Kydex and Sheepskin Lined Sheath, ...say what? I know, here I go again. I was contacted by a customer in California that had just purchased a Busse Combat Sarge 7. Now, as this is a $400.00 plus dollar knife the customer wanted a really nice piece of leather to show it off with, plus a way to keep it very well protected. Hence a combination leather, kydex and sheepskined lined piece of work.
The outer leather shell of the sheath is constructed of 4-5 oz. Horsehide that has been dyed a medium cognac brown and is finished with Atom Wax. There is an attached loop for a Swedish Firesteel Army model. The belt loop is designed for a high hip carry on the right side or can be used for a left side cross draw. The edges have been hand burnished to a very high polish. Inside the sheath is a 2mm Kydex shell that is lined with sheep skin. The sheepskin is impregnated with renwax to condition the blade as drawn and to allow for a completely silent draw. The Kydex has been molded to create an indent at the base of the knife handle to firmly hold the knife in place. Simple huh. Nope, complicated to make but beautiful in its execution. This kydex lining design can be created for any sheath knife. The indent in the kydex to secure the knife tighter in the sheath totally depends on the knife design itself. However, many forms of attachment can be had so don't feel left out if an indent wont work with your particular blade. Call me, we'll chat about it. DH

Dave was fantastic to work with and provided timely communication every step of the way until the sheath was completed. The sheath itself is truly a work of art...Unbelievable craftsmanship - you REALLY do get what you pay for here. A little pricey? yes, but WELL worth it. Liked it so much that I will be working with Dave again soon to make this sheath for another knife. I can only speak for his knife sheaths, but I am sure all his leather work is exceptional - truly a masterclass in design and execution. Thanks again Dave!!
