leather scout sheath for the Benchmade Bushcrafter

leather scout sheath for the Benchmade Bushcrafter


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.

The design is inspired by the standard sheath from Benchmade, but features two straps to carry the knife "scout style" in the rear.

It is made out of 8-10 ounce latigo cowhide, and has a retention strap with snap closure. The sheath can have an integrated loop for a fire steel at the end of the sheath, and both of the scout straps have two snaps, for added security.

The sheath can now also be ordered with two solid straps, that cannot be undone, but render the sheath ambidextrous, making it more modular and convenient.

In the options "Ambi" refers to the ambidextrous straps.

You also have the option of adding one of two different leather dangler loops and D ring which attached to a strap that the scout straps thread through to carry the knife vertically.

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.

If you're looking for a Kydex sheath for the same knife, or a leather sheath that suspends the knife vertically, check out my other listings.

For color options other than the ones listed, or for custom color options, please check out the add-on listing.

*This listing is for the sheath only, no knife or firesteel 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.

    The sheath was flawless, very nice, fit my Benchmade perfect. just wish shipping was a bit faster. but satisfied !
