    Just like it says in the title, show us your favorite sheaths that haul your Becker(s) around with, and tell us a little about them.

    For me, my faves are the ones I make myself. I didn't like most of what I saw out there and wanted something different. After seeing where a guy mentioned using standoffs to somehow keep the two halves separate, I had to give it a shot and see if I could pull it off. Have been incorporating it into most of my sheaths ever since. The most recent one is for my BK-15, and the furthest I have taken the idea. It can be broken down completely for cleaning or adjustment, and is truly reversible in every regard. Plus I love the way it looks.





    So, what carries your favorite Becker knives?

    That's a brilliant idea, I like it.
    I have two out of four of my Beckers in 710 custom sheaths. The 4 and 7 will eventually get a custom treatment sooner or later.

    I have homemade kydex sheaths for my 15 and 16, but my favorite is this Sharpshooter. Wet molded to my 16 with a homemade dangler.

    I happen to be the guy who bought JD's (710) very first sale-offered sheath for the freshly-minted BK4, Beckerhead Edition Machax several years back, and it's still one of my faves.


    My most-recent sheath-purchase is also a 710 offering for my Camillus BK9. This is also "one" of my faves. JD is the model.

    Neither the knife or the sheath are as pretty now as they are in this pic. With all the storm damage we've had this year, both have been workin' out 'til they look pretty raggedy, but as we all know, looks ain't nothin' to a knife designed by a feller named Becker, or a sheath made by The 710.

    A' 'course, the BK21/BK14 710 combo setup is high on my favorites list too...

    I had to put the Blaze Orange scales on the '14 so they could find me if the giant oak I was murderin' with the '21 came down on top of me....

    While I am a huge fan of JD's and Ethan's work, I do have great knives & sheaths from other top-notch makers. Will probably have more of either/both/all before it's all said and done.

    Howdy everyone. Like the new look 'round here.

    A buddy of mine is a pretty good kydex bender. He mostly makes holsters (of which I own several) but he also puts together a pretty mean sheath...

    Great thread! I generally prefer leather but really like seeing these kydex and hybrid rigs.

    Here is my favorite but I'm still fine tuning it. Some of you saw it at the Gathering.

    Well like everyone else I have a few 710s and they are awesome.


    Also have an azwelke on my bk12 (which is for sale BTW) and it's very well made.

    On my bk10 I have a valhalla kydex sheath I added a leather back to. I got it off eBay it was an good price and he doesn't list it if its not in stock. So no long two week+ wait time. Great quality for the price.


    I do make a lot of my own leather sheaths, but note, I will never say I'm good at leather.

    I've made a few rabbit fur sheaths this is probably my nicest one I made for my blackjack bk5.


    I've also made a few copies of the original machax sheath made by Mr. Brommeland. I replaced the paracorad warp around with an actual leather strap.

    What a cool idea for a thread!

    I tend to make my own sheaths (when I have the time...). Though most of my experience has been with leather over the years, I've been playing around with kydex some too.

    Here is a sheath I am working on for my 9. It isn't quite finished, I need to stitch it up and put the finishing touches on it. But I think it is looking pretty good so far, I'll post more pics when I take the time to get her squared away.


    This sheath was my first foray into kydex. As with any "first time", you end up learning quite a bit.... All in all though, it protects the blade and what not.


    This is a kydex piece that I made for a friend and have since re-acquired along with the knife. It is a good solid sheath, I made some mistakes though, all a learning experience...
