    This a wonderful book for those interested in making a beaded knife sheath. The illustrations are terrific, and an amazing variety of beaded sheaths are shown. Many important construction questions are answered. Photographs include many old time knives.

    Excellent book on making beaded knife sheaths. The best I have found so far. Every aspect is covered in explicit detail with excellent photos and illustrations. With descriptions and patterns typical of many different tribes and regions. Displays the many options for creating your own. I foresee myself referring back to this book constantly.

    This is a very good design and construction manual for making your own Plains Indian Knife Sheathes. The pictures are good sized and easy to understand. This is not a manual on beading though, and most of the sheathes are beaded.
