American Bushman Sheathworks
Since I'm in a comic vein I thought I'd show you what happens when I need a sheath in a hurry.
I've grown so reliant on leather from JRE Industries and Concealex from Survival Sheath Systems that I whip up a monstrosity like the one pictured when given an opportunity to make my own.
That's right, the Bush Tool needed something to cover the edge and I decided to go ahead and rig it up so I can strap it to the side of my pack. What you're seeing is the cardboard sleeve the machete came in wrapped in several layers of gaffer's tape. I chose green because it'll be easier to camo paint if I decide to "decorate" it. I've also got a "belt loop" made of some thin cordage and a "pouch" on the front for a Doan Magnesium Firestarting Tool.
It's sure not pretty but it gets the job done until I can get down to see Dan and Spen for a more elegant solution.
I just looked at the picture and it appears that I've made a right-handed sheath. Nuts!
Well, it doesn't look like there will be any sheath makers put out of business now that I'm in the sheath making business...
Thanks for reading,
