New MT...New Sheath
« on: April 28, 2019, 08:48:32 PM »
Had the LM Free P2 for a couple of weeks and ive got to say i love it.
Carried it every day, mainly carried in a belt sheath (modified LM Heritage sheath).
While i love the pocket clip carry, i cant trust keeping it in my pocket all the time, eg- at work, as it can slip out.
So to the drawing board i knocked up a new leather sheath.
Making a mould for the leather from some pine off cut, as ive done on past sheaths that seems to work the best for me.
Adding bumps and cut away's where needed for the main blade on the side and the pocket clip on the outside.
Went for a deep carry belt loop (high), as i prefer it sitting flush with the top of the belt- so it doesnt dig in when wearing it, etc.
All held together with a double saddle stitch of 1mm waxed thread.
Any way i managed to get it finished off today, after waiting for 2 coats of pro dye to cure and some coats of resolene to dry.
Its getting a trial tomorrow at work, so time will tell.
