American Survival Guide
William Collins will be the first to admit that he is a knifemaker, not a sheathmaker. While he is capable of providing a serviceable sheath for his knives, he wants to ensure that his customers have access to a sheath that is as unique and bombproof as the knives that they are designed to carry.
For this, William has collaborated with Randy Smith from Stitched Gear Outfitters.
Randy has been making leather goods of extreme quality for many years and it shows in his designs and attention to detail.
The sheath system that Randy designed for the WCSK is as tough and durable as the knife it holds. The body of each sheath is made from 10-ounce skirting leather. The leather has been waterproofed using a proprietary beeswax impregnation process. This process makes the leather nearly as weatherproof as Kydex while still retaining all the best attributes of leather. Tension at the mouth of the sheath is user-adjustable, and the entire area is reinforced with heavy Kydex.
The sheath utilizes a unique X-shaped panel that is affixed using heavy copper rivets. This panel allows the sheath to be carried vertically, horizontally or, using an optional adaptor, baldric style over the shoulder. When equipped with two of these panels, the sheath can be outfitted with an accessory pouch that holds an Altoids tin, a diamond sharpener and a ferro rod. The sheath can also be equipped with a Kydex loop that holds a Streamlight Microstream flashlight. Customized attachment accessories are an option as well.
Each sheath is stamped with a serial number that matches the serial number on the WCSK.
The sheath system can be as comprehensive or as minimalistic as the customer would like. No matter what options you choose, you can be assured that you will have a sheath that is as durable and long lasting as the knife for which it was designed.
