    I had a dear friend that had an auto opening Buck 110 sheathe, to be worn at 1130 and drawn with the right hand. I'd always loved it, and I didn't get the opportunity to acquire it when he passed. I'd always wanted one. I had detailed photos, and the name of the place that made his, but I kept hitting dead ends. There are some people mass producing them on Etsy, but I wanted one that was quality.

    I sent those and a detailed description to a holster maker I was extremely impressed with, Swordslinger Custom Holsters, on Oct 29th, and he said, "I never have made one but have always wanted to."

    Matthew sent me a demo video on Halloween, he wanted to test function before using expensive hides.
    Here is his demo model and functionality video:

    And, without further ado, for those of y'all still reading, here is my special order sheath, finished Nov 5th, with a giraffe body and elephant hide strap. Enjoy! I know I'll be carrying it for the next several decades!

    From Matthew:
    If you know anyone that is interested in one they can email me through my website or at Swordslingerholsters@yahoo.com. I don't have them listed on my site yet, but have already sold 6 of them since I posted that first video.

    Well, you pull the handle and it opens automatically, unless I am misunderstanding your question

    What’s the blade sliding along during the opening
    Will it dull the blade?

    All the previous ones I've seen have the blade sliding along a rivet. This one looks like a sleeved screw, but I don't have it in hand yet. And FWIW, it's not one of those "unsheathe 40x a day to pick at your teeth" kind of setups, it's for emergency drawing something larger than your pocket knife, for those of us too young to throw the buck in an overall front pocket. I am quite proficient at sharpening, and I'm not worried in the slightest about the edge, to be honest.

    One of the big benefits of the setup is you don't have to have it half cocked. It's perfectly happy with a closed buck in a horizontal position. Don't know why I forgot to mention that..

    Sorry I cruised right past the video you put up!!!~ That is slick but dragging the blade over a rivet would get all over my OCD. Having said that the sheath is great and like you said it can be used with a closed blade as well and will go great with my auto 110!!
