Did this one for a friend who happens to be an African PH in Tanzania.
Do to the Cite treaty laws I wasnt confident that the Zebra inlay sheath would be simple to fly in and out of the country so I made him a working sheath to go along with it. The Zebra inlay is the sheath some of you know I was told from a very well known sheathmaker was impossible to make do to hair on hide. I went ahead and couldnt make it and there it is.
I was going to an 1900`s safari look as his Double rifle is an English rifle from that time period which he still uses as a Professional Hunter.
Blade:Forged W2 high carbon steel
Handle: AAA Grade Ambonya Burl
Fittings:Stacked Nickle Silver
Sheaths: Hand sewn Inlayed Zebra Hide
Due to cites treaty Peg and I were afraid of flying in and out of country so I made a Tiger striped working sheath I threw in. Both are High ride carry pouch style. I was going to a 1900`s turn of the century safari antique sort of look with the inlaid Zebra and still be very functional..
