Max Capdebarthes is a master leather craftsman located in the tiny (pop. 800) 12th-century village of Sauveterre de Rouergue in the south west of France.
Each sheath is made from carefully selected genuine cowhide. Mr. Max Capdebarthes is considered by most knife manufacturers as the best leather craftsman in Europe, perhaps the world.
About this sheath: Double stitching can be found on all stress areas to provide years of use without stitch failure. This sheath is made of exclusive shar leather. We offer this leather sleeve in 2 different colours (grey, brown).
This sheath is for:
12 cm knives
13 cm x 4,7 cm
Break-In period: Your new sheath may appear to be a little stiff at first, this is normal. As full grain leather ages it will adapt to the shape of your knife. Over time, the sheath will develop a much sought-after patina and a unique character that cannot be duplicated. The more you use it, the better it will look and feel.
