At Muddy River Tactical, we have built our brand and reputation off of our custom kydex and leather holsters.  Many people however don’t realize that we also make custom kydex Knife Sheaths!

Why you should consider a Custom Knife Sheath

Generally speaking, when you buy a knife the sheath never is the quality that the knife deserves.  They are normally mass produced, cheap, and not the best fitting.  While we are a fan of leather for our gun holsters, we do not think it is a good option for knife sheaths.  A quality knife will be sharp, which in turn means you have to make the leather bulky and have an insert in it to make sure it does not cut through the leather.  Well why would you want to add bulk and no retention of leather when you can have a thin, durable, and positive retention custom Kydex Knife Sheaths?


The Benefits of Custom Kydex Knife Sheaths

Kydex has a lot of traits that make it perfect for a custom knife sheath.  To start, they are durable enough to last a lifetime with almost zero maintenance.  If you are out hunting for example and the knife and sheath get bloody, you simply can wash out with water and you are good to go!

With Kydex you get the opportunity to make your sheath have its own custom look.  We have over 30 options of kydex colors and patterns to choose from.  On top of that you can also choose what belt clip attachment you want to fit your situation and how you use the knife sheath.

Most importantly with kydex you get a sheath that will have great retention for your blade.  We custom mold every single knife to ensure it is an exact fit to your specific knife.  With kydex, you will no longer have to worry about snapping a loop to hold your knife in or anything like that.  You will simply slide your knife in the sheath and you will feel the knife “click” into place.
