Hawk Studio – Makes Me Quiver


Actually Hawk Studio made a child’s quiver is more accurate.

The leather is 9/10 oz veg. tanned cowhide.  It has a belt attachment so that it can be worn across the back.

It is dyed using a block dye technique which creates the mottled look of the leather.

You can see the brand marks in the leather even after the dying process.  This poor cow was branded three times. There is also an applique added to the throat of the quiver and a welting at the bottom.

This piece is selling for $75.00

Chip also finished some knife sheaths this week.  One was for one of my blades.

He did a beautiful encasing of the hilt in leather for me.

The sheath is 9/10 oz. cowhide again using a block dye in a darker brown.  The handle wrap is a 5/6 oz cowhide.

The price for a similar sheath (assuming a 10 inch blade like mine) with a similar handle wrap is $100.00.  That would include a braided peace tie but not the frog.

Chip also completed a sheath for one of his blades, which is a bit curvier than mine.

This sheath was a bit more complicated because it had to match the shape of the blade yet allow for it to be inserted and withdrawn from the sheath without running into edges.

The shape is so distinctive that Chip brought attention to it by adding the leather applique at the tip.

The price for a similar sheath with a braided peace tie would be $95.00.  Obviously these are made to order as it is the shape of the blade which determines how the sheath is constructed.

So there we have it – a well dressed family of sheaths.

If only he was able to devote himself full-time to his craft, there would be even more to show you.  Considering this was done in between caring for the boys full time, working on the barn and keeping the household afloat I think it is pretty impressive.  I can’t wait to see what he comes up with for next week.

    Hello, I am interested in the quiver you show on this page: https://apolishgranddaughter.wordpress.com/2011/07/21/hawk-studio-makes-me-quiver/

    It says that it is a child’s quiver, but it looks like a full-sized version. Can you let me know the length of the quiver? I like the color, pattern of the quiver, and look of this leather, but not necessarily needing the brands (poor cow, as you said). 🙂 You seem to have nice craftsmanship with your work!

    Is this something that you already have in stock, ready-made?

    I did not see any way to order, or phone. Bummer.

    Thank you, in advance.
