This is a heavy duty (0.80) kydex sheath for the Benchmade 183 fixed Contego series knives.
The sheath is an improvement over the plastic sheath that comes stock from Benchmade. It is available in a variety of colors and can be ordered with either a leather or kydex belt loop, scout straps, or Tek-Lok, and some options 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. There are many other colors available for the leather loops, so if you would like another color, let us know.
We now offer coated webbing for the scout straps. Your color options are: Matte Black, Shiny Black, OD Green, Tan, Coyote Tan, Safety Orange, Safety Yellow, Toxic Green. Let me know in the order notes which color you'd like if you choose the coated web strap option, otherwise we'll pair it with the sheath color.
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.
*This listing is for the sheath only, no knife is included with purchase.

Please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
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.

Absolutely perfect and miles better than the stock sheath!
