    The great craftsmanship on all of these sheathes has inspired me to give this a try myself. I have a few balies that deserve a nice sheath. What weight leather are you guys using?

    All of them are 6-8 oz leather save for the shield type one - that is three layers and is more like 4oz in order to keep the whole shebang not too thick.

    Don’t leather sheaths cause rust?

    Never heard of veg tanned leather causing rust. I know there are other types that you want to avoid with your knives, but I'm no expert.

    Poor maintenance causes rust. Leather does tend to retain moisture, and leaving knives in leather for long term storage, WITHOUT proper maintenance, will usually result in rust.

    Oil and/or wax your blades and store them in humidity controlled conditions, and you should have no problems.

    What he said basically.

    I honestly wouldn't recommend these type of sleeves for long term storage anyways. These are more daily drivers...grab a knife, throw it in the sleeve, throw it in your pocket. Retreive as desired throughout the day to satisfy your needs. Return home and remove. That said I have personally kept some of my knives in these for a couple of years with little detrimental effect.

    That said if moisture is present then yes rust can occur. Do oil and maintain your blades often. That's just good practice.
