Product Overview

Benchmade Bushcrafter 162 X-MOD Sheath

The X-MOD Knife Sheath is the most advanced leather knife sheath on the market. When we set out to design this knife sheath, we focused on improving all aspects of using a knife sheath in the Backcountry. The design is ambidextrous, and completely modular. You can set up the sheath in ANY configuration you would like. The sheath body is made from Top Grade 9.5oz Wickett & Craig leather, and utilizes a rigid composite welt (the middle layer of a knife sheath). This rigid welt keeps the sheath from flexing, something that is common with all leather knife sheaths. The knife is retained by 2 Precision Molded Kydex Retention Panels that are attached to the upper part of the sheath with machine screws. These kydex panels allow for what is called "Passive Retention", meaning there is no component that you need to unfasten, or unsnap (such as a retention strap) in order to draw the knife from the sheath.

The X-MOD Sheath is available to order in either Vertical Carry, Scout Carry, or Both. When ordering Both, you will receive 1 sheath, with both carry components.

The Vertical Carry option comes with the Standard Belt Loop, but additional belt loop carry options are-

Dangler Belt Loop

Belt Clip Mount

A Firesteel/Sharpener Loop can be added to the sheath as well, you will need the "Type A" style.

Firesteel/Sharpener Loop


 Threadlocker is recommended for the hardware. You can purchase some here - Loctite 242 (Blue) Threadlocker


NOTICE: This Sheath will ONLY fit the Benchmade 162 Bushcrafter. Knife is NOT included. Firesteel, Sharpener, and/or mounting loop are sold separately.

    Benchmade 192 X-Mod Sheath

    Just received my sheath for the Benchmade 192 Bushcrafter and all I can say is wow! This thing is a work of art.
    It’s absolutely beautiful and the best of both worlds: nice, premium leather and kydex where it counts.
    It was well worth the wait.

    162 sheath

    I cannot find another knife sheath maker that puts out higher quality material than sagewood. The combination of outstanding leather work married with the functionally of kydex is perfect. The only downside to sagewood is that they don't make sheaths for my TOPs BOB (its discontinued). If sagewood made it, i would get it in a heart beat. Their craftsmanship is superb.

    Far exceeds expectations

    This is without question the best sheath I have ever seen or owned. Meticulous craftsmanship and genius design. I love the BM162, but the factory supplied sheath leaves a lot to be desired. The Sagewood X-MOD would be a bargain at twice the price. Well done!!
