This book shows how a welted leather sheath for a fixed blade is designed and constructed. It explains the basic principles and introduces variants executed in different ways. The reader can learn through these projects and use these techniques to create their own designs. This volume teaches a welted sheath design with both a separate Mexican loop and a snap fastener. Each step, from the first sketch to the final leather treatment, is explained comprehensibly through words and images. You will also find a template for each sheath. A general introduction to materials and tools rounds off this volume.
