When working in a woodland coupe, or layering a hedge, or tidying the garden it's useful to have your billhook ready at hand, hanging from your belt.

Before having my own holster I would put my billhook down and then spend half an hour trying to find it under piles of brash! Wearing it at your belt becomes second nature and also reduces the number of times you have to bend down to pick it up.

Hand stitched using tough 5mm thick and natural veg-tanned cowhide. I dye the leather, burnish the edges and finish with natural oils and beeswax.

I design the sheaths so that a billhook can be inserted either way around, so they can be warn on the left or right and used ambidextrously.

The opening has been folded over for extra rigidity, and held in place with strong brass and steel bolts.

I can include an additional pouch for a pruning saw. If choosing this then please let me know which saw you use so I can ensure it fits. The pouch in the photos is designed to fit the Bahco Laplander and Silky Pocket Boy saws.

To ensure that I make a sheath the right size please send me a photo of your billhook (plan view) with a ruler next to it when you've ordered, along with the blade's width and length.

All my products are made by me in my small workshop in the northwest of England, UK. I sometimes have a lot of orders on my waiting list so please allow 2 or 3 weeks for me to make and post it. When you place you're order I'll be in touch soon to let you know when it will be ready. And please feel free to send me an Etsy message if you've any questions or would like something a little different.

Why not add my leather balm to your basket too, to nourish and protect your leather so it last for many more years?

I received my notebook cover a few weeks ago and I'm absolutely delighted. I waited a few weeks to review as I wanted to ensure the quality beforehand; I can now happily say it is exceptionally high. The stitching is neat and hardwearing.The edges have been finished well - there is no roughness. The colour (in terms of saturation, trueness to the website photo and durability) is rich and durable - I've bought items in the past in which the dye has worn in a few weeks or has rubbed off onto other things in my bag. I also asked for a few extras when I was ordering, such as my initials stamped on the strap, a custom size and extra stitching- Tony's made a wonderful job of it. The debossing on the strap is crisp and deep and the custom size fits my day diary perfectly. I'm absolutely delighted with it. Thank you Tony!

A very attractive handmade item. Quality leather and nicely stitched together. Shipped with an A5 hardback sketchbook. I'm using it with my own softback ruled notebook (for which I bought the cover) and it closes and stays flat. Thank you!
