The sheath of a japanese knife making


May 8 is the Parent's Day in South Korea.
 Under the tarp, I make a sheath
that I have put off.





I've put more work into it,
because it is made for
the knife of a friend.




This knife was produced by Hattori,
japanese brand that got known
as an expert at Damascus steel.
Its traditional japanese wooden sheath
is unhandy to carry about.




Finished.
Simple, lightweight, recycled. :)
This leather comes out from
a dumping sofa.




I add two rivet for a safety device.
Two snap buttons hold the knife tightly.




The thicker leather is, the better it will be.
But I have no leather thicker than this.

  1. The two rivets should help make up for the leather not being as thick as you'd like. Good job!
