Leathercraft

All of my sheaths are hand made and custom fit to each individual knife. I work with both leather and Kydex.  See my Kydex page for details and pricing regarding thermoplastic sheath work.

My leather sheaths are made from thick, top grade Harmon Oak vegetable tanned leather that I hand select at Springfield Leather and are stitched by hand using a saddle stitch for improved strength, durability, and serviceability. Harmon Oak leather is the highest quality tooling leather availible in the world.  Their tanning processes take about 3 times longer than what imported vegetable tanned leather uses which can be sourced at places like Tandy, Hobby Lobby, etc.  This results in their product being a little more expensive, but it results in leather that is consistently more dense at a given thickness so it is more tough and less prone to stretching, that takes dyes more evenly, and that takes stamping/tooling more cleanly and holds the sharpness of stamping better.  The end result is a higher quality sheath in all regards.  My leather sheaths are custom fit to each individual knife and are not simply generic pouches that happen to hold the blade. I offer a variety of tooling options, patterns, colors, stitching options, and belt loop options.  Properly made leather sheaths take time to complete and will increase the overall build time of your custom knife order but are worth the wait.
