Any recs on solid makers? Not sure which knife I want one for, just want to try out a leather saya. Not sure if I'm posting in the right place also, mods feel free to move/remove this if need be.

Just happened across these. Have no clue about the quality or anything...

Right on, the price is right on those ones, not tryna spend a lot

To anyone wondering, I reached out to some of the custom makers (waiting for response) but they're really great looking quality and will prob cost a penny, so we'll see.

A couple more I found browsing:


Then Etsy of course.

MTC used to sell these in more sizes, but looks like only 180mm petty remain:
Maybe you can track down the manufacturer...

I reached out to the makers, this seems more my budget range

Update:

Purchased off Etsy
Petty: ChefLeatherWorks
Suji: MasterAtrium

The petty sheath is a little “rustic” in design, not quite as refined but still done well. The sheath is not as stiff but solid enough. The thing I like most is that the maker uses magnets for her sheaths.

Suji sheath is really nice and refined. Clean lines and a stiff material. At first I didn’t know if I’d like the square design but it looks sleek af so I’m a fan. Came with nice packaging too. I gave measurements that matched both my sujis and so they both fit perfect.

Both ran about $50. Both came with rubbing balm. I am happy with both and both makers were easy to communicate with and delivered within a week.

If you’re looking for budget leather sheaths that are functional and still have aesthetics. I’d rec either maker.
