A Word About Sheaths

Knife in Sheath, Lucas Forge

Every Lucas Forge knife goes to its new owner with a custom made leather sheath, crafted here in our Alabama shop.

We cut the leather. Trim it. Dye it. Mold it. Glue it. Form the welt strip. Punch the stitch holes. Oil it. Stitch it. Bevel the edges. Dye the edges. Apply final finish. Do a final quality check for fit. Then the sheath is hand signed.

Every sheath is made to fit properly with its knife. We want a snug fit. Nothing else will do.

The finest ingredients go into these sheaths. We choose USA-tanned leather, bark-tanned Herman Oak leather being our material of choice, and heavy weight nylon thread for the hand stitching (which is a subject all its own!). You’re getting a tough sheath put together to last you a long time.

Most of these leather sheaths are made of just two pieces of leather and much thought goes into the shape and design of those two leather pieces.

We hope you’ve enjoyed a glimpse into the background of the sheath that you get with your knife. Custom options are available for your sheath, too! Check out the Trekker sheath, which is available as an addition to your custom knife! Snap sheaths are also available with some models, such as the Classic Hunter.

Thank you so much for your support and interest!

Well, if you’ve been following the action here, you might know…this cool handle is, in actuality, a phenolic made with genuine coffee bean bags!

The result is remarkable! Natural, and each is truly one-of-a-kind.

Here’s another example, which, again, shows the weave of these upcycled coffeebags. The material makes for a three-dimensional, very unique handle choice!

Just for fun and interest, here are some pictures of a sheet of this coffeebag phenolic (kind of like micarta) before it is turned into handsome knife handles. These bags have probably been well-traveled!
