How to Find the Right Sheath for Your Knife, Anchorage, Alaska

To find the perfect knife sheath, it’s important to take into account a variety of factors. The experts at Northern Knives, based in Anchorage, AK, understand that material, design, and fit all play a major role in the process. Since 1996, the specialists at this knife shop have brought a degree of knowledge and insight to their work that has provided numerous customers with excellent results.

When it comes to finding the best sheath for a particular knife, they emphasize the following three factors:

  • Durability: It’s important to find a sheath made out of a material strong and durable enough to handle your particular blade’s sharpness. Whether a person decides to purchase a Kydex or leather sheath will depend on the blade they’re carrying.
  • SheathFit: A knife should fit perfectly in its sheath. This means that it should be secure enough to stay put, but not so tightly-held that it can’t be removed quickly and smoothly.
  • Design: Customers who opt for leather sheaths often want a custom, artistic decorative inset to go with it. Finding a knife shop that offers custom etching and similar services will allow a knife owner to transform their sheath into a fashionable work of art.

Whatever a customer’s needs, the team at Northern Knives in Anchorage always works to ensure their clients get exactly what they’re looking for. If you’re interested in a custom sheath, they’ll look at your knife and design one perfect for your needs. If you’re more interested in a generic sheath, they’ll help you find the best choice from their long list of options. With two decades of experience in the business, they are true custom knife experts. To learn more about their services, visit them online, or call (907) 569-1800.
