As apposed to forging a knife and making a sheath, I have a couple beautiful Scott Teaschner knife sheaths with some of my older knives. One is a nice hollow ground extreme drop point Brute de Forge that I don't use anymore. I actually like really thin knives without the flared finger guard for skinning as the flare seems to get in my way. So the only sensible thing to do is make a knife to fit Scott's beautiful sheath. This one is 6 3/4 inches OAL forged from a 4 inch piece of 1 X 3/8 inch bar stock of 1084 carbon steel with filed checker groves on the spine. I'm thinking some nice sheep horn will look good with this sheath. I have about 10 knives awaiting handles out so my forge is turned off for now...tippit

Simple walnut would look nice. It has a no nonsense working class look that I like in a field knife.

Stabilized Walnut or River Birch would look nice. [bigsmyl] I like the file work on the back of the blade!
