    Default Leather work

    This might be the wrong spot for this but I was wondering if anyone had any info on who might do leather work preferably closer to Soldotna but it doesn't have to be. I'm mainly looking for someone who makes knife sheaths.
    Thanks

    What about Two Sisters in Soldotna? Or maybe swing by Joann's Fabrics and ask them if they know anybody....???

    The last time I checked with Diamond D on getting something made to order, ( just recently ) they were not doing any 'custom' leather work at this time.

    Try Odean Hall with Reaper Knives. He makes fantastic quality knives and sheaths. His phone number is 398-5374 and he lives in Sterling.

    Hey buddy. I've been meaning to join the forum, but this finally gave me the push. I am Mark Hendricks and am the Owner/operator of Cold Front Leather. All the stuff I've done has been word of mouth. I aim to be as well known as diamond d but stick to custom orders only. i guarantee my stuff for life. I can do functional and or custom decorative tooling and make any color. Feel free to call 242-5482. i am in anchorage just so you know. Thanks!!

    Just wanted to mention that you did say "closer to Soldotna", and the reason I said about Two Sisters, was because a local taxidermist friend of mine said they did a great job on sowing up the material on his bear hides for his rugs. Just thought they might do it, or would possibly know who did...???

    Thanks everyone for the info and advice my sons and I have been following it up. My 2 sons have been making a few knives and after making their own sheaths would prefer to have some one else make them. Their latest knives are pretty nice if I can figure out how to post pics I will.

    I have one of Odean's knives. The knife and sheath are fantastic. I know he does holster work, not sure about knife sheaths.

    I should probably stay quiet, but I was going to ask, why not try it yourself? All the stuff you need is at Black Elk Leather on OS Highway including the heavy duty leather, dyes, stitching awls, copper rivets, and embossing tools. They have in store expertise and books to guide you, and they will ship the stuff to you. You can find tons of how-tos online as well. You might find that you enjoy leather work! Or, if you get the stuff, I'll do it for you, though I am not an expert by any means.
