Custom knife sheath ?

Hi Guys,Not much venison left in the freezer, so starting to think about my next hunt. I am thinking about having a sheath custom made to accommodate both my knives and maybe a small steel...the general idea being that it stay in my daypack, but can maybe be worn on the belt if required. If anyone has had a sheath made to their own design, could you please post a couple of photo's...maybe one with the knife(s) in the sheath, and another with the knife(s) beside or on top of it. Thanks in advance. Kind Regards-Graham.

Thanks for the link Rick. There is a local outfit that have done work for me before, and I am happy to use them again. Occasionally (read "Quite often") the concept I have in my head either turns out to be totally impractical for me to use, or unable to be executed at the manufacture level for some reason. I was hoping to see what others had done (especially for 2 knives) and learn for their success/mistakes. Kind Regards-Graham.

I had two sheaths made for me, I guess you could say they are custom.
Top one is a factory Western knife with elk ivory inlaid in handle, I had a left handed sheath made for it.
Bottom one is a custom knife made by a friend with real elephant ivory handles and also a left handed sheath.
I think any good leather crafter could make a sheath to your specifications, they would not have to be custom knife makers.

Thanks jbmi, that ivory handled knife is a beauty. If I can I want both knives and a small sharpening steel in one unit...I think I'll go ahead with my own design. If, as usual, I have overlooked something in my design I guess I'll get it right next time. Thanks-Graham.

Thanks guys, A couple of nice utility rigs right there. I've said it before, but I'll say it again...you are all sooooo lucky in the USA that you have the population base to support the artisans...knife makers, leather products,trapshooting specific optometrists, gunmakers and engravers. Thanks for the pictures, I'm just a working Shmoe, but it brightens my day to see the beautiful stuff. Kind Regards-Graham.
