Many of the leather sheaths pictured below can be designed and built to fit your favorite knife. Since all of our sheaths are wet molded around the exact blade we will need your knife for a few days to draw up the design and mold the sheath. We maintain a money back guarantee, even for our custom sheaths. If you are not satisfied for any reason simply return the sheath and we will refund your money with no questions asked. We also build the occasional holster for our return customers and a few of the more popular models are pictured here along with some totally custom pieces created from scratch.
