Need woods/hiking carry sheath for large folder...recommendations?

    Hi, guys.

    Hoping you can point me in the right direction. In the summer months, I spend time in the woods day hiking and stuff. For a variety of reasons, I carry a stout folder instead of a fixed blade.

    I've got a custom Bob Dozier Workhorse that just came in, which may be considered the original "overbuilt" folder. Big titanium handle, Dozier tab-lock, and 4.25" D2 blade. Too big to comfortably carry in my pocket while wearing light pants or shorts. I'm looking for a belt sheath +/- retention lanyard.

    In the northeast, it tends to be wet and muggy in the summer months. So, I don't think leather would be the greatest choice. I was thinking in terms of Cordura magazine pouches. I've seen knife sheaths in that style by Maxpedition, Blackhawk, and others; even Victorinox..

    To give you some perspective, this is the knife I'm talking about. A real giant!


    As a point of comparison, here she is with one of the largest folders around: the Extrema Ratio *185 RAO


    Any recommendations?

    Maybe a double stack mag holder.
