The Ray Mears Morakniv Companion Heavy Duty Knife Sheath is a handmade leather sheath designed to house the Morakniv Companion Heavy Duty Knife. Following numerous requests from our customers, we recently made the decision to produce this custom leather alternative to the plastic sheath that is typically supplied with this knife.

Giving consideration to the excellent value of the Morakniv Heavy Duty Knife, we have made every effort to make this sheath as affordable as possible. As such, the design has been pared back to a more basic belt sheath, while still being made to the high standards you would expect from any of our leather goods. Each sheath has been left undyed, allowing the natural beauty of the leather to shine through. The resulting pale skin-tone of the leather is then darkened by the application of an oil/wax mixture during the final process of production, giving a multi-tonal effect which is darker at the edges of the sheath. This leather will also tan like skin with exposure to light and burnish with use and handling.

Many knife sheaths may look similar on the outside, but what makes a sheath do the job safely and securely is what is on the inside. The sheath must fit the knife in all particulars to prevent movement by allowing the blade to bed slightly into the welt and also provide a fit in the handle section while still allowing the knife to be smoothly withdrawn. The Ray Mears Morakniv Sheath has been designed with all of these factors in mind to provide a safe and secure fit, including generous welt that protects the stitching inside the sheath and negates the need for any rivets, which can be damaging to the blade. All stitching is done by hand in a contrasting brown braided thread and the edges are bevelled and burnished for comfortable handling.

All of our leather goods are hand-made in England by Becky Brewster, a craftswoman with over three decades of experience. All leathers are vegetable tanned with full, natural grain, and our knife sheaths are treated to harden them and provide a penetrating wax finish.

  Beautifully made piece of kit this, nice thick leather and lovely stitching. Hangs comfortably from your belt and is just nice to look at. Highly recommend.

  Well made, quality leather and excellent stitching, the finish is superb. My Morakniv knife is a perfect secure fit it doesn’t move about in the sheath. Very happy with the product and for the quality it is a good price.

  Really pleased with this. Seems really well made. The absolute best thing is the fact that a left-handed version is available. It's excellent that the non right-handed bushcrafters out there don't have to make do with a sheath that doesn't work for them so well if they wear it on the left. Too many places only offer right handed versions of things that really aren't so good to use left-handed - thank you Woodlore.

  The knife sheath is extremely well made and fits the knife perfectly. It can be easily overdyed if necessary, but it has a beautiful honey colour (a bit darker than the picture) which will weather and deepen with use. The welt is at least 3mm thick but the rest of the sheath is of a thinner leather, perhaps 2.5mm, although this doesn't affect functionality. Would recommend.

  This is a great addition to the Mora knife. Quality leather and workmanship make it worth every penny.

  With 8 months of use it's got a little more character. Yes it's twice the price of a new HD Mora, but in my opinion it's money well spent. The plastic sheath the knife comes with is practical, but looks horrible and rattles. This sheath fits the knife extremely well. It has a 'deep carry' and the knife just can't fall out as it's held very firmly. It's beautifully made and finished, and the belt loop is carefully shaped so that it rotates just slightly, to not dig in when you sit down. There's a very small hole in the point of the sheath which I've widened slightly with a skewer to let water drain more easily, and let air in. Otherwise build quality it top notch. Frankly I think it's a bargain for the quality of craft and work that's gone into it for the price. I've given mine a few coats of leather waterproofing (nikwax) to help protect it. I think the sheath will outlast a few Moras. Hopefully my son will inherit it. So for those on a budget, or still learning the 'craft', I think this is a great way to go, in that, if you trash/break/ruin/lose/melt/get the knife stuck in a bear, you've still got a great, comfortable, good-looking and practical sheath. A new knife is then cheap to replace. I'm looking forward to this sheath growing in character with use. It's one of those possessions that is a joy to own and use, and the attachment only grows stronger with time (and it smells great!)

  This is a high quality well made and durable sheath that will easily tolerate lots of action. There's a good thick welt of leather against which the blade edge bears when sheathed. The welt has been well finished at its outside edge, it's smoothed and polished, in keeping with the high quality previously mentioned. The fit and grip of the inserted knife is how it should be at this stage, it will loosen with use no doubt. The colour is as it shows on my PC screen and its surface is satin. If you're concerned about the colour or its tendancy to stain then application of regular leather treatments will both darken and protect it. I've chosen to treat mine with Neatsfoot Oil which accelerates the softening process also. 'You get what you pay for ' is a well used phrase; this definitely qualifies and I recommend it without difficulty. Finally, it seems useable with Mora's regular Companion also but the fit for Mora's high end 'Garberg' was less satisfactory than other aftermarket sheaths I've tried. Useful info if you have a Garberg Multimount sheath system and were considering this as a secondary option.

  Well made and holds the knife secure but not as good quality as the Ray Mears Bushcraft Knife sheath.
