Hi

I made this knife and sheath for a lady that I work with.  She bakes a Red Velvet snowman cake in a form, ices it with white icing, names it something like "Marie Antoinette" or "William Wallace" and then beheads it before we eat it.  I've been working on this setup for 3 years.  I originally intended to bead the snowman, but well that was beyond my patience level.  The knife is a Track of the Wolf Cumberland Bowie with Ivory Micarta grips and a brass bolster.

I tried several times to carve a decent pine branch over the snowman's head, but they all looked weird.  I'll work more on it next year.  I have a similar kitchen knife that I'm working on for a friend from work with the same style sheath but a more traditional rose pattern.  I managed to do the alternating sinew colors by tying the two pieces together and pulling the knot towards the middle layer of the sheath.

Later

That's certainly a novel idea. Looks like you definitely had fun with this one. Cool sheath.

Thanks, I had fun with it.  The Sheath keeps the knife locked in pretty well.  The leather for the two belt loops was thinner than I should have used and is bent at too much an angle.  I did MUCH better with the holes for the sinew, but not even close to professional.  I figured that beading would be much easier and I had to LEARN carving for this sucker.  I plan to work on floral stuff for a year or so and see if I can  make myself a few holsters.

Thanks
