When buying a sheath for your axe or hatchet, it is important to take some considerations into mind to ensure you end up getting the right fit. If you have an axe that has an unusual shape, then you may have to get a sheath custom-made or make one yourself. Here are some of the features we look at when deciding which sheath for axes we need: Material Helko Werk is a traditional German company that has been leading axe makers since 1844 and is the only brand to have two products on our list. They now have businesses worldwide, including in the USA, and their axe sheaths here have been handmade here too. The Double Bit leather axe sheath is specifically designed for a double-bit axe head, which allows you to have two sharp blades instead of one. Now, place the axe on top of the sheet. Use a marker to outline the axe head onto the duct tape sheet. Make it bigger than the actual axe head to give us some extra room within the sheath. The Review Outdoor Gear Axe Sheath has been specifically made for a particular style and make of axe – the Gransfors Bruks American Felling Axe, which is a larger axe used for cutting down trees and saplings. The reason we include this sheath in our guide is that so many people use this axe and also because it works on similar-sized axes too. This hatchet cover has a strong welt to ensure your edge stays clean and sharp, along with eight adjustment holes for different-sized axe or hatchet heads. Like the RingSun full sheath, the Weaver Arborist is on the budget side and made more for axes that are being used all the time rather than one that gets taken outdoors occasionally or hangs above your fireplace.

The Helko Werk Leather Axe Sheath (Double Bit) is made from high-quality cowhide leather with a vegetable tan to ensure its durability and water/moisture protection. It has a heavy-duty welt (which is the part that protects the sharpened edge) with plated rivets to aid the stitching and prevent the sharp edge from damaging the leather. The sheath itself has a very appealing finish of dark and shiny leather, along with stitching, three rivets, and a strap utilizing a snap button to secure it to your axe head. They are handmade in Spokane, Washington, and use an additional folding technique around the welt construction to ensure your edge stays sharp and clean, and there is no possibility of it cutting any stitching on the sheath, increasing its lifespan.Here are some of the different types of axe sheaths you may come across and a brief explanation of what they are: Splitting Axe Sheath The Helko Werk Leather Hatchet Sheath has been handmade in the US and uses full-grain cowhide that has been tanned and treated to ensure it is durable and moisture resistant. Unlike the double-bit version, the Heko Werk Hatchet sheath is designed for single-bit hatchets only and, as such, is much smaller in size and weight. Splitting axe sheaths are designed for larger, heavier axes’ and axe heads that are used primarily for splitting up tree trunks for firewood. As such, the sheath is larger and wide to compensate for the increased head size. Due to the heavy-duty nature of this style of axe and its head being considerably wide and heavier – an edge protector is most commonly used as opposed to a full head covering. Chopping Axe Sheath A good axe head sheath should cover the whole of the axe head right up past the ‘Cheek’ of the axe to the ‘Throat’ intersection (i.e. where the Handle passes through the Lug and Eye just above the Cheek), and not just up to the ‘Beard’ or ‘Cheek’ as do so many other designs seem to do. Incidentally this intersection point also tends to be the narrowest point of the axe head, which conveniently enables us to contour our sheaths, and closure flap, snugly into this area; thus providing an unsurpassed level of ‘slip & slide’ stability, good overall axe head coverage and most importantly the prevention of accidental sheath removal.

