complaining at all. Just means it will take a beating when trudging through brush and briars in the woods!

    No website or anything but you can click on my pictures and Photobucket will come up with quite a few pictures. I will spend some more time organizing them into a leather category.

    Thanks guys, it's very much appreciated.

    You bring up something I haven't paid any attn to. I dig hard use knives, I search them out. The hard use aspect isn't a necessity but it helps justify the price. The last thing I would want is a failure. I also appreciate fit and finish and great materials.
    Without thinking about it, I try to build sheaths along the same lines. I have tossed many sheaths away due to mistakes.
    So if I'm fortunate enough to make a product someone can appreciate I couldn't be more satisfied. I'm happy to build a sheath that meets someone's needs, send it and all I've asked for payment is pay what you believe it's worth after you have a chance to have it in your hands. There are quite a few craftsman on the forums who do a great job.

    Here is one I finished last night for a Buck 103. Hd outer layer with a soft finished inner layer laminated together and then stitched around the perimeter.
