here is the leather .2,2 mm rawhide i think thats the best leather to use on a scandi you cudd use shft leather to but it dont gett as hard as rawhide

http://http://www.picfury.com/2n/DSCF0708-1-th.JPG (http://www.picfury.com/2n/DSCF0708-1.html)http://www.picfury.com/img/banner7.png (http://www.picfury.com/index.php?reff=1575)

cutt the leather vith an angel of 30dgr if you stand propper and have a verry sharp knife you be able to make it in one cut (verry hard to cut in dry raw hide)

I always appreciate it when people post their making progress as i hepls me immensely to fill the conceptual gaps in the making process. And i'm a visual person rather than a instruction reader.

look at the logo box and throw the instructions away :lol:
