Kydex sheath for my new bark river aurora LT.

    Hello people,

    I am new to the forum and I hope I'll remain long in this wonderful community you created. It is a pleasure for me to join such a great concentration of knife experts.

    I just bought my first Bark river, and I chose the aurora LT model in 3v with gold and blue elder burl handle.
    Now, I love the leather sheath the knife came with. But I also like making my own custom sheaths as I've always done in the past with my other knives. I was concerned about one thing and I'd like some experts to give me some advice about it.
    I am worried the elder burl can get consumed after a while with the retention caused by the kydex sheath, when the knife gets in and out. Should I be worried at all? Can I start making my sheath, or should I stick with the leather one? How hard is the elder burl? Does it have a good wear resistance? Moreover, should I also be concerned about the semistainless capabilities of the CPM 3V? If I use the knife for wet situations or cutting it through moist wood, should I always be careful that it stays dry like a carbon steel blade?
    Thanky you!

    I have no experience with this. You might wish to contact member @Linos

    He makes a mean kydex sheath. Maybe he can answer your questions, and maybe even make a sheath for you.
