The CRKT Companion is great but it's too vanilla ice cream for me. My Watson blade is carbon steel with some really nicely figured flame maple scales; it is much more stylish than the Companion. So...
Does anyone know where I can find a maker for very high quality IWB leather sheaths? I don't mind spending some bucks to get what I want or sending the knife out for fitting. Its for a drop point fixed blade. The knife is about 8" overall with a 4" blade. Thanks in advance.

Dan, don't Blade Tech or MD still make kydex ones?
I think Tony at Milt Sparks will still make you one. They all carry those big elk-skinning knives out there in the hairy-chested West. Ask him on that 1911.com place thingy.

The CRKT Companion is a nice little knife. Look at the IWB sheath from Mike Sastre at River City Sheaths if you want a GREAT way to carry it. It's Kydex, but you should take a look at it for one of the BEST IWB sheaths for that blade.
I know you asked for leather for a different knife, but I had to say something about it because it's such a good sheath.
Haven't used Bladerigger.
Look up Kenny Rowe on Knifeart.com or use a search engine. He's considered by many to be about the best guy for leather sheaths around. He has several designs that are IWB.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I'm really looking to go leather since flame maple and kydex is a sin ;) I probably will try calling Mr. Kanaley and see if he'll rig me up an IWB sheath for my knife, I wanted to order an Executive Companion anyway.
Harold, I just might pick up that sheath for the CRKT.

I actually have one that I am will to sell along with the CRKT knife. I have moved on to another fixed blade carry option and won't be using it. Give me an e-mail if you're interested.
