Back and forth, this week it is dyeing craftsman axe sheath

I often follow common threads, but rarely is there a need to only prescribe to one aesthetic.

for tool leather i find myself going back and forth from letting the leather color naturally 
dyeing in the construction.

currently i am in the dyeing mode. one thing is for certain and that is dyed leather blends in better with the dirt and grime that it weathers through.

i have rehung my craftsman single bit and thought a new sheath was in order.
the dye has been applied before the rivets and snaps.
choosing to dye the sheath before rivets and snaps rather than going all natural.
i am looking forward to seeing the axe completely finished.
maybe by this weekend.
