Custom Handmade Canyon Tan Leather Buckaroo style Dangling Pocket Sheath

  • Sale
  • Regular price $29.99


Let me start by saying this is a design I put together years ago, and I've been using it ever since with both stainless and carbon steel knives. It is the most effective way to carry a pocket knife I have yet discovered (and I've discovered many). It keeps my knives bone dry, even in sticky New England summers working in the yard, or taking the scouts out on bivouac.

The Buckaroo sheath is an old idea, dating to the cowboys of the old west, who themselves borrowed the concept from Mexican Vaqueros. The word was "Americanized" to Buckaroo, and stuck.

You attach the sheath to a belt loop by running the sheath itself through the cutout in the lanyard, and it hangs perfectly at your side. The lanyard is long enough to reach both front and rear pockets, and when pocketed, hangs perfectly vertical, keeping a clean pocket line, and not digging in to your thigh when seated or bending. When needed, pull the sheath out of your pocket and let it dangle at your side for easy access, use the knife and slide it back in without fear of ever losing it or it slipping from the sheath.

The sheath and lanyard are constructed of 5oz vegetable tanned leather, dyed and sealed with heavy duty leather proofer (the same stuff I use on my Redwing boots for the winter), then sewn with good thick waxed thread. It will age and patina beautifully as it rides in your pocket. TO care for it, just use neutral kiwi shoe polish, or reapply waterproofer as necessary. It is sized to hold just about any knife up to a trapper, and some bigger than that (like this huge Jack knife I have with a 4 1/2" blade). It measures 5 inches long and 1 7/8 inches wide.

For contrast, I've supplied a black lanyard to go with the black stitching. If you want to see a brown lanyard, please see my listing for the Black sheath. I can supply this with either.
