Last week Ty Black stopped by the shop to bring by some leather goods and to play with Matilda. Being a chair maker the scorp is a tool that I can not do without. Protecting the edge, and my fingers, of a sharp scorp is difficult to do, unless one knows a person that is proficient in making such devices. This is where Ty comes in. Besides being a woodworker, Ty is an excellent leather-smith.
Above is the scorp sheath entirely hand stitched. I witnessed this process while Ty was making an adaptation, lets just say I think I will stick to working wood. He also went the extra mile and made me a scraper wallet and a block plane holster.
I am looking forward to getting the finished Tool Attache' made of Crazy Horse Leather. If you need some leather tool protection, drop Ty an email, you won't be disappointed.
