    Where to find sheaths for your Fiddlebacks

    Since Fiddleback Forge doesn't sell sheaths with their knives, the question about where to find sheaths comes up every so often.

    Here's an unofficial listing of Custom Makers and Production sheaths for your new Fiddleback.

    Custom Makers

    The following custom leather makers frequent the Fiddleback Forum. Some take orders, while others post their work in for sale threads. The username in parenthesis is a link the the maker's Blade Forum profile page where you can send them a PM or email and check their signature lines for links to websites, facebook, etc.

    Be sure and see the following thread for examples of their work: Show off your Fiddlebacks and Leather

    Production Sheaths

    The following companies sell production sheaths that are known to fit Fiddlebacks.

    KnivesShipFree (knivesshipfree.com)

    The KSF South Pacific sheath should fit most of the 4" (Bushfinger, Bushcrafter, Kephart, Sneaky Pete, ...) models and probably those that are a little larger like the Bear Paw, Hunter, etc.

    Feel free to add suggestions and I'll update the OP.

    Also, if you know of which of the standard Bark River Bushcraft Sheaths and KSF Pocket Sheaths fit which Fiddlebacks, I'd like to include that information as well.

    You might PM/ask 'okbohn' on here, owner of KSF.

    I vote for sticky consideration
    Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    Omega leather works? I have several, all are very well made.
    The Bear doesn't back down from the Badger because he thinks he will lose. He backs down because he knows he can't afford the injuries.

    +1 for sticky; great thread Nathan. I can personally vouch for the work of each of the aforementioned leather benders, and would recommend that anyone interested in obtaining some quality custom leather for their fiddleback family knife, do a quick search to see all of the different styles available!

    Good idea for a thread Nathan! My only suggestion would be to add a link to the "Show off your Fiddlebacks & Leather” thread so that folks can jump right to that to see some pictures of completed work.

    http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...ks-and-Leather

    It might be nice also for each of the aforementioned sheath makers to respond here with their preferred contact options (i.e. PM, e-mail, website, etc.) to make it easy for people to contact them.

    Thanks,

    Phil

    Great idea for a thread. I would be interested in a conversion list for the BRK&T sheaths when you get a chance. Thanks for your time in compiling all the sheath builders.

    Thanks for the info Rick.

    If anyone else would like me to add their info to the OP just let me know.

    I got some info from Derrick that the KSF South Pacific sheath should fit quite a few models. He and Jason are going to get back to me with more specifics.

    Thanks brother. I haven't been marketing because of health issues, but I hope to be on my feet soon. The Fiddleback crowd is a super high quality grade of enthusiast!

    I wish you hung out more at the Sheaths forum. I may have fewer questions now than I did at first, but you are still one of the guys I admire and respect most.
