    I got a couple of knives that need a sheath.
    One is an Arkansas Toothpick inherited from my father.
    The other is a custom made blade from the Takefu Knife artisans in Takefu Village Japan.

    Any recommendations for books on the subject are welcome.

    Yeah, I learned from YouTube and started making my own leather items, no problems.
    Books are a waste of time these days when it comes to learning a trade like this.
    Go here:
    Choose your preference, quick tips for those who know what they are doing, beginner's videos if you like, there are build-along videos, and long tutorials, too.

    Obviously, padawan, you didn't think of it because you are nearly Methuselah's age and don't think weblike. Same as anyone under 40 wouldn't know what a dictionary is until they trip over one in the middle of the night (following the diuretic's directions) and looked it up later.

    Yes, I'm pretty sure I know this, got CRS this morning.

    As a training devise you might start with cardboard to make your mistakes on and work up from there.
