This is a heavy duty (0.80) kydex sheath for the Benchmade 162 and 162-1 Bushcrafter series knives.
The sheath is an improvement over the thin kydex sheath that comes stock from Benchmade. It is available in a variety of colors and can be ordered with either a vertical leather belt loop, Vertical Belt loop with a snap closure retention strap, vertical belt loop with an integrated firesteel loop, a vertical loop with both a retention strap and firesteel loop, or a tek lok, with or without a firesteel loop. The tek lok cannot be made with a retention loop.
Generally speaking, the Black and OD colored kydex will come with black leather for the loop, and the two brown colors will come with brown leather. For non-Standard kydex and leather colors, check out our Kydex/leather color listing for the option to upgrade.
We offer both silver and black snaps. Let us know in the order notes when ordering what color you would like. If you do not note your preference we will give you the snap that bests suits the color of your sheath (black with black, silver with brown etc.)
Customization is available, feel free to contact for info.
If you're looking for a Leather sheath for the same knife, or for a kydex sheath with "scout style" straps check out my other listing.
*This listing is for the sheath only, no knife is included with purchase.

We now have a section of in stock items! Everything in this section is available, and will ship within 1-2 business days.
Our items are all made by hand. We do not mass produce anything, and every item has been designed, tested, and created by us. A lot of time and effort has gone into every item we offer, and we do our best to make sure that everything that leaves our shop lives up to our standards and hopefully yours.
We only offer a few different sheath options, but we operate out of a large brick & mortar cutlery store, so there's a chance we have the knife you're looking for. Contact us to set up a custom order.
All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.
To put in bluntly, if your leather sheath does what it's supposed to do, you shouldn't need to put a different sheath inside of it. Our leather sheaths function very well being made out of leather, and our kydex sheaths work very well without a leather lining.
No. Each item is for the sheath/scabbard/holster itself, no knives, swords, or guns are included with any purchase.

Very well made and fits amazingly well. Anyone who has a esee with the kydex sheath will find it very comparable. The only Issue I found was a slight bend in the kydex itself but it is small and only cosmetic. Overall I would recommend this sheath to anyone with a 162!

These are "Outstanding Sheaths"! Allen does a Great Job. This is the Sheath that should be provided with the Benchmade Bushcrafter 162. Buy it You Won't be Disappointed! I Have Ordered 3 of these Now, Years ago I Ordered 2 others to go with Gifts.

Allen, Just got my Sheath, Outstanding as Usual! There is one thing I'd like to Suggest, if I may. On the Snap I'd place it so the Top of the Snap faces backwards. The reason for this is if One is going thru Heavy Brush, a Twig or Branch can't Pop the Snap open while going thru it. I'll be Ordering a Couple More of these same Sheaths in a couple more days, and will ask you to make this adjustment. This is a Great Sheath for this Knife! I think Benchmade should Contract You!
