    Knife Sheaths..

    For my 40th (still so weird to say) Kristen bought me. Anew work knife. Its a 1960's USA Made, Case. Very cool, mealssed up enough that I'm not scared to work it pretty hard .

    The sheath it came with is junk. It made it about three weeks at work and that was that. The knife cut the ties that holds it together and the metal button is eating the wooden handle.

    It's 5x1 blade at its widest and j need to find a sheath that will hold up to working the farm. I've googled, Amazon'ed, looked local.. no luck.

    Any advice?

    Find a local leather worker to make you one. I had one made for my first hunting knife and it's lasted 35 years and counting.

      Interesting..

      I'll look around. I know it was 35 years ago, but any idea roughly what that costs? I have no idea what that would entail to make it.

            Kydex is easy to work with as well.

              The up side to that is j can try and make it in a way that will work well for my job. The down side is I don't work with leather so it may turn out horrific haha
              Ill try it. I have more than one fixed blade that needs a sheath so....


              Oh... And those are some dope looking knives. What are they?

                I would recommend leather if you have a softer handle material. Kydex is nice for synthetic handles as it wears better. Leather is pretty forgiving but takes on marks easily. It's cheap to give it a go. Leather, waxed string and glue is all you need... you can go further, dye, burnishing, buttons, imprints etc...there are pletty of vids n ideas.
                thanks, i actually made those for my groomsmen. Just good old general camp knives out of 1095 steel with one handle out of leopard wood and two out of zebra wood.

                  I do enjoy a good knife. However, 6, what sort of things do you do with such a beast of a knife? (If I may ask)

                    Check out etsy.com I got a sheath from the website for my nephew to replace the leatherette one that came with his bushcraft knife.

                      I'm a farmer (kinda, I'm a maintenance manager on a horse breeding farm), I do a lot with it.

                      It cuts the strings on hay bales, it opens bags of salt in the winter, opens shavings pallets, opens shavings bags, opens horse waterer tops, it can pry open stuck gate latch clips, removes paint from buried fence screws, removes jagged fence splinters that could get into horses..... out in the pasture it could be a wire striper, pry bar, screwdriver, hammer, whatever it needs to be.

                      All purpose tool.

                      Edit: this morning it was a tool to cut out the broken ends of the bleach tank lines in the pump house..
