This beautiful hand-forged damasca steel Saex, with its Yew handle and silverware, needed a sheath. It was made in less than ideal conditions, with limited materials available. It was created to reflect the high level of workmanship on the Saex, and not be historically accurate.

A wooden core was made, and the leather was cut to fit closely around this, and a mouthpiece was also cut. A design based upon a wolf’s head was settled on, and hand tooled into the leather. It was then stained and finished with dubbin, and cross-stitched into place using linen thread. Suspension loops had buckles fitted to allow for adjustment.