Above is the completed decorative line around the entire sheath. You can further stamp yours, or carve it too. Now I have drawn the top edge of the sheath to connect with the lower end in a nice curve. The shape you decide to draw is up to you at this point, but the above is the fairly typical axe sheath look. Hatchets, throwing axes, and tomahawks are all much smaller than chopping or splitting axe and are primarily designed to be used with one hand. These sheaths are all a little smaller than a regular axe sheath but also come in a range of sizes for the same style. Hatchet sheats often have a belt loop so that you can keep them close. A sharp axe will only stay sharp if the edge is protected, we offer a great leather sheath for the job.Designed primarily for gardeners and arborists who use their axe a lot, you can use this sheath on many different shapes and sized axes and hatchets. It will work on blade lengths up to 5 3/8 inches, and the adjustable strap means you get a secure fit. It will even work on some more unusual types of the axe. For hole punching – I use the typical revolving punch. The kind with a removable plate below makes it a bit nicer as that’s what will wear out first. I tend to replace these after several years of service. Go ahead and punch the hole at a size jsut big enough for the rivet to poke through. Whilst the quality and craftsmanship of the Gransfors Axes is exceptional, placing Gransfors Bruks as one of the world leaders of fine quality axes, it cannot, unfortunately, be said of the Axe Sheaths that are supplied with these axes. Since we consider Gransfors Bruks axes to be such a superior product, we thought that they deserved a superior Axe Head Sheath to complement them. VERDICT: The quality craftsmanship of the Helko Werk Leather Axe Sheath cannot be understated and is all you need to protect the sharp edge of your axe. It is a very simple design that seems to work well for most people and isn’t easily damaged. If you want a rugged but supple leather sheath that will fit most axes, then give this one a look.

The stitch groove is made starting on the right hand side, 1/8 inch from the top edge, al the way around to about 1/8 inch from the center of the sheath where it will fold. That’s it! In this article, I am going to explain how to make an axe sheath with duct tape. It’s a pretty straightforward method and shouldn’t take too long to finish. So, let’s start making a sheath for that beautiful axe of yours. How to Make an Axe Sheath with Duct Tape: Step-By-Step The Tourbon Vintage Leather Axe Sheath is a simplistic design for medium-sized hatchets. It is made from vintage leather and is held together with closely spaced rivets without any support stitching. We really like the shape of this axe cover as well as the color, and if you are as proud of your axes as we are, then this is a really nice accessory.If you choose to make your own, you need to ensure the leather is of high quality, your stitches or rivets are long-lasting, you have an easy opening system, and you pay particular attention to the hidden welt – as this part is the most important for your edge. You could also use cardboard wrapped in waterproof paper for a super cheap version, or even old clothes wrapped around a welt – but these won’t last that long in the elements. Why Do You Need an Axe Sheath? The carving axes come sharp and ready to use but eventually you will need to sharpen it yourself. This video shows the method we use. In just about every case where you see a cheap sheath, you will also see that rivets have been extensively or exclusively used. They are used to not only reduce production time and costs, thus avoiding the need for the sheath to be stitched, but also to avoid adding a Welt. Rivets used as makeshift Welts enable the sheath to remain relatively safe for the handler because they act as a solid barrier preventing the handler from being cut should the tool ever cut through the sheath at the joint. Another point of consideration is that rivets will, over time, tend to damage the cutting edge as the leather loosens exposing the cutting edge to the rivets whilst being bounced around in normal use. The primary reason you need an axe sheath is to protect the axe head, which is made from metal, from moisture, dirt, and grime. Additionally, a well-made sheath will also have a strong welt, which will protect your sharp edge from being chipped or dulled accidentally.

VERDICT: The Hide and Drinks Hatchet Holster is one of our personal favorites, and the leather itself will take on different hues over time, which looks great. The full head covering and the attachment to a belt ensure your hatchet is safe and secure as well as accessible with one hand. If this is the style you are after then, we certainly recommend this as one of the best sheaths for axes and hatchets.

Use the same steps to make another sheet from your duct tape. Place the sheet you made before on top of this one. Use the scissors to cut it into the same shape. Now you have two similar axe sheath patterns made of duct tape. Step 4: Join the Two Pieces All of our handmade leather goods come with a lifetime unconditional guarantee on workmanship, which means that you can be sure that it will be made to very highest standard. Most all-purpose or general axes have a thinner and smaller axe head than a splitter to ensure it has the right balance of heaviness and practicality to use for a variety of things. This is where you will find the largest range of axe sheaths available, from full coverage to just a blade protector with a strap. Double Bit Axe Sheath
