Sheath for a machete

Here's my latest creation, a sheath for a small machete. I made it without the machete, I used a few pics and measurements provided by the customer. I used this "straight" customer pic for the shape, then I deformed it a little to fit the measurements:
It's made from 2 mm black shoulder leather except for the fastening strap, made for regular 4 mm bridle leather.

I hate button-fastening for many reasons... so I decided for this more original one. It can be both opened or closed using two fingers. Here's a self-explaining fastening sequence:

The leather lace is used to add further security, during long movements or such: simply wrap it around the machete's handle and tie a knot.
