    Sheath for Gerber Gator Fixed Blade

    Not sure if the best sub forum to post this in...

    I just got a new hunting/camp knife, a Gerber Gator premium fixed blade. I prefer “medium” sized fixed blades, as they are easier to carry than larger knives, and short of chopping down limbs, they can do just about anything the larger blades can.

    Here is my question, I prefer to carry fixed blades in the field in a scout style sheath, worn horizontally in the small of my back. Does anyone have a recommendation for one such sheath that would hold the Gerber Gator?

    Many thanks.

    No idea. I’m looking for a leather sheath for my Beanchmade. Or someone who can fix the old one.

    Leather would be ideal, but I would even settle for kydex.

    For which Benchmade are you looking for a sheath?

    YELLOWHAWK CUSTOM.
    Incredible sheaths.
    I think that for your intended purpose Kydex would probably be your best bet.

    Thumbs up

    Not cheap but they will build you a true custom.
    You might want to add a couple of super practical custom options that they offer.

    They build some true bad-arse custom knife Kydex.

    Nice knife! A useful size and blade shape coupled with a premium steel and well-designed grip!

    I think it’s a quality multipurpose knife.

    I will be sending it to Yellow Hawk to have a sheath made. I spoke with him today. Thank you for the recommendation!

    Great sheath maker. Perfectionists.
    Never send a custom job out unless it's flawless.

    Hopefully you'll be able to post a photo on the forum once your sheath arrives.
