Sheaths

Sheaths

After the axe has been hafted with a new handle, the blade wiped with camellia oil and the handle with linseed oil, the axe is fitted with a custom sheath.

Because each vintage axe is slightly different Brant & Cochran fits each one with a custom made leather sheath. Each sheath is made from new 5-6 ounce chrome tanned cowhide, hand riveted, and sewn.

Always put the sheath back on your axe when not in use.  As Bernard Mason reminds us in his classic book Woodsmanship (1954) "Muzzled Axes Don't Bite."
