In this video I show how to make a pancake knife scabbard. These scabbards are very popular and easy to make. They are a great project whether you are new to leatherwork or a seasoned maker.
The scabbards that I am making in this video are patterned for a double blade trapper knife set at a forward tilt for a more comfortable fit and ease of taking the knife out. Here is a link to the Case Trapper knives that are most common for this style (this is an amazon affiliate link and we get a few pennies if you buy using this link). In the video I walk you through my entire process from cutting them out to finishing the edges.
If you are wanting to make a few simple items that sell well to your customers, or want to make some gifts for christmas this is the item I suggest.
If you enjoy the video and would like to purchase the companion pattern pack for the video you can purchase it HERE. The pattern pack is an INSTANT DOWNLOAD PDF that includes the cut patterns for both the front and back including stitch lines as well as 8 different tooling patterns to get you started.
The versatility of these scabbards are endless. You can buckstitch them instead of sewing them, you can make them rough out for a more rugged look, you can make them simple by using scrap latigo, or make them as ornate as you would like with tooling, painting, and maybe bling (if your into that).
Thanks so much and I hope you find the video helpful.
