This sheath is designed specifically and exactly for the Council Tool Woodcraft Pack Axe, both the 19″ version and the 24″ version. It is made out of full-grain vegetable-tanned cowhide and then stained with a brown stain. The leather is treated with Fiebings Mink Oil (available from us here).
The construction of the sheath starts with three pieces of leather: the main body of the sheath, the securing strap and the welt. The main body is folded over a welt that is inserted between the two folded halves which prevents the blade of the inserted axe from cutting the stitch that is placed to hold the sheath together. The sheath is then glued, hand stitched and steel rivets are placed at the corners to reinforce the body. The axe head blade, when placed in the sheath, is prevented from touching the rivets because of the welt. The retention strap is then secured with a steel rivet and a steel snap is added for easy on/off action. This sheath is built to last, and quality hand crafted in the USA (Spokane, Washington). Finish to the edges of the leather is applied for aesthetic appeal. Watch how we make a similar sheath on YouTube:
