“The best sheath leather for Scandinavian knives”


Genuine, vegetable tanned sheath leather has been developed in cooperation with knife manufacturers.
This leather is highly appreciated for its unique qualities. The vegetable tanning method that we use maintains the natural qualities and easy workability of the leather.

Sheath leather is also suited for use in other crafts (wallets, bags, and belts). The wide range of thicknesses and colours includes the right type of product for each purpose.
