Hey,
I'm gonna be making my first knife soon, but my dad has said to me
"You can't have a fixed blade knife if you don't have a sheath!"
So how do I make a sheath for my own custom knife?
I dunno if it's like a really obvious thing because there are no threads on this sort of thing??

Thanks

I've a few questions if that's ok. (I have looked but couldn't find the answers anywhere obvious)

1. Are there any particular types of leather you should use for different jobs? i.e what animal is best for sheaths?

2. What thickness should that leather be?
