One piece of rawhide cut in U shape, folded over and stitched with sinew on outer edge; with tanned hide loop at top and four (4) tanned hide ties attached along the outer edge. Recto is yellow overall with design on perimeter echoing the shape of case in blue background with repeating red and yellow diamonds outlined with faint black line. Center is two blocks of designs - upper and lower sections. Rectangle with four corners in an angle design of stacked lines in blue, red, yellow green at center of this is yellow background with square cross in middle same colors - again all outlined in fine black. Bottom section is yellow background with three vertically stacked squares - large to small- in green, red, blue outlined in black.
Verso also has design painted - which much more typical of Sioux people in creation of parfleche knife sheaths than other groups. Plain parfleche with blue line running along the shape of the case, and doubling on the outside rounded corner with five (5) green hashes between the two blue lines.
Six (6) lines running horizontally across the center - all of this outlined in fine black lines. Each of the sections in the center delineated by the blue horizontal lines has two short green horizontal short in the center.
