    I saw a video where the sheath was immersed in a bath of stain and hung to dry so I gave it a try. Pretty straightforward and the coverage was good but the resulting sheath was stiff and hard. Conditioning helped a bit but I wonder if I was using the wrong type of stain to begin with (I was using an Eco-Flo water base). Any ideas?

    Regards

    I use Fiebing's dyes and the leather hardens up after application as well.
