    An old buddy of mine from childhood requested a custom sheath for his favorite, large chef's knife for X-mas.

    And made some knives for some other relatives for X-mas. Cherry, Lacewood, and Walnut for these handles.
    One who works in a clandestine activity overseas is in need of a small, discreet knife but needed something other than a typical belt sheath that just screams "HEY LOOK IM CARRYING A KNIFE AROUND", so, I designed the small pouch sheath for it.. went ahead and made the same kind of the other's knives as well.





    For my Mum, I made one my small knives as well- she will keep it in the kitchen, or on the desk, rather than carrying it about, so I made a different pouch for hers.
    Cherry for the handles on this one as well.
