Our new Premium Axe Sheaths landed on Friday. We have them handmade in the USA by artisan leather workers from vegetable tanned top grain 6-7oz cowhide Latigo leather. Dyed a traditional tan colour and infused with oils and waxes for moisture protection and stamped with the famous Helko Crown logo.
Each is fastened with nickel-plated rivets, and incorporates a welt for added bit/blade protection. The sheath is secured with an adjustable nickel-plated buckle and strap.
The leather is softer and more supple than our Standard Sheaths. They are thick, durable and will endure years of service - they look great too!
Our Standard Axe Sheaths, which come as standard with our axes, are made at the same workshops as our premium sheaths and from the same 6-7oz top grain cowhide leather, except they are left untreated and do not have a welt.
They are stiffer than our Premium Sheaths and incredible hard wearing. The untreated nature of the leather allows you the option of dying or finishing the leather to a custom finish if you so wish.
Sheaths are available in 6 sizes with 30.5cm and 43cm straps. If you are unsure which size you need, please ask.
