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
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bed slightly into the welt and also provide a fit in the handle section while still allowing the knife to be smoothly withdrawn.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 two 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.
