This hand-forged Humphry knife, with cast-bronze personalised hilt and cast-bronze eagle’s head, needed a sheath to suit. Due to the length of the blade it was necessary to support the handle in the sheath, and rather than have a strap it was decided to extend the sheath over the handle instead; a small cut allows the hilt detail to be seen, and since the hilt pops through slightly it also helps to retain the knife in place.

Veg-tanned leather with hand-tooled wing design extending from the eagle’s head, stained in brown and treated with dubbin. Lined with calf-skin.
