Thank you very much for your kind words, Mike.
The sheath is sewed with tientos (strands of raw colt leather), central and edges seams and the button is woven with tientos. The sheath is made with raw cow leather knife shaved. The handle is also woven with tientos.

Thank you Paul and DC Knives
I'm from Argentina and this's a typical argentinian ( gaucho) craft. Making a handle and the sheath
take me almost a fortnight.
1) The cow hide is taken from a just dead animal, the fat is removed and is shaved with a kinfe.

That is a very interesting little device you have attached to the knife to cut strips (number 11), could we see another picture of it from a couple of different angles?
