    Cool good for you, supporting this site just helps everyone out too !

    And posting an image of your knife would be handy to see just what the contours are of your folder, side view as well as a shot down into the frame to see how thick the scales are as well.

    I'm very happy with the one I bought and wouldn't hesitate to try another. I like the looks of those that you posted.

    @Gary W. Graley ,

    It's a 10375 in black laminate (Micarta-ish)

    It measures 4.25" long (sorry, bumped the tape off a bit):

    0.5" wide with almost no swell in the center:

    And is a smidge over 1" from the tallest blade spine to handle edge. Maybe 1/32nd - 1/16th depending on how you hold the tape:

    That help? Need something more specific?

    Thanks again.

    I really like the idea of a vertical, open-top, simple design. By simple, I just mean no pattern, etc. I'm not against any of that but I do like simpler leather.

    Nice knife, the contour looks like it would retain in an open top sheath well.

    @sXePhenomenal, @Peregrin, I have 2 of the Max Capdebarthes sheaths and I too would not hesitate to recommend them. Very well made - vert/horiz carry, nice heavy leather, some good colors offered and different sizes too. These shown are perfect for a stout folder in the 4" closed range. Mine are boring black and natural but do the job perfectly.

    These, not open tops so I did not suggest them as an option this time. GaryG @Gary W. Graley and Dave @Horsewright do those so beautifully.

    So just to kinda give some background, I'm still in "pattern exploration". I'm getting older and I figure I want to try out lots of options to really zero in on what I like. I've done this with other brands, kitchen knives, etc. I want to know that I'm carrying what I really, really like. Now that might mean different likes for different tasks/days but I just enjoy the venture of the discovery and evaluation and decision.

    For that reason, I'm hesitant to commit fully to the Large Stockman. If I was convinced this was a go-to pattern for me then I'd be banging on the doors of @Gary W. Graley and @Horsewright. And that goes for so many of the great suggestions you all have provided and I have saved.

    One thing I have noticed in this little foray is that the Trapper pattern has a hooping bunch of sheath options out there. So, I did the only sensible thing and ordered a Case Trapper. :p

    I also ordered a couple different Case-made sheaths. They're cheap enough to experiment with.

    I genuinely appreciate all the inputs and this isn't over. I just need to drill down on the pattern, and then the carry method and the provider.

    :)
