Product Overview

ESEE4 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.

This sheath is compatible with the ESEE4 standard handle scales, the 3D scales, as well as TKC scales.

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 ESEE4. Knife is NOT included. Firesteel, Sharpener, and/or mounting loop are sold separately.

    Quality Leather Sheath System for your ESEE4

    Posted by Tony on Mar 12th 2024

    Definite upgrade from basic kydex sheaths out there. Fits ESEE4 3D well and customize option with scout carry and attaching fire steel are great.

    Esee 4 xmod sheath

    Posted by Bill on Dec 22nd 2022

    This sheath, and the 162 xmod sheath, both exhibit the best craftsmanship i have been able to find in person or online. Knife retention, fit & finish, functionally, and style are all top notch. I'm extremely satisfied and wish sagewood had more sheaths for the knives i own.
