I always enjoy improving my leather carving skills. These oak leaf patterns are a classic stand-by of American leather carving; they just never get old. The difference between a good piece and an excellent piece is the dimensionality that makes the design jump out of the canvas and really grab you.
On this one the oak leaf pops out of the border, and the reverse coloring makes the carving stand out.
The leather is vegetable tanned, dyed a medium brown color. Gold synthetic whipping twine adds some contrast, and the entire sheath is sealed inside and out. The strap is not integral to the sheath and can be replaced if cut. The strap design moves it out of the way of the blade when inserting and removing.
