Ray Mears Leather Knife Sheath - Neck


Weight: 114 g         5 reviews
The beautiful Ray Mears Leather Knife Sheath has been hand-made from start to finish, and the finished article truly reflects the workmanship that has gone into it. This particular model features an integrated slit, allowing you to attach your own cord so that the sheath can be worn slung around your neck. An additional pocket is attached to the sheath to house your Fire Stick. This sheath is a durable, high-quality product which is sure to keep your knife protected and safely concealed.

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bed slightly into the welt and also provide a fit in the handle section while still allowing the knife to be smoothly withdrawn.

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

For an insight into Ray's ethos on our leather goods, please view our Leather Goods page.

This sheath is designed to fit The Ray Mears Bushcraft Knife. If you are looking to purchase a neck sheath to fit a knife bought from us before 2017 please contact the office.

Please note that this sheath will not fit the WK1 Woodlore Knife made by Alan Wood. If you wish to purchase a sheath for this knife, please contact us for further details. Will this sheath fit my knife?

  After owning several pieces of Woodlore leather and canvas goods, I thought a second sheath for my knife would be a nice addition to my collection. The quality in the craftsmanship is second to none. Becky truly is a master of leather. Being for a SWC Knife the sheath was a bespoke piece and arrived a little over a week after ordering which is unbelievable for the quality of the item. A strong, sturdy and robust sheath that will last for years. Thank you to Woodlore and the team for such an amazing item.

  A very handy way of carrying my knife for areas where the knife needs to be less conspicuous than belt carry. The cordage sling and wrap is also handy to have with sufficient length for the bow drill - very simple to set up and comfortable to wear.

  I absolutely love this sheath and style of carry. I do a lot of trekking and foraging with a pack on and this allows me to keep my knife close at hand. Ray really did a great job designing it!

  Excellent quality sheath! Works well for over-the-shoulder, underarm carry. May become my primary sheath for this knife.

  The neck sheath arrived quickly. It is extremely high quality in construction and material, better than expected. As with all my previous Woodlore purchases, your products provide excellent value and quality. Fits the bushcraft knife perfectly. My compliments to the craftsperson who made the sheath and to Woodlore for offering high quality useful outdoor products.
