Knife Sheath

Anyone on the forum who makes leather knife sheaths for sale? I have obtained a mini-Kukri and so far have not been able to find anything that will fit its unusual shape. It's blade measures 6.5 inches with a 10 inch overall length.

What I am looking for is one to be worn on the left side with the handle forward. The blade would be pretty much straight in the sheath if that makes a difference. My knife does not have a real pronounced curve.

If you don't find any info here take a look at a good leather site called www.leatherworker.net. They have a lot of good info and people who should be able to help out.

For a knife like that, you may want to find someone that works in kyodex. They could mold-up a hard kyodex sheath that would handle that curve.

That is an option but to me, this knife speaks, leather. Might want to PM IDAHOMIKE as he does good work and very reasonable. Great guy to work with. ....

Be Safe !!!

I second the call for IdahoMike. The work that he's done for me is peerless.
