    Thanks guys! I appreciate the feed back.

    I actually used every inch of the leather I had. Like the sleeves for the Tanaka Nakiri and Takamura 210 are actually the end pieces of the briefcase. The front flap was the bags front flap as well. The two holes are where the buttons used to be and the imprint in the middle is where the lock was. I added the front piece just to make the roll fold better and as a bonus it ended up giving the design a more rugged look.

    It was a lot of fun to do and learn to work with leather. Maybe there'll be a sequel at some point.

    There were two ideas I wanted. the roll should be as flat and small as possible and the blades would have their own sheaths built in.

    Love the look! And seems very functional.

    What are the studs/rivets made of? Metal? If so, does the edge of the blade hit them when you're putting the knives in their sleeves?

    Thanks!

    The rivets are metal, but they are pressed so tight into the leather that not even the knives edges are thin enough to fit far enough to hit them.

    Good to hear. You had me a bit worried, but I was hoping they were tight enough on the leather, as you said.
