This knife has a full nine ounce leather sheath made from the double shoulders. Top quality leather that has been hand cut, sewn, and dyed using only the finest materials available. The sheath has been hand cut and hand stitched using the double needle harness stitch method and there is a deep stitch groove to keep the 100% bees wax and pine pitch impregnated Flax, 5 strand thread from wearing. This sheath was made to last a lifetime. And so has the ATS-34 Stainless Steel knife itself.
