This is for a 'left-facing' sheath which is designed to fit a Gransfors Bruks Wildlife Hatchet.
It's hand-cut from beautiful 3.5-4mm veg tan full grain shoulder leather and hand-dyed with brown Fiebings dye then polished with brown 'finish'. It's hand-stitched with black artificial sinew, has a thick welt to protect the stitching and a brass press-stud and its edges are hand-painted with edge-kote! And its embossed with my makers mark!
Please note...for your information, the boring but important stuff!:
1...the pictures in this listing show various sheaths I've made in the past. Every hide I buy, and I buy from multiple leather dealers, takes dye and polish differently....sometimes a mix I make will appear darker on one hide and lighter on another. The images show slight variations and give you a good idea of what to expect. If 'exact shade' is very important, please contact me first to discuss.
2...I would recommend a customer abroad pays for signed for delivery. I know it's an extra expense but for a peaceful and stress free life for everyone concerned I would advise it. If you choose not to please understand that I will not be responsible for the masses of postal systems around the world. I will obtain a proof of posting at very minimum anyway, but the choice is yours. Multiple-item orders/over £50 or so will be always be sent by signed for delivery. Please wait for me to send you a correct invoice if necessary.
3...On a few rare occasions out of the hundreds of sheaths I've sold, a customer has discovered slight fitting issues, usually with the strap. I like to make my sheaths as tight and snug as possible for obvious reasons. All of the sheaths I make are fitted to my own personal axes. Due to the fact that G.B. axes are also hand-made, now and again a small problem arises. Please don't be alarmed, it's been very rare and the problem has always been resolved within minutes....just drop me a line and we can go from there. Please do not try to force the sheath or make adjustments prior to contacting me!
