Leather Knife Sheaths for Sale

Stonestreet Leather has the highest quality knife sheaths. The top-quality sheath is an accessory that can be used to carry extra magazines, a flashlight or your cell phone.

There are many different types, shapes and sizes of leather knife sheaths and knife pouches. Stonestreet Leather is beginning by focusing on portable 'attach to the belt' knife sheaths and pouches. Our first type is the pocket knife pouch. It features a sleek design that loops right onto your belt for ease of access and portability.

The pocket knife pouch does not have a closure, instead it is constructed so that the knife slides in comfortably, but secure enough that it won't fall out. Available in a variety of colors and finishes, this sheath is also available for small knives or large pocket knives. The stitch line distances are either smaller or larger depending on the size of pocket knives you own.

The second type of knife sheath is a similar knife pouch that allows you to secure it to a belt but it also features a snap closure making sure that your knife never falls out. Either type of sheath is fully customizable with personalized laser engraving available.

Also Available: Knife Sheath Patterns

Knife sheath patterns are super useful for any leather crafter wanting to make a leather sheath or pouch. Wether you are a beginner or seasoned pro, using a sheath pattern allows anyone to accurately construct their very own sheath.

Patterns can come as pdf's or acrylic templates. Pdf's are great because you can print them off, spray them with a little adhesive, adhere to the leather and just cut directly over the lines of the pattern. When you are done, just remove the paper and you have a perfectly cut out piece of the project. Another favorite tool of leather crafters are laser cut acrylic templates.

Acrylic patterns/templates are placed on top of the leather and held down as the crafter cuts around the borders.

Acrylic templates are great for a few reasons:

  • Knife sheath projects in particular because most sheaths have some curved lines that can be very tricky to cut out of leather using only paper patterns.
  • Using acrylic templates gives you a solid border to cut around, making the process much more manageable and accurate especially for beginner leather crafters.
  • In addition to all those acrylic template benefits, the best part may be that you can re-use the template over and over again without having to worry about wasting paper or ink.

This is great if you have a large number of sheaths to make. Acrylic templates for all kind of leather projects are a vital part of any leather crafters arsenal.

Knife Sheath FAQs

  • Do leather sheaths dull knives?

  • A leather sheath might be soft, good-looking, and easy to handle, but it has its cons just like any other knife sheath. Leather sheath has the tendency to absorb moisture very quickly which causes it to rot. This rotting potentially locks in the moisture, leading to dulling of the knife. However, you can use treated leather which does not absorb moisture and prevents the knife from getting dull.

  • How much is a custom leather sheath?

  • The cost of a custom leather sheath depends on various factors, such as the knife’s size, material used, and the design. Smaller leather sheaths will cost less than the bigger leather sheaths, but it will definitely cost a lot if it’s made out of an expensive leather and a unique design. The prices can range from a few dollars to above $200.
