Sheath Your Knife
Keep your knife from cutting things it shouldn't.

Come learn how to make a leather sheath suitable for that knife you made in Simple Knives, Nothing But Knives, or Advanced Knifemaking (or for a random knife you happen to own or made elsewhere).

In the first session of this class, we will demonstrate the process of making a custom sheath to fit oyur knife.
In the second session, you can complete your sheath or, if you've been zipping along, make a second sheath under supervision.
A variety of leathers and all the necessary tools will be provided. If there's a particular leather you have that you want to use, bring it and we'll see if it's suitable.

There will be an $8 materials fee for this class.

Don't forget to bring your knife with you!
