New axe sheath for Robin Wood axe.

The best way to keep an axe sharp is to store it in a leather sheath when not in use. It’s fun to make your own axe sheath but many folk would rather buy one and concentrate on the woodworking. We have sourced some of the best vegetable tanned leather available made by Clayton’s one of the last traditional tanneries at Chesterfield. The place is amazing, can you imagine the smell?IMG_3313-1

Three layers are cut out and riveted together to make a really strong axe sheath.

We then finish the edges nicely, dye and wax them before a final buffing finishes them off.
