Sheath for Dad's Knife

I've eventually managed to get around to dropping into the leather supplier and buying some veg tanned stock, and as I promised my father a long, long time ago, the very first thing I made would be a sheath for knife I made him last year.
I told him I was thinking about incorporating a holder for his firesteel and then when I actually started cutting up, punching holes, gluing, sewing and wet forming the leather I somehow managed to completely forget this idea. So I ended up making a neck sheath just for the firesteel and to be honest, I think this actually looks better than having it on the knife sheath.
