I sold this knife today.

The fellow who bought it told my dealer he wanted me to make a sheath for it................my design.  It's far from a plain knife and my thinking is I don't want the sheath to "compete" with the knife.  With that in mind, I'm thinking a folded, cross-draw sheath with simple tooling.  Any thoughts or suggestions?

I agree with the simple and folded, but you may want to ask if the customer prefers crossdraw or strong-side carry.  Or you could make it suitable for either.

Thanks, Alan.  My plan was to ask if he prefers cross-draw or strong side carry.  Also ask if he's right or left handed and what color sheath he would prefer.  Those are the easy questions to answer.  My concern was about style of sheath and complexity of decoration.  I'm thinking folded sheath with minimal decoration............but enough to not make it dull in appearance.  Maybe Josh will chime in with some thoughts.

Sorry I just saw this. I think you have it totally under control though. That style of knife is destined for the pouch or fold over sheath. The typical built-up sheath that matches the blade profile will be unstable. Wet-forming the leather will make it very secure and easy to withdraw.
