OUR "REPUTATION" IS STELLAR!  EVERYDAY, OUR CLIENTS SEND US GLOWING TESTIMONIALS.                                                                                                                                                        *** AGAIN, WE DO NOT SIMPLY "MAKE" KYDEX SHEATHS, RATHER, WE "BUILD" CUSTOM MILITARY/WILDERNESS GRADE KYDEX AND LEATHER OVER KYDEX SHEATH SYSTEMS THAT CAN GREATLY ENHANCE YOUR CAPABILITIES IN THE BUSH . AND, THEY HAVE BEEN THOROUGHLY FIELD TESTED BY SOME OF  THE TOUGHEST AND MOST PROFICIENT SOLDIERS/OUTDOORSMEN WE KNOW.                                                                                                                                                                  ***  WE ARE A U.S. MILITARY- VETERAN OWNED COMPANY.

REMEMBER, WE PRECISELY BUILD EVERY FACET OF YOUR RIG, ENTIRELY BY HAND. AVERAGING 3-15 HRS PER BUILD. WE DO ALOT FOR YOU THAT OTHER MAKERS SIMPLY DO NOT DO 4 U.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          #3.

SOUND INCREDIBLE?  YOU CAN VERIFY THIS BY LOOKING  AT MANY OF THE SYSTEMS  IN THE GALLERIES. WE CAN DO IT.  DEPENDING ON YOUR KNIFE.  JUST TELL DOUG WHAT U WANT.  IF  IT IS POSSIBLE, HE WILL DO IT.                                                                                                                                                                                                                         #5.AFTER IRONING OUT ALL DETAILS, DOUG MAY ASK YOU TO RELAY ONCE MORE, ALL IN ONE TEXT, EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT.  THEN HE WILL GIVE YOU A TOTAL PLUS SHIPPING.  USUALLY, WE DO REQUEST PAYMENT AROUND THE TIME OF THE ORDER.  IF U R  NOT ABLE, PLZ LET US KNOW.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             #6. YOU WILL LIKELY NEED TO SEND YOUR KNIFE IN TO US. THIS IS THE ONLY GUARANTEED WAY TO ACHIEVE OUR FAMOUS- "PERFECT FIT/FINISH/RETENTION".  UNLESS ITS A PRODUCTION KNIFE WE HAVE HERE, THAT WE ARE FAIRLY CERTAIN WILL WORK PRETTY WELL. ASK DOUG FIRST THOUGH.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             #6.1- NEXT, TEXT DOUG YOUR FULL NAME AND ADDRESS.

GOOD INFORMATION

WELL, IF YOU FOUND YOUR WAY HERE YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE. DOUG IS A FORMER MEMBER OF THE U.S. ARMY SPECIAL FORCES, AND AND AN AVID ADVENTURE OUTDOORSMAN. SIMPLY PUT, YOU CAN TRUST THAT WE ARE ONE OF THE BEST AT WHAT WE DO. OR ,YOU CAN SPEND A BUNCH OF TIME, READING ON, WATCHING THE MANY INDEPENDANT REVIEWS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND YOU-TUBE, ETC, ETC., AND THUSLY VERIFY IT FOR YOURSELF? OUR CUSTOM BUILT SHEATHS, FIT YOUR KNIFE LIKE A GLOVE, AND ARE VERY QUIET, WITHOUT MARKING UP YOUR BLADE. HOWEVER, ITS STILL KYDEX, AND SOMETIMES A BIT OF "SURFACE MARKING" CAN OCCUR. MOREOVER, WE ALSO BUILD WHAT WE CALL, "SHEATH SYSTEMS". THE UTILITARIAN OPTIONS YOU SEE ON OUR SYSTEMS MAKE THEM MUCH MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE, EVERYDAY, BASIC ECONOMY SHEATH WHICH SIMPLY "HOLDS YOUR KNIFE". YOU CAN PURCHASE AN ECONOMY KYDEX SHEATH ANYWHERE. WHAT WE BUILD FOR YOU IS MUCH DIFFERENT

