Handle materials used include a variety of synthetics, stabilized wood, natural wood, and natural
products such as bone and antler. Choose your handle material and spacer colour from existing
stock or suggest another handle material and we will see if it can be sourced
For durability, dymondwood is highly recommended as a handle material. It is a natural wood
product that is laminated and impregnated with a clear resin. This stabilizes it and results in a
material that won't warp, crack, shrink, or swell.
All Badlands Knifeworks knives come with a hand made leather sheath specifically crafted and
fitted for your knife. You can choose from either black or brown leather and before ordering
make sure you tell us what hip you wear it on so we can make the sheath up accordingly. You
can choose from a variety of wildlife embellishments as well as stitching colour.
We can also make up sheaths for an existing knife in your collection. We will need the knife,
however to make sure it is custom fitted for that knife.
As you can see, the choices are yours for knife design,handle material, and sheath design, which
all can be discussed at the time of ordering.
