The Mora – Leather Woodcarving Knife Sheath (106 & 120) has been exclusively made by Shark Designs to custom fit the Mora Woodcarving Knife 106 and the Mora Woodcarving Knife 120, replacing the very basic plastic sheaths that are sold with these very good woodcarving tools.
The handmade Sheath is made from only the very best grade 3.5mm vegetable tanned leather. The Mora – Leather Woodcarving Knife Sheath (106 & 120) is a ‘Friction-Fit’ sheath. A ‘Friction-Fit’ sheath ensures that the wood carving knife is securely held in the sheath by virtue of the custom design and shape. It does not rely on flimsy straps with button or studs that easily stretch, wear out or break, resulting in the possible loss of the knife.
An essential feature of all well made sheath should inclued a ‘Welt’. The ‘Welt' lies between the two sides of the sheath, where the cutting edge of the knife usually sits. The Welt should protect the knife’s cutting edge whilst in the sheath, as well as protect the sheath from the knife’s cutting edge (i.e. preventing the knife from slicing into the stitching line). A Welt should also provide the sheath with structural rigidity and strength. With all of these necessities in mind each of our high quality sheaths has been made with a sturdy thick, hardened, stiff leather ‘Welt’ that will protect both knife and sheath from each other as the Mora Woodcarving Knives is either unsheathed or sheathed. It is important to note that sheaths that do not have a ‘Welt’ are an accident just waiting to happen.
Making a sheath with no Welt reduced the manufacturing costs and thereby increases profitability. Without a Welt, when the knife is being sheathed or unsheathed, the cutting edge of the knife will often be guided towards the unprotected stitch line. If the knife cuts into, or through, the stitch line it will cause serious damage to the sheath, but more importantly could cause a seriously injure whoever is holding the sheath at the time. To get around this major design flaw, many manufacturers, of cheaper sheaths, overcome the safety issue by simply riveting the sheath together at the key points where a knife may potentially cut through the stitching. Whilst riviting the sheath may seem to resolve this major problem, it comes at the potential loss of your knife’s cutting edge. If the purpose of a knife is to have a sharpe cutting edge to cut things, that is not going to happen if the blade is dull due to constantly coming into contact with the metal rivets.
In a nutshell cheap Sheaths are dangerous and seriously bad for your knife!
Please Note: This sheath is available for both Left and Right Handed users, so it is important that you select the correct handedness of your sheath.
