Leather sheath for Estwing Fireside Friend
This thick, quality leather sheath was made specifically to fit the Estwing Fireside Friend axe. The axe itself is NOT included in this listing. It is pictured only to show how well the sheath fits. The leather was cut, glued, stitched (with heavy duty bonded nylon thread), dyed (stained), and given a protective finish all by hand. It fits the Fireside Friend like a glove. Extra wide welt is secured with a double row of hand stitching or a single row of stitching combined with 2 copper rivets. You can choose either a heavy duty line 24 snap or Sam Browne button stud for closure. The back side of the snap/stud is secured against the welt, not against your blade. This requires more leather, but we feel it is worth it so you don't have to worry about the metal snap back marring your blade finish. This sheath is durable and built to last.
