What Part of the Cow Hide Makes the Best Sheath?

If you’re a knife owner, you may be wondering what part of a cow hide makes the belt sheath. There are three main types: Top grain, Shabrack, and Fold-over. This article will give you the scoop on each type. If you’re not sure which one to choose, read on to learn about the advantages of each. After all, a sheath should protect your knife and make you feel safe carrying it around.


Cowhide is the primary material used to make leather sheaths and belts. The “harness” leather is obtained from adult neutered animals with a very thick layer (two to five millimeters). It has a very high density and is very strong. “Shabrack” is the thickest section of the animal’s hide and is often used for belts and harnesses.

If you want the best sheath for your knife, make sure to choose the best material. Cowhide is a great choice, but not the only type of cowhide that makes a good sheath. You should also look for vegetable-tanned cow leather, which will not corrode your knife. Leather furniture accounts for about 14% of all leather products, and you should make sure that the material you choose is Top Grain cow leather. Leather stitching also makes a difference.
