    been working on something for a friend of a friend. It’s been phone tag and text game but got one wedge pouch made. Working on second now. 2 12” wedges in one pouch, a 12 and an 8 in second. Along with tape holder out of fairly thick leather to keep from beating him to smithereens.
    Not sure if belt will be saddle skirting or Buckingham buffalo weave nylon webbing.


    Will post photos as it progresses.

    I was just going to create a thread for this type of stuff, perfect timing. I’m not happy with my wedge pouch. Subbed

    Nice pouches. I have found a few custom ones on eBay and ETSY, but they are high! I used to some leather work and sewing myself and thought of making my own. These pouches on the market now are junk.

    How long are your wedges? This pouch is too long! If you or @Dustin4185 can use a 12” double wedge pouch it’s yours.

    I use 10’s unfortunately, otherwise I’d gladly take it off your hands. The cheap pouch I have is made for 12’s and the 10’s go too deep making it difficult to get them out with gloves on. I wish I could find one that could carry 3 10’s and a 6 in separate pouches.

    I have thought about the aluminum ones from Grizzly. They are the ones that make the aluminum axe scabbard as well.

    @XP_Slinger I would like to make them that way but I’m using an old singer patcher. It won’t see that thick.
    @Dustin4185 i actually recommended he go that way for the whole setup being cheaper and probably more durable. He opted for the handmade leather. Wants smooth out I would personally gonrough out though.

    Two ways I’ll set up my wedge pouch and belt, one is 6 12’s & a 15 the other I had an aluminum wedge beater with 10’s
