This is the sheath I was thinking of: This guy does amazing, gorgeous work. I’m thinking this kind of leatherwork over a quality Kydex gun holster would look so gorgeous.

The ITS Lapel Dagger is modeled after the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) lapel or thumb dagger, with a few modern upgrades. The original cloak & dagger tools were clandestinely carried for a few different reasons. From being used by spies to break contact during a search, to having a surreptitiously accessible weapon in an emergency.
Available in either cast stainless-steel with one sharpened edge and laser engraved ITS logo on the back side, or glass-filled nylon (non-magnetic high-strength plastic) with no markings.
For added grip retention, the metal version features a skeletonized handle, which also enables wrapping it with cordage, like our ITS Dummy Cord (as shown in photo). It can also be lashed to a stick to create a spear for survival situations and fits perfectly in our ITS Multi-Purpose Survival Container. There’s also a lanyard loop for tying your own finger lanyard. The glass-filled nylon version features a diamond texture for grip retention and a lanyard loop as well.
