Benchmade Bushcrafter Kydex Sheath

Benchmade Bushcrafter Kydex Sheath


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 kydex or leather belt loop, and each option can be ordered with a retention strap that snaps around the handle to keep the knife from bouncing around. There is a thumb groove to assist in drawing the knife and a drain hole in the bottom to prevent fluid buildup.

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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any items in Stock, ready to ship?

Everything we offer is made to order, so will take a minimum of one week to ship out.

Why so expensive?

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.

Can you make a sheath for a knife other than the ones offered here?

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.

Do your holsters meet IDPA regulations?

All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.

Are your leather sheaths lined with Kydex?

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.

awesome sheath for my bushcrafter. the maker was really responsive over email as well.

Received the sheath ahead of schedule, it has great retention, looks well made, and was very comfortable on my test hike (5 miles) I look forward to using Grommets again. Thanks guys!

This is a very well made sheath. I am very happy with such an upgrade from the inadequate factory include sheath. This is well tooled and well made from quality materials. As a Marine, trained survivalist, and outdoor enthusiast, I would recommend this sheath.

Perfect fit, high quality, keeps knife secure even when carrying externally on shoulder upside down.

Well-made and very well-fitting scabbard. Although the knife clicks into place in the kydex, I'm glad I got the leather snap-on too - further insurance against loss and it looks good. It molle's onto a backpack, etc., well enough too. Many Thanks!
