Product Description & Reviews
This sheath is designed and tooled specifically for the Benchmade Bushcrafter 162. It is built out of full-grain vegetable-tanned cowhide, then stained with a brown or black stain and treated with Neatsfoot oil. The sheath is formed around the knife, therefore the fit is snug and precise; each sheath is tested to have a precise fit. The knife sits very snugly in sheath and does not move around. The sheath is constructed with a welt that is inserted between the two folded halfs which prevents the blade edge from cutting the stitching that is placed to hold the sheath together. The sheath is then glued, and hand sewn with a saddle stitch using waxed nylon thread - this is why you do not see any markings from a sewing machine along the threads. This sheath is built to last, and quality hand crafted in the USA (Spokane, Washington). The edge of the sheath has a sealed polish finish. The sheath is treated with Neatsfoot oil. The optional ferro rod sleeve is designed for a 5/16th inch diameter ferro rod. As you can see in the photos, the sheath and sleeve are made from one piece of leather, and one end of the sleeve is sewn in replacing the welt in that area (see photo of back of sheath). The ferro rod pictured in the photos is the Exotac FireROD. The sleeve from top to bottom is 2 inches long. If you would like a different size ferro rod sleeve (diameter), please contact us for customization. Please note that the sheath is shaped slightly differently to accommodate the ferro rod sleeve, if you choose this option. The sheath can be worn directly on a belt, and the maximum belt width that it will accept is 2.5 inches. It can also be extended down with a dangler, which is also available from us. Some variation from the photos in color and leather texture can be expected. You can see a previous generation knife sheath in the following YouTube video: http://youtu.be/S97se6qbe7A Note: product DOES NOT include the KNIFE or the FERRO ROD.
