    Great looking knife and sheath! I'll be making my first soon too. Something about the end of those traditional scandi sheaths that's so inviting.

    No. A Scandi sheath is sewn in the rear. No need to protect the stitching fob the edge which is the purpose of a welt.
    If you leave just enough space ahead of the edge so it doesn't cut into the leather, the tight fitting Scandi sheath needs no welt. If you want some (unnecessary/extra) feature to add some security ahead of the edge a wooden insert or semi-wooden/antler sheath is the way to go.
    However this sheath style is in use in Scandinavia since Viking ages and has proven perfectly reliable.

    the sharper your knife - the easier your life!
