I want to make covers—sheaths, I guess—for some adzes, large chisels, and a hatchet. I have read online that leather is not good for metal—speeds up rust and corrosion due to chemicals used in the tanning process.

Is this true?

What other materials can you recommend for sheaths? I’ve used canvas for a drawknife sheath, but the heaviest canvas may not stand up to a heavier blade’s impact as the tool shifts around in my carrying bag.

Thank you for your recommendations.

In regard to material for tool covers—I have discovered marine vinyl. It’s not cheap, but it’s good. I have found it on sale, as scraps, at a couple of different fabric stores. It is a bit hard to sew, but not excessively difficult.
I recommend it.
