Ray Mears Leather Wilderness Axe Sheath

£40.00

Weight: 62 g         2 reviews
The Ray Mears Leather Wilderness Axe Sheath has been developed specifically for use with the Gransfors Bruks Ray Mears Wilderness Axe.

This hard-wearing sheath slides onto the axe head from underneath and a heavy leather welt holds it in position safely. The flap fastens over the top with a neat brass Sam Browne stud holding the axe securely in its sheath.

With no strap to stretch or get tangled up, this design fits the axe easily and is compact enough to pop in your pocket when not in use.

Hand-made in-house by a craftswoman with over three decades of experience, the leather is vegetable tanned with the full, natural grain, and hand-dyed to the unique Woodlore colour. The edges are a burnished dark brown with a traditional crease line. Careful selection of materials and accuracy of construction negate the need for metal rivets; stitching is by hand using a rot-proof braided and waxed polyester thread. The Ray Mears 'Snowshoe' logo is discreetly embossed on the lower corner at the front.

For an insight into Ray's ethos on our leather goods, please view our Leather Goods page.

  • 8.5 cm at cutting edge
  • 6 cm at top folded edge
  • 5.5 cm at bottom edge
  • 6 cm at opening slot
Details:
  • Ray Mears 'Snowshoe' logo embossed on front
  • Weight: 62 g
  • Colour: Rich Brown
  • Axe not included

  THIS WAS A SLIGHTLY TRICKIER PURCHASE FOR ME AS THIS SHEATH WAS ABOUT 6MM BIGGER THAN THE CUTTING EDGE OF MY OLDER ESTWING AXE. I THOUGHT IT WORTH THE GAMBLE ON IT BEING LOOSE & THOUGHT I COULD USE CORD TO FIX IT ON? HOWEVER I FOUND A 100% BETTER SOLUTION. AN OLD WOODEN ROCKET FIREWORK STICK. I CUT IT SLIGHTLY SHORTER THAN THE LOWER LENGTH TO HIDE IT & GLUED IT ON THREE SIDES WITH LEATHER GLUE TIGHT AT THE BOTTOM & CLAMPED IT OVERNIGHT. NEXT DAY I PAINTED THE VISIBLE TOP & END WITH BLACK PAINT AS THE BRIGHT WOOD WAS TOO OBVIOUS. THEN FABSIL GOLD & AUSTRALIAN LEATHER CREAM TO SOFTEN & WATERPROOF & AGE THE LEATHER. THAT MINOR ADJUSTMENT HAS RESULTED IN A PERFECT FIT & I AM VERY PLEASED AS NOW ALL THREE OLD ESTWING AXES LOOK A ONE MILLION £ WITH NEW HANDLES & TOP CLASS LEATHER SHEATHS. WHAT AN UNBELIEVABLE TRANSFORMATION. I CAN NOW TAKE A PRIDE IN THOSE OLD BATTERED ESTWING AXES. MY ONLY RESERVATION IS THAT PERHAPS THE WOOD I USED MAY BE TOO SOFT & GET BROKEN BY THE VERY SHARP AXE HEAD? BUT IT WAS JUST A BETA TEST & I CAN ALWAYS USE A HARDER WOOD OR OTHER MATERIAL(LEATHER STRIP?) IF I NEED TO LATER AS IT WAS NOT A TIME & LABOUR INTENSIVE TWEAK. I AM SO PLEASED I TOOK THE GAMBLE. THIS SHEATH FITS PERFECTLY NOW WITH NO MOVEMENT. SO IF YOU HAVE OTHER AXES THAT ARE 'SIMILAR' SIZES TO RAYS SHEATHS, YOU CANNOT MAKE THEM SMALLER BUT I PROVED IT'S POSSIBLE TO SHRINK THE GAP & TIGHTEN THEM UP. I CANNOT FAULT IT. I LEAVE THE LEATHER IN A WARM PLACE TO LET THE CREAM SINK IN OR I HAVE USED A HEAT GUN FROM A DISTANCE QUICKLY PASSING OVER. IF YOU ARE UNSURE USE A HAIRDRYER AS IT SAFER & LESS AGGRESSIVE. I FOUND IT HAS REALLY IMPROVED THE WATER RESISTANCE OF MY LEATHER ITEMS & HELPS BOILED LINESEED OIL SOAK INTO AXE HANDLES WHEN DRESSING AFTER SCRAPING WITH A SHARP BLADE TO REMOVE SPLINTERS ETC. LOOK AFTER YOUR GEAR & IT WILL LOOK AFTER YOU!

  Neat and simple fit to the axe head in the same style as the small forest cover - compliments the axe nicely with a tidier look than the supplied sheath
