Uncle built saddles for a living for decades. Father also did some leather work. For carving you want a good quality vegetable tanned leather. Busted my third cell phone recently. So I built a case based on a holster. LOVE IT!
People spend hundreds on good knives and then lack a way to protect them. The sheaths they come with are either plastic or card stock and both are death on a good blade. I build with a compressed edge waxed runner that will not take the edge off.
