He has made sheaths for all kinds and makes of knives, including originals and some of the best of the modern makers. His has been making knives and sheaths for the custom market since 1973. His presentation knives, hawks, and sheaths are based on the styles of the American frontier incorporating carving, beadwork, rawhide, braintan, and other period correct materials.
