When working in a woodland coupe, or layering a hedge, or tidying the garden it's useful to have your billhook ready at hand, hanging from your belt.

Before having my own holster I would put my billhook down and then spend half an hour trying to find it under piles of brash! Wearing it at your belt becomes second nature and also reduces the number of times you have to bend down to pick it up.

Hand stitched using tough 5mm thick and natural veg-tanned cowhide. I dye the leather, burnish the edges and finish with natural oils and beeswax.

I design the sheaths so that a billhook can be inserted either way around, so they can be warn on the left or right and used ambidextrously.

Each sheath comes with a copper protector on the mouth of the sheath. This ensures that sharp billhooks will not cut the sheath when inserting and provides a satisfactory sound as it slides into place!

I can include an additional pouch for a pruning saw. If choosing this then please let me know which saw you use so I can ensure it fits. The pouch in the photos is designed to fit the Bahco Laplander and Silky Pocket Boy saws.

To ensure that I make a sheath the right size please send me a photo of your billhook (plan view) with a ruler next to it when you've ordered, along with the blade's width and length.

All my products are made by me in my small workshop in the northwest of England, UK. I sometimes have a lot of orders on my waiting list so please allow 2 or 3 weeks for me to make and post it. When you place you're order I'll be in touch soon to let you know when it will be ready. And please feel free to send me an Etsy message if you've any questions or would like something a little different.

Why not add my leather balm to your basket too, to nourish and protect your leather so it last for many more years?

The smell of the English leather for the sheath is scrumptious. The sheath fit perfectly and is a beautiful addition to our living room. Tony was very accommodating and responsive. Only downside is shipping from the Uk but it was well worth it. None of the us vendors would touch the sheath because it was too large. Tony did a magnificent job.

I got this for my husband for our 3 year wedding anniversary, and he absolutely loves it! It looks beautiful and communication was super easy to figure out the size/specs for the sheath. Thank you so much!
