Paul Long started working with leather while attending Texas A&I back in 1951, and it remained a hobby of his until he retired in 1995. After retirement, Paul trained with a master boot and saddle maker for a year. This gave him a good foundation for taking his leather work into almost any direction. In 2004, Paul was asked to make some sheaths for a friend of his who made knives, and the rest is history. Now Paul specializes strictly in knife sheaths, and with nearly 60 years of experience in working with leather, he has become one of the leading sheath makers of our nation.
This DVD expands on the techniques covered in Pauls first DVD, Basic Pouch Sheaths. While you will get to watch Paul build a more complex sheath from start to finish, some of the explanations about the materials used, the tools used, and the basic process of sheath making are not covered with the same level of detail as they are in the first DVD.
