    I've used this guy for a knife sheath, and an ammo slide for my drilling with shotgun and CF round loops on the same unit - the quality is exceptional and John is a nice guy to boot. I very happily recommend his work.

    What sort of knife is it? I've just been given a handmade leather skinning knife sheath I have no use for you could have cheap if you want. PM me if you want some pics/measurments

    Used to be a family busines in Blenheim called Brooks Brothers. I think they are still going. They do all sorts of leather work ...

    Thanks @gonetropo but I may have been a bit slow here....

    If you get stuck and have no joy @Speill I may be able to make something for you possibly..... But probably not as cheap as the pros as I hand make mine , including stitching so a fair bit of time involved.

    Here's some examples anyway.....

    @Speill I often find the BR sheaths get loose over time and lose their snugness. Their sheaths are a failing really. What I do is put one or 2 stick on corn protection pads on the inside of the sheath at the fattest point of the handle. That tightens them up.

    I can make one out of kydex if you like, kydex is not as pretty as leather but is immune to water, blood, petrol , mud etc etc.

    I make ones for fishing knives out of old plastic drain pipe. All that is required is a heat gun.....they click into place like the kydex ones and I add a thumb ramp for ease of removal
