camping knive sheaths
A knife sheath is very important when it comes to camping. They come in all different shapes, sizes, and designs but their most important task is to help protect the knife. A knife is very essential when it comes to camping especially if you are out in the woods. They are needed for everything from eating to cutting ropes and branches. When the knife is not being used, it is the sheath that keeps it stored and protected.
Majority of knife sheaths are made of some kind of durable leather. There are some that are made of cheaper material but mostly it is some kind of leather. Ballistic nylon has become very popular as knife sheath material. When looking to purchase a sheath you always want to make sure that there is some kind of metal protection at the tip. These are for preventing the knife tip from poking through. This is obviouly for your safety.
The newest innovation in knife sheaths is the use of Kydex plastic. This high grade, durable material is known for not having any staps or fasteners and it wont compromise its grip no matter how long you use it. It also does not retain moisture. As a matter of fact, most knife companies are using Kydex as sheaths for their products.
