This sheath is designed specifically and exactly for the Fiskars X7 Hatchet. It is hand made out of full-grain vegetable-tanned cowhide and then stained with the appropriate color. The leather is treated with Fiebings Mink Oil (available here from us). Ray Mears
This sheath will keep your Fiskars X7 Hatchet safe from being dulled by contacting other items in your pack and from cutting through other materials.
The construction of the sheath starts with three pieces of leather: the main body of the sheath, the securing strap and the welt. The main body is folded over a welt that is inserted between the two folded halves which prevents the blade of the inserted axe from cutting the stitch that is placed to hold the sheath together. The sheath is then hand stitched and rivets are placed at the corners to reinforce the body. The axe head blade, when placed into the sheath, is prevented from touching the rivets or the stitching because of the welt. The retention strap is then secured with a rivet and a snap is added for easy on/off action. This sheath is built to last, and quality hand made in the USA (Spokane, Washington). Finish to the edges of the leather is applied for aesthetic appeal. The color of the leather may vary, and may be a darker or lighter. There may also be slight variations in the evenness of color distribution on the sheath.

Fiskars X7 Hatchet – Custom Leather Sheath

I bought this through Amazon but I wanted to review it here especially after seeing that there were no reviews on this particular sheath.
I’d been looking at this sheath for over a year (on Amazon) but honestly the only thing that kept me from buying it immediately was the price compared to the price of the hatchet. I read all of the reviews on Amazon so I knew it was a great product. Well, I decided to get it for myself for Christmas. I came in the mail today and now I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to buy it. This thing is beautiful! It’s well worth the money.
I’m sure going to get a lot of use out of this. It’s 1000% better than the huge plastic handle/sheath thing that came with my S7.

I currently don’t have a review though I do have a question. I would like to know if you do military discount? Though I do notice that it is well crafted and thoroughly understand if you do not. I do have have an X7 and I’m looking for a great looking sheath like this!!!!
