Fixed Blade Sheath Types

  • Kydex Sheath

    Kydex sheaths are made from a tough, rigid material and offer superb protection for fixed blade knives. These sheaths are excellent for diving applications and tactical use. Certain models offer a grooved exposure point for cutting cord or belt without exposing the entire knife blade. (The groove is a proprietary feature found only on select SOG products.)

  • Nylon

    Nylon, like Kydex, is an excellent choice for tactical applications, as most offer the versatility of MOLLE compatibility (military mounting). Many of our nylon sheaths use Velcro retention and safety straps. Nylon tends to be more comfortable to carry than Kydex.

  • Leather

    Leather sheaths are a classic choice in fixed blade carrying options. Extraordinarily versatile and sturdy, leather - once broken in - assumes almost a custom fit. There is nothing like the patina of a properly cared for, aged leather sheath.