 WE HAVE DESIGNED/BUILT MANY OF OUR CUSTOM SHEATHS , SHEATH SYSTEMS, AND KNIFE AND SHEATH SYSTEMS OVER THE YEARS. THEY ARE NOW IN THE HANDS OF OUR CUSTOMERS, ALL OVER THE GLOBE.  ITS WHAT WE DO.  AND WE DO IT  EVERY DAY!  IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING MORE IN A CUSTOM KYDEX OR LEATHER OVER KYDEX SHEATH. SOMETHING WELL TESTED AND GUARANTEED " FIELD AND COMBAT PROVEN" (BECAUSE MOST CUSTOM  SHEATHS OUT THERE ARE NOT PROVEN). WE CAN FURNISH UPON REQUEST, AS MANY TESTIMONIALS AS YOU CAN POSSIBLY READ. MANY FROM SPECIAL OPERATIONS SOLDIERS. WE RECEIVE THEM EVERY DAY.   IF U ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TOUGHER BUT LIGHT WEIGHT, MORE DEPENDABLE,  MORE UTILITY AND OPTIONS FOR CARRY.  OUR UNIQUE, ONE OF A KIND WILDERNESS READY CUSTOM BUILT  KYDEX AND LEATHER OVER KYDEX SHEATH SYSTEMS, MAY BE JUST WHAT THE DOC ORDERED.  WE REALIZE THAT FINDING AN EXPERIENCED KYDEX SHEATH BUILDER WITH A VERIFIABLE AND STELLAR TRACK RECORD, CAN BE AN EXERCISE IN RELATIVE FUTILITY. THERE ARE SIMPLY NOT MANY OUT THERE. ESPECIALLY BUILDERS WHO DESIGN /BUILD YOUR SHEATH SYSTEM, EXACTLY THE WAY YOU WANT IT. MOST KYDEX SHEATHS ARE wide, heavy, and bulky- pancake style "COOKIE CUTTER" SHEATHS.  MADE QUICKLY- WHERE RETENTION-KNIFE FIT- STYLE- ATTENTION TO DETAIL- ETC , GENERALLY SUFFERS,  IN ORDER TO REDUCE BUILD TIME AND PRODUCTION COSTS.  MATERIALS USED IN MAKING MOST OF THESE SHEATHS IS USUALLY LOWER GRADE. AND YOU CAN'T  TELL ANY OF THIS BY LOOKING AT A PHOTO OF THE SHEATH !!!.  YOU REALLY SHOULD COMPARE.                                                                           ***  MOST SOLDIERS QUICKLY LEARN THE REAL BENEFITS AND CRITICAL IMPORTANCE OF A STRONG, ATTENTION TO DETAIL SHEATH SYSTEM, THAT IS SUPERIOR IN THE AREAS OF FIT- KNIFE RETENTION- BUILD QUALITY, AND UTILITY.  NOT TO MENTION, THEY SHOULD ALSO  BE MORE COMPACT AND LIGHTER IN WEIGHT!  WHICH IS WHY WE RARELY IF EVER BUILD "PANCAKE STYLE" SHEATHS, LIKE MOST OTHER MAKERS REGULARLY PRODUCE. WE CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH: MOST PANCAKE STYLE SHEATHS ARE SIMPLY MUCH WIDER, HEAVIER, AND BULKIER, THAN OUR LIGHTER, SLIMMER, AND TOUGH "TACO- FOLD OVER" STYLE SHEATH SYSTEMS THAT WE DESIGN AND BUILD FOR OUR CUSTOMERS.   THE OVERALL DESIGN OF YOUR SHEATH SYSTEM IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE QUALITY WITH WHICH IT IS BUILT.  FOR EXAMPLE, WE CAN GIVE YOU MORE WAYS/OPTIONS OF CARRYING YOUR SHEATH, THAN MOST OTHER MAKERS. ITS QUALITIES LIKE THIS AND OTHERS, THAT FOLKS GENERALLY DO NOT CONSIDER WHEN SEARCHING FOR A CUSTOM SHEATH MAKER. IN FACT, ALOT OF FOLKS WILL GO FOR THE "CHEAPER PRICED", QUICKLY MADE SHEATHS, ON SAY, EBAY, ONLY TO REALIZE LATER THAT THEY CHOSE POORLY.  SO, PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME, BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW, THAT NOT ALL KYDEX SHEATHS ARE MADE THE SAME. HERE AT YHCO WE DO NOT SIMPLY "MAKE SHEATHS".  RATHER, WE BUILD, CUSTOM SHEATH SYSTEMS, THAT CAN GREATLY ENHANCE/AUGMENT YOUR CAPABILITIES/EFFECTIVENESS, IN THE FIELD.
OUR SHEATHS START AT ABOUT $70. (FOR A MILITARY GRADE SHEATH WITH NO BELT CLIP). IT TAKES US ABOUT 3 HRS TO BUILD THIS BASIC RIG.  We have spent the better part of the last 20 years, designing/building custom sheath systems for military personnel, law enforcement officers, government operators, avid outdoorsmen, survivalists, bushcrafters etc..  AND, WE HAVE A STELLAR REPUTATION.  PLEASE, BE SAFE OUT THERE GUYS.

