Leather Sleeve for the Benchmade Proper

Leather Sleeve for the Benchmade Proper


This is a simple leather sleeve that fits the Benchmade Proper, or any other similarly sized knife.

The sleeve is a comfortable way to keep your knife safe in your pocket, as the Proper and most other slip-joint knives do not have pocket clips.

Each sleeve is made of 2-3 ounce vegetable tanned cowhide, and can be dyed a number of different colors, with several options for stitching colors.

You now have the option of higher end leathers including Hermann Oak bridle leather and Horween Chromexel.

Naturally, the knives pictures are not included with your purchase.

As always, customization is available. Feel free to message me for details.

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. Hand cut, hand sewn, and in some cases hand dyed. I don't have a sewing machine, and I don't have dies to cut out each item. Every stitch you see was done by me with a needle and thread, and each item is individually cut from the hide (or sheet of kydex). As a result of this, slight variations will exist from piece to piece, but that's part of the character of a handmade item.

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.

Ordered one about a month ago in natural leather color and actually had a second one ordered until about a week after receiving this one when I cancelled the second. Rather disappointed for what is cost. It's not as substantial feeling as the picture in the listing at all. The leather is thin, flimsy, and kind of stretched out already. So much so that my 319 fell out of it twice. The workmanship is good and the stitching is impeccable. The side with the "GL" Shield logo was perfect but the other side has what looks like a large scar in the leather at the opening which makes it thin as paper and flimsy at that point. I'm going to buy 2 for my "Propers" similar to the 3 I bought at KnifeCollectors for the 3 LionSteel Barlows I purchased from them. The leather is much thicker, more substantial, and yet they're only ten bucks.

Amazing piece. He customized my knife slip a bit. I wanted more plain. Very happy. Do not think you will be sorry. Thanks again!

A great custom knife holder, leather is soft and supple. It is now starting to form around my knife to keep it secure and protected. It feels like a wallet or billfold in the pocket, so it is not to bulky or sharp. Comfort is key. The turnaround time was fast. Great return on questions even during a holiday. I am very impressed with the workmanship. And overall quality. I am going to order another one for my brother, who has the exact same knife. He’ll be very pleased like me.
