Here's my Un-X-LD lockback in a GEC sheath. Nice functional sheath for about $12. It will work with quite a few of my folders. I think I'm going to get another that I can use with my thinner profile knives as this one has stretched out a bit to accommodate the thicker knife - it fits perfectly - just the right amount of snugness.
I use this for my moose, knife is tethered to my belt, keeps from falling out when crawling around and such, also keeps the knife suspended in pocket in the vertical position, zero weight in pocket, don't even notice it is there. I don't keep items in pockets with my knives, but with this method of carry I do keep other items in pocket. Peanut wore the hole in my coin pocket.
I've always carried multiple items in my pockets. To protect my precious knives and have a little order, I made this pouch. Every item I always carry has a slot, so there's no need to fumble around until the fingers find the thing they are looking for. Plus the cell phone doesn't get too scratched up.
I made this as a prototype to see how it works out. It's been about two years now, so it may be time to finally grab some nicer leather
Here is a shot of one I made for my gec.
And here is one I made for a good friend:
my first attempt at the pocket sheath and my 3rd or so attempt at tooling... or fancy cowboy pants for my stockman
Well done IVANKERLEY

Here's one I made for myself. I was experimenting with carrying in my left pocket, but I went back to the right pretty quickly.
Sheath?!? I don't need a stinkin' sheath! It's a knife! Not porcelain (at least not mine)!
I've had one sheath but as it had a hole in the top and bottom I did not trust it. I've contemplated trying to make some but just haven't gotten around to adding it to my 10:30pm-1:30am list (when I get to do my thing some nights). I've recently began trying my hand at leather so thanks for all of the ideas.
I just realized that I have carried one slipjoint in a sheath- this little lobster just got retired for now, and I've carried it in the sheath it came in since I bought it- mostly because its red to be honest!
An older pic... but I made this sheath by myself. Not the best work, I know, but my first selfmade
You can call me Uncle Andi!

This is my edc setup
but I also plan to make something like this for my best GEC
I'd also like a mission wallet at some point...
awesome sheaths guys, i love the complexity of some of the sheaths designed to hold more than one knife\item.
Heres one i made for a mora and one for a sodbuster, obviously i have a lot to learn from you people, but i like simplicity.
Here's my Laguiole my wife bought me for our 10 year.
