Kevin puts the beadwork on commercially tanned deer leather, he wraps this all around tooling leather to further help protect the blade.
Kevin finishes the sheath with leather dangles that feature glass and brass beads. The rib bone knife handle is wrapped with the same color leather.
The piece is signed by the artist.
