Hi everyone!

Well, this is a pretty random question.  I bought my boyfriend a Japanese hand axe for Christmas this year (http://www.garrettwade.com/japanese-hand-axe/p/11P23.06/). 

I usually make him something sweet and crafty, so I thought I would make him a sheath to go along with it.  You know, a covering to prevent the axe from cutting you while you're walking around (looks like this: http://www.estwing.com/product.php?product_id=1700)

I was wondering if anyone happens to have any experience with this sort of thing, specifically with alternatives to leather (we're vegan).  I guess I could find some used leather material at goodwill if necessary.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

You can use an artificial leather, like a vegan leather, or a plastic leather.

Maybe using some sort of foam padding in between layers would make a nice touch, as well as snap button.
