A neck knife custom with stag and a tooled pocket sheath

This weeks post I am posting a custom carry knife that was
set up for a neck carry knife but can also be carried
on the belt if wanted.

The blade on this knife is about 2 plus inches and the handle
is stag with brass pins and rear lanyard hole.
The leather through the hole has a handmade stag bead attached.

The tooling on the sheath was all worked by hand as well.

Another tooled piece was hand worked on this square pocket sheath
of a custom tree and mountain scene.

Thank you

A custom Nessmuk Knife

This week I am posting a custom neesmuk knife set
I recently completed.

The knife has a beautiful tiger maple handle with
brass pins and the blade has my pattern and patina
aged finish.

For the set a matching ferro rod was made and the
sheath is a dangler that was hand stitched and
made with a loop to hold the ferro rod.

All of my Sheaths are individually hand cut without a template from veg tan leather.
They are hand stitched and antiqued one at a time.

Thank you
