Every piece of leather is shaped by the life story of the animal, and a unique journey to and through the workshop. These photos are representative samples of the item you will receive. If you have a specific need, you may add a note at checkout or call to discuss. Or browse our small selection of individually photographed actual items.
Heavy-duty cut and sewn leather, imprinted with the Dancing Man Knives & Ulus logo.
These sheaths are designed for a deep friction-fit, which keeps the knife safely in the sheath even in rough or catching conditions. The sheaths are designed for the Dancing Man line, and nearly always fit great. If your knife is the exception, the sheath can be returned.

Like a tailor designing a suit, a skilled leatherworker shapes flat leather into a dimensional object or container. The function of the object shapes the form, and a well-fitted sheath can be a piece of art even before embellishment.
Well-made sheaths include a welt (a narrow strip of leather) within the seam, so the knife cannot cut the threads. Of course, selection of leather, strength of thread, efficacy of design, and artistry of execution all affect the quality of the product.
