Made to Order

Product Overview

This is a Made to Order Product. Please refer to Wait Time page for current lead time on orders.

Scout/Cross Draw Carry

This sheath is designed to be carried horizontally on your belt, either Scout Carry or Cross Draw. Scout Carry is referred to as carrying the sheath at the small of your back, while Cross Draw is carrying the sheath on the front of your belt.

PRS Collar Retention

PRS stands for Pivoting Retention Strap. This design feature allows you to pivot the retention strap downward once it is unsnapped, so it is out of the way of the knife edge when drawing the knife. 

Ambidextrous Carry

This sheath is designed to be ambidextrous. Simply unscrew the straps and retention collar from the sheath, and flip them over to the opposite side. We just ask which Draw Side in the options above so that your sheath will arrive already setup the way you want.

Opposite Draw Side PRS Collar

While the Benchmade 162 Bushcrafter Scout Sheath is ambidextrous, the PRS collar component is not. This is due to the shape of the knife's handle, which requires a separate molded PRS collar for Left and Right Draw Sides. This component is required if you are purchasing the Vertical Carry Conversion, because converting the sheath to Vertical Carry will reorient the sheath in a way that requires the Opposite Draw Side PRS Collar to be installed.

Made from Premium Wickett & Craig Saddle Skirting Leather

Each sheath is made from Wickett & Craig's Grade A, 9-10oz, Vegetable Tanned, Saddle Skirting Leather. We chose this leather as it is firm, yet workable, has a rich depth of color, and develops a beautiful patina with character throughout its life.

Lifetime Guarantee

We stand behind all of our Craftsmanship and Materials. We guarantee that our product's stitches will stay stitched, rivets will stay riveted, and snaps will continue to function for the life of the product. Should you manage to cut your retention strap, we will replace it for you. The retention strap and kydex collar are both covered under our Lifetime Guarantee. 

Vertical Carry Option

Each of our Scout Sheaths has the ability to be converted to Vertical Carry using our Vertical Carry Conversion. The conversion piece mounts to the back of the sheath, and still allows the belt straps and pouch to remain attached to the sheath. This sheath uses Vertical Carry Conversion Size 3.

Water Resistant Wax Treatment

Each of our sheaths is waxed inside and out with a Beeswax based Leather Conditioner. We apply this Leather Conditioner with heat, which liquefies the wax so it penetrates deep into the leather fibers. Our wax treatment in the interior of the sheath ensures that moisture will not be trapped within the sheath, to avoid the chance of rust forming on your blade.

High Quality Snaps and Hardware

We only use the best hardware for our sheaths,Black Oxide Steel Chicago Screw Hardware and DOT Scovill Mil-Spec Button Snaps.

MOLLE Compatible

The belt loop spacing of this sheath is compatible with standard MOLLE/PALS webbing. Horizontal Mounting Only. 

Firesteel Loop

This allows you to carry a firesteel on your sheath. Available in 3 sizes: 1/4", 5/16", 3/8". These sizes refer to the diameter of the firesteel rod. Firesteel is sold separately.

    Don’t Hesitate.

    Yes we all know Benchmade’s sheath for this knife is as useless as useless gets. I bought this sheath knowing the turnaround time is quite excruciating. Let me just say, IT IS WORTH THE WAIT. Couple the 162 with the sheath and you’ve got as good a knife setup as you could imagine. The attention to detail, quality, craftsmanship, etc. is second to none. I haven’t been this happy with a product in a long damn time. Hurry up and buy it. It’s the perfect compliment to a perfect blade. Awesome work Brian. I’ll be back to outfit a few more soon.

    Beautifully crafted sheath

    Posted by Mark Sandoval on Jun 4th 2020

    I'm really impressed with this sheath. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but the knife slides in and out perfectly. There is literally not one flaw in the craftsmanship and it looks AWESOME when I sport it in cross-draw. My wife keeps making fun of me for wearing it around the house, but I have to perfect my cross draw speed — you know how that goes. I can't wait to use this over the years. The thing is awesome and was WORTH THE WAIT! Highly recommended.

    Superior craftsmanship!!!

    Posted by Dale Luttrell on Jan 15th 2020

    What a beautiful piece of hardware, where to begin! I purchased the “prs scout sheath” for my benchmade bushcrafter 162. I have been putting it into use for about a month now and I am so pleased with this purchase. The craftsmanship that goes into these sheaths is remarkable, you receive not only a beautiful piece of art but also functional hardware. The thumb break on the collar feels at one with your hand when you grip the handle of your knife. The leather layers that are sewed together are meticulously done and appear almost seamless. It feels stout but not too bulky and the fact that sage wood offers a vertical carry conversion that looks like it takes little time to mount is definitely an added bonus. I definitely recommend this sellers work to anyone looking for something that will last for years to come. Iv gotten dirt/ mud, sap and snow on this sheath and it wipes right off with little effort. I inquired about my ship time and received a reply the next morning which to me shows that the craftsman not only invests time and energy into his product but also checks his inbox and finds time to get back to you. Thank you for this piece sage wood gear!! I will be ordering another with the vertical carry mount for my tops el chete. Hats off to you my friends, your work is top shelf.

    Benchmade 162 scout

    I loved it a bunch, it fit the knife so well it felt like a magnet. Unfortunately the scout style did not fit around my gun belt so I gave it to a good friend who was very happy.
