Some Custom Work.


Today is our good friend's Daughters 1st Birthday. Happy Birthday Jolene! For her birthday I made her this pair of booties hopefully to get her through a month or so before she out grows them. They are 12 oz tooling leather soles, and moose-hide uppers, super soft and comfy. They were a blast to make, and turned out exceedingly well!


I also was commissioned to make a custom pancake style sheath for this antler knife. The shape of the knife was really curved in the handle and made it harder to bring the sheath up high, I brought it up as high as I comfortably could while making it secure in the sheath. This sheath is made from 10oz Veg-Tanned, then soaked in propitiatory wax mixture for protection and stiffness.
