    Looking for sheaths for dive knives have found a few knives trying to put a few back in service

    Two inch wide nylon webbing, and a hand sewing awl, can make a very good sheath for most knives. Trying to find an original "patent" sheath, i.e. with latches or locks for a specific knife, is rather unlikely. But if you can still find a real shoemaker...they can also stitch up a good leather one easily. Ordinary leather, well oiled, does very nicely.

    I have used Nylon webbing, conveyor belt material, pieces of fire hose, and stainless steel sheet metal in various combinations for tool and knife sheaths. Pop-Rivets are often easier than sewing. A cobbler/shoe repair shop can sew heavy materials for you.

    Pvc pipe and heat gun. Use block of wood to smoosh.
    Dimple at guard for retention.
