where could I look for a kit for my husband to make a leather wrapped handle for a hunting knife?

My hubby wants to re-wrap an old hunting knife that had belonged to his father. I've looked on the web but nothing for leather, only wood or bone...

I've been making and restoring knives for the better part of 25 years and I have to say, I have yet to see a real "leather-wrapped" grip on a knife. What most folks refer to as "leather-wrapped" is in fact stacked leather made up of a dozen or so leather disks.

Tell your hubby to head to Ebay and look for "tooling leather" and get about a square foot or so. It's not expensive. He'll then have to use one of the original spacers (leather disks) as a pattern and hand cut each one with an Xacto knife. Just cut the inside to match the old leather or the knife....leave the outside rough shaped. Once he has them stacked thick enough, use a Dremel or a sanding block to shape the outsides of the disks down. use finer and finer grits just like if you were doing wood and finish with some wax.
