This is a beautiful back mounted knife sheath made from 8-9 oz veg-tan leather. The interior is lined with pig skin for both blade preservation and sturdy retention. A welt was added for extra protection for the blade and its surroundings. All three pieces are cemented and hand stitched with waxed linen threading for a smart hold. The face of the sheath has a hand tooled Strong Horse logo. Finally, the leather is stained with an eco-friendly mahogany dye and finished with a professional clear coat. This is a great piece to show off in your daily life.

The final product was more impressive than what i imagined. This knife sheath will last a lifetime! I will go to Erland Reyna for future leatherwork needs. Beautiful craftsmanship!
Very happy with maker and finished product. Will use again, I'm sure.
This has to be one of the best purchases I've made in a long time. Strong horse is a pleasure to deal with and an excellent craftsman. Through email we constructed a custom sheath for my tops knife that is as brilliant as the knife is. Strong horse cares deeply to create a product that is perfect for his customer. This is obvious to me. Can't beat his rates either for what you get. I will be doing business with him again.
The sheath is gorgeous!
I ordered the Buck Reaper knife with a Viper textured handle from Amazon and had trouble finding the kind of leather sheath that was durable, unique, and handmade in the USA. I stumbled around various websites and Facebook pages until I found Strong Horse Leather.
I explained what I wanted, and Erland communicated in detail what he provided. I saw pictures of a similar sheath with excellent craftsmanship and liked what I saw. The price was reasonable, so I gave him a chance. This is the first time I've ever used Custommade or anything like it, so I was nervous at first. The entire experience was excellent, and I was reminded why contracting with an individual artist is so much more rewarding than a faceless corporation that mass produces leather products.
When the product was finished, delivery was prompt. It is exactly like the pictures showed, very fine detailed engraving and color, excellent stitching (my favorite part). It is very very good. I have already recommended Strong Horse to my friends, and you will to yours as well.
