    Hi Folks
    New here. It looks like there's a lot of good people on this forum. Was wondering if anyone has a template for making a leather sheath for a Mora companion (or any Mora). Thanks

    Morning Bob and welcome to the forum,

    I'm not sure that a standard template exists. When I've made leather sheaths it all begins with a pattern made out of an old cereal box - wrapped around, pulled tight and cut so that it basically fits, then make another one so that it looks like it will work, then cut the leather a little bigger so that you can make any final tweaks as you build the real thing. By the time you have made your fourth or fifth, you'll be a bad hand!

    If you type in sheath template for mora in the search box on YouTube there are several available and video as to how to go about using them but Ogri's suggestion is as good as any.
