Sheath for an older knife

I had this knife laying around. It's not one I made but just an older factory says West-cut on it. I cleaned it up and then made this sheath for it. Serviceable knife will be going out and a Christmas present for a relatively new adult hunter .

Figured you all would like a look

Those knives were made by western cutlery in Bolder CO. They still command a good price in good condition. It was said they had very good steel in them. Many of them had leather stacked handles on them. Nice leather work.

I have carried my western since I got it for Christmas in 1979. Gutted and skinned 5 deer with it this year. I sharpen in once a year, I doubt I will ever need another knife. Nice leather work too!!

Sadly most of my life has been wasted, but the rest I spent hunting, fishing, and trapping...

When I was a kid we had a Western Auto store in my home town. They were not only an auto parts store but they sold hunting and fishing supplies guns and ammo and even tools and appliances. They sold Western Cutlery hunting knives.

Thanks all for the kind words. It does say boulder Co. Below the west cut. I will say it took a nice edge when I sharpened it up. I'm sure there will be a happy hunter this Christmas especially since its completely unexpected gift.
