Repairing an antique... letter opener?

Many things were made from leather in the past. Often we have special items that have been passed down to us, but have never really been taken care of. Many cherished but uncared for items come our way. In this case, we  were asked to repair the leather sheath of a dagger (ok, it was a little smaller than a dagger, but YOU can't tell from the photo, can you?).  Feel free to send pictures of any items that might need some help.

Notice the crack across the original.

Our replacement

Poor thing. But now it is back in shape.
