Bought this for a 2 1/2lb Kelly flint edge cruiser. The head had barely been sharpened and was close to original condition so it was slightly larger than what other heads are commonly found. It measured 8 5/8" x 4 3/8" so it is a very snug fit, but it did fit and will only loosen up more over time. As mentioned by others, I dyed it and used Obenaufs and it turned out great. I also have the larger version of this sheath for a 3 lb Kelly flint edge and it was also a good fit and well made.
Very well made. Hit it with dye and obenaufs the hell out of it and it supples up nice.
Having four Cruisers of various makers I wanted a good reliable Mask for transporting them. After this Mask arrived I found that item! All four of my Axes will fit this Cover. Some are tighter than others but the snaps do close and I 'm sure with time and wear the leather will give some more. I am overall very pleased with this Mask. I would like to see a heavier welt but this works fine as is. Will be buying a few more shortly! I have purchased various hafts from Beaver Tooth and so far they have been very good and now I'll be watching the Mask or Sheath more closely!
The sheath exceeded my expectations, and fit my collins cruiser like a glove. As a fellow Axe Junkie, Beaver Tooth sets the bar for quality axe handles and now sheaths too!
Beaver Tooth is about the only place to get a well constructed cruiser sheath. This one did not disappoint and went great with a Kelly cruiser.
