Heavy Duty Leather Axe Sheath


This heavy duty hunter's/camper's axe sheath was made for a U.S. Army First Sergeant (retired). It's cut from 10-11 oz. Hermann Oak cowhide, hand tooled with First Sergeant insignia and dyed in Antique Tan with black burnished edges, black stiffener piece sewn on with scarlet thread and black initials.

This sheath is hand sewn with a welt inserted along the blade end to protect stitching. Two line 24 antique brass finish snaps secure the protective flap. Edges are burnished smooth with gum tragacanth. The satin finish is water repellent (not water proof) and has been hand rubbed with Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP leather preservative.

I can work up one of these nice additions to your camping tool box in any size, any color, tooled or plain. Plain will be less cost. This is a good looking axe sheath intended to be used for many years.

The axe (hatchet) shown (not included) is a 1 3/4 lb. Hunter's Axe with 18" hickory handle made by Collins Axe available from Ace Hardware, HHU-1 3/4H-C; 32718.

We guarantee all GRIT COMPANY products including custom orders and will refund the purchase price in full should you be less than pleased upon receipt of your item. We can't however, promise to re-make a custom order that has been returned (which has so far never happened). Our agreement to remake an item would be predicated on the reasons for dis-satisfaction and determination of our ability to understand and meet your expectation. Expectations are sometimes difficult to communicate and it's entirely possible for us to misunderstand what it is you really want. We do our best to take responsibility for these sorts of circumstances. Custom work always requires good communication between customer and shop - it goes with the territory.
