Leon County Slayer did one for me in Kydex.
White Falcon made a leather one for me.
I love both.
Just don't carry the knife in the Kydex Sheath much. It's got a 6.25" blade. It makes me nervous about cutting my hand off when field dressing a pig...

Maybe a local taxidermist might have the tools to do so?

While we are on knife sheaths, anyone make machete sheaths? Like for a 22" Ontario Machete?

Nothing fancy...

...it stinks when I can buy machetes for our survey company at $20-$30 and they will last YEARS, but a cheap leather sheath is twice as much and wont last...

As someone told me before, if making sheaths was easy, everyone would do it, and there would be no market for a quality made sheath.

Danny Collins out of Oklahoma has made several for me.
He frequents this site but I cannot remember his screen name.

Another vote for Brian (Leon County Slayer).
He's made a few knives, and sheaths for me, and they're all top notch.
