This sheath is designed specifically and exactly for the Gränsfors Bruk Splitting MaulIT WILL ALSO fit the Gränsfors Bruks Large Splitting Axe. It is made out of full-grain vegetable-tanned cowhide and then stained with the appropriate color. 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 hand stitched and rivets are placed at the corners to reinforce the body. The axe head blade, when placed into the sheath, is prevented from touching the rivets or the stitching because of the welt. The retention strap is then secured with a rivet and a snap is added for easy on/off action. This sheath is built to last, and quality hand made in the USA (Spokane, Washington). Finish to the edges of the leather is applied for aesthetic appeal. The color of the leather may vary, and may be a darker or lighter. There may also be slight variations in the evenness of color distribution on the sheath.

    I purchased two (2) sheaths from ROG, for my Gränsfors Bruk Large Splitting axes. The craftsmanship, quality, and function of this sheath is impeccable. Worth the price.
