I have always really liked knives and carried one of some sort for as long as I can remember. The price depends on what you want, size of the knife, and material used (cowhide, exotic, horsehide, etc.). Below are a few photos showing some of the sheaths I have made in the past. If you are interested or have any questions about a knife sheath or any other item below please feel free to contact us and we can discuss it.
Dangler Style Bushcraft Sheaths:
The edge of the dangler sheaths in the photos were left unfinished and treated with a honing compound to be used as a strop in the field without having to carry extra gear. That is why they look green.
Belt Pouch for Folding Knife:
This is shown with a snap tunnel loop but can also be made with a sewn tunnel loop.
This sheath is made for an old Western 49 bowie. It is a dangler style that uses a stainless steel D ring and Pull-the-DOT snap loop to secure it to the belt. The dangler loop is removable.
A couple of natural sheaths made from some really nice grained horsehide. One is made for pocket carry and the other is a dangler style. The dangler uses Pull-the-DOT snaps for easy on and off and also for removal of the D ring. It can also be made with a sewn loop if preferred. These beautiful knives were made by John Kiedaisch at JK Handmade Knives. The large one is a Kephart HD and the small one is a pocket Kephart.
Here is another belt style sheath that uses a Pull-the-DOT snap loop for belt attachment and a flap with snap for added retention. It can be made with a sewn tunnel loop as well. The knife in the photos is called the Appalachia Special made by John Kiedaisch of JK Handmade Knives and designed by me. I will be keeping a few of these knives in stock for sale as well as a scaled down pocket version on the Handmade Knives page.
Here are a couple more sheaths made from some nice grained horsehide and dyed light brown. The top one is another dangler and the bottom sheath is made to be worn cross draw. These beautiful hand forged knives were made by Matt Lesniewski of ML Knives.
This is a belt style sheath made for a large camp knife. It is made from two layers of leather. The lining is 7 - 8 oz. veg. tanned leather to make it rigid and the outer layer is 5 - 6 oz. oil tanned leather. I like the rustic look of the oil tanned leather and it beads water really well. The sheath has a simple snap tunnel loop using a Pull-the-DOT snap. The knife in the photo is a beautiful hand forged Hudson Bay camp knife made by Matt Lesniewski of ML Knives.
This is a possibles bag I made from oil tanned leather which beads water well to help protect your gear. These bags are great for hunting or hiking easily allowing you to carry a few extra essentials. I normally use my possibles bag to carry a small folding knife, fire kit, etc. when I am out in the woods. The strap is made from 7 - 8 oz. vegetable tanned leather that has been oiled. It is attached with leather ties so that it can easily be removed or adjusted. This bag has a small leather pocket inside and uses a leather button for closure. It is approximately 8" tall x 9" wide.
Here are a couple of different axe sheaths I have made. The first one is a belt sheath made for a Gransfors Bruks Mini Hatchet. It has a fire steel loop and uses a Pull-the-DOT snap for the belt loop and to secure the hatchet.
This sheath was made for a Council Tool Boy's Axe. While it is a little bit big for belt carry I went ahead and added a leather loop and D ring to the back which could be used to help strap it to a pack or to hang it up in camp.
The knife sheath below was made for me as a gift by a friend of mine, Sandy Morrissey. Sandy is a master leather craftsman who has been working with leather for 70+ years and specializes in knife sheaths. He does not have a website but I have listed his contact information below. Please feel free to contact him for a beautiful one of a kind knife sheath. His prices are more than fair and I believe the photos below speak for themselves. You can also search his name on the web to see many beautiful photos of his work. he is pretty well known in the knife world.
