Sheaths are also used for knives, daggers, swords and other weapons like handguns and pistols. think in the relaxation atmosphere of buscrafters and survivalists whereby the knife a very important place takes of the gear.

Trapper style sheath for a big Niëto knife. Dangler system and firesteel loop. I´ve used 16oz leather for front and welt and 9oz on the backplate. Color front is antique mid brown, back and beltloop are dyed in dark brown. I did not see any reason for a retention strap because the knife is real heavy and when in the bush there are not really points to be hung up and lose the knife. The only side the retention strap could be made to secure the knife is on the side of the cutting edge, I did´nt want that.
