My name is Heber Ellsworth (wildmanh) I've been working with leather for about 10 years now and been making machete sheaths for about 4 years. Last Winter Andy asked if I wanted to make some nice machete sheaths for his customers so here I am.
All of my sheaths are made from 10-12oz or occasionally 8-10oz USA Saddle Skirting from Wicket & Craig. I mainly work with brown Skirting but can dye it black on request. Sometimes custom colors are available like Mahogany, feel free to ask and I'll let you know if I have other colors on hand. Currently sheaths are hand stitched with Heavy Duty Waxed Nylon thread (white) though Natural Artificial Sinew is also available. Each sheath is finished with Montana Pitch Blend Leather dressing. Each sheath comes with a user replaceable keeper strap and loops on the back for lashing your sheath down to your leg, pack or other gear. Nickel hardware is standard though Brass and Black are also available. If you don't specify, you get Nickel.

Here are pictures of some of my more recent machete sheaths:
Standard 12" Brown sheath:
Double stitched 12" Sheath with w/D-ring and custom Dangler:
Black 14" Sheath:
Standard 16" Brown sheath:
Standard 18" Brown sheath:
Here's what the back of the standard 12".
It shows a double Tie down loop. Also note the Chicago screw on the belt loop. It holds the Keeper strap in place making it user replaceable.
And here is the back of the 12" Dangler:
Has a single Tie down loop. The D-ring can be placed higher or lower, per the customers request. Also the Dangler loop can be longer. On that one the custom ordered it short.
If you would like to order a sheath or ask questions my email is email@example.com. My phone number is available on request. Thanks for looking!
