I recently inherited a brand new SWKDSH and I would to protect it and anyone around with a sheath. I expect this will be mainly for storage and safety reasons. It might be lashed to a backpack or in the back of a vehicle, but rarely belt carried. Could those of you that own sheaths for these tell me who makes the best ones. Where is the best place to find one? What are the pros and cons of each? Thank you!

Dave brown does great work! I had my KDSH riding in a dave brown sheath, but i used a kydex/leather drop loop belt attachment with it from Azwelke. Im not a fan of tek-loks at all. I have also had KDSH sheaths from Mashed Cat and Azwelke. All of them were good... But if i had to say my favorite was from Dave brown with the azwelke belt attachment.

David is good and I've used his sheaths. I like to shake things up between the dift makers--they all have their own styles. I'll probably go with the Mashed Cat for my KDSH. Sheath, strap, tek lok for $50.

If you want leather, Rainwalker is the only one I'd trust. He also does some pretty amazing kydex. Then again, so does Okuden and J&G Design. I've used them all and they each do fantastic work.

Don't know if they have one to make from though, so if you go with any of those, check first, otherwise you'd need to send your hawk in to get the sheath made for it.

Good luck!
