thats a good sheath,i[almost] always cut out a paper template and put it togethor first because it is Really easy to get backwards when working with leather [or kydex] if your paper template comes out backwards just reverse the folds,lolthen make your cuts,you can also use a shrpie to make a dot on interior sides.i love stitching up sheaths,and some come out pretty good :) keep at it,it only gets better

Hey... This has become a cool DIY knife sheath thread! I have only ever made one... Threw it together out of necessity to give a "Kiridashi" I acquired a home so it can be thrown into my toolbox. This little blade is is my "forever exacto" (it's sharper than any exacto tho! ). I picked it up recently in Tokyo. It's hand forged with "Aogami" carbon steel so it'll take and retain a wicked edge.

I used some buffalo nubuck I had been using for slingshot pouches and learned how to saddle stitch on the fly... not a very neat stitch but it'll do... I think I should have given it a welt as well - maybe if this one comes apart, I'll do it again properly.

i was hesitant to post this,and im not trying to hijack the thread,but after seeing urban shooters pics i had to post this.In my opinion the Kiridashi is the epitome of blades,ithe grace and simplicity of its form,the functionabilty,and style is,of all the blades i have or have had,my favorite.i made this one for a girl friend,who is an artist,out of a worn out Nicholson file,gutted paracord handle wrap,and its sheath is actually a poplar and red oak box. Hope this post will be ok with you my friend.She Loved it :)

Wow! That's a gorgeous Kiridashi! I love the subtle texturing on the surface from the file and the grind looks really good. Any artist would really enjoy using this. I agree it's the epitome of functional simplicity! You guys are amazing with what you are able to craft and you do it so darned well. Respect!!
Thanks so much for the kind words :)

Wowzers that is a sweet blade skarrd, I like that style of blade a lot but it is the one style that I have yet to own. I love the paracord work and that box is super nice too. Just the total compilation is amazing :)

Just curious, did you put any treatment on the paracord or is it just the light? Thanks :)
Thanks! I did I always polyurethane the cord,especially the knots,loland as I told Mo I will look around here for some suitable steel my friend.

Another fine blade Skarrd. I need to place an order with you for a Kiridashi. I like the ones I've seen online and such but they are too rich and dainty. I'm a commoner, not a dandy.

Thanks Mo,i will look around here n see what I have metal wise,big hands right?
Bingo!! Are you using some kind of voodoo steel? My Skarrd is still razor sharp. I've cut all types of cord and rope, pried and scraped, even a few apples. It is like I never use it?

voodoo steel lol,maybe,i dont really know what the steel was,almost threw it aside cuz it was so thinmbut it flexed without warping and shot a maegaton of sparls when I touched it to the grinder so I gave it a chance ,the blade I have is still Uber sharp,and you wouldn't believe some of the stuff I cut,hopin to run across some more,someday :)
