Benchmade Bushcrafter Leather Sheath

Benchmade Bushcrafter Leather Sheath


This is a handmade leather sheath for the Benchmade 162 and 162-1 Bushcrafter series knives.

This sheath is an improvement over the thin leather and kydex sheath that comes stock from benchmade.

It is made out of 8-10 ounce latigo cowhide, and features a 1" welded steel D ring and snap closure. The sheath has an integrated loop for a fire steel, and hole to attach a lanyard.

The design is essentially the same as the stock sheath from Benchmade, but mine is made of a sturdier leather, and can be ordered with a removable dangling loop to attach to the D ring. The lanyard hole at the bottom does not typically come with a grommet installed, as the surrounding area is stitched, as shown in my photos, I can install one if you like, let me know when ordering, and I will add one for you.

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.)

As always, customization is available, feel free to message me.

*This listing is for the sheath only, no knife is included with purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

We now have a section of in stock items! Everything in this section is available, and will ship within 1-2 business days.

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.

Does the knife come with the sheath?

No. Each item is for the sheath/scabbard/holster itself, no knives, swords, or guns are included with any purchase.

High quality product. Excellent transaction. Perfect fit. Thank you!

This is the nicest piece of kit!

Perfect fit, perfect stitches, perfect hardware

Wow, you just can’t get your head around how bad the stock sheath is when you see what real craftsmanship is like. And if you are a lefty like me, you realize the stock sheath is poor quality, AND useless by design. Nice work on this one.

Excellent sheath. Knife and fire rod fit and hold perfectly, leatherwork is excellent, looks exactly as depicted. Thicker leather used is far superior to original Benchmade sheath, belt loop is very well designed and constructed. Excellent customer service with on time delivery. Could not be better than this.