ANSWERS TO SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ORDERING

#1. HOW LONG WILL I WAIT FOR MY SHEATH SYSTEM

YHCO Leather Elite- Survival- 7 carry configurations

WHEN YOU PURCHASE A YELLOW HAWK, YOU ARE PURCHASING  HIGH SPEED, LOW DRAG, NO JOKE, EXPERIENCE. THE BEST OF THE BEST. IT GOES WITH THE TERRITORY GUYS. OUR SHEATH SYSTEMS ARE VERY POPULAR AND WE BUILD ALOT OF THEM FOR CLIENTS. AT PRESENT OUR BUILD TIME IS 10, SOMETIMES 12 WEEKS or so.  AND WE DO THIS FULL TIME! THIS TYPE OF QUALITY-CUSTOM BUILT DESIGN, TECHNIQUES AND UTILITARIAN  OPTIONS DOES TAKE SOME TIME TO DESIGN AND BUILD.   YOU CANNOT ACQUIRE SYSTEMS LIKE THIS ANYWHERE ELSE.  AND YES, THERE ARE SOME "COPIES" OUT THERE. HOWEVER, IF YOU COMPARE, THOSE OTHER COPIES ARE NOT YELLOW HAWKS!  NOW, we do have a "FAST TRACK" PROGRAM , (we will put in the O.T.) for clients who cannot wait.  This will chop the time down to 8 ish weeks or less.  We cater to the caliber of outdoorsman, military operator, survivalist, bushcrafter, and the like, who are dead serious about their weapons (in this case, knives), tools, and how to carry/deploy them in the quickest, most effective and safe manner possible.  

#2. DO I HAVE TO SEND IN MY KNIFE ?

MOST OF THE TIME, YES.  HOWEVER, PLZ ASK US ABOUT HOLDING ONTO YOUR KNIFE UNTIL WE NEED IT.   BUT, WE DO NEED YOUR KNIFE. THERE ARE MANY NEW MAKERS OUT THERE DOING THIS PART TIME. HOWEVER, WE DO IT FULL TIME AND WE HAVE BEEN DESIGNING AND BUILDING SHEATHS IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER, FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS. TRUST US WHEN WE SAY, EVEN PRODUCTION RUN KNIVES CAN DIFFER FROM LOT TO LOT.  THERE ARE SOME EXCEPTIONS, IE. THE BECKER BK7. OR THE TOPS TAHOMA FIELD KNIFE. SO PLZ ASK.  WE DO HAVE A WIDE VARIETY OF PRODUCTION KNIVES HERE IN THE SHOP THAT WE CAN USE TO MOLD YOUR SYSTEM, BUT HAVING YOUR KNIFE WILL ALLOW US TO GAIN OUR FAMOUS "PERFECT FIT, RETENTION, AND FINISH". THIS IS SOMETHING WE ARE WELL KNOWN FOR (actually we guarantee you all 3), BECAUSE IT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT BY FAR, FOR MAKERS TO MASTER.  YOU SIMPLY CANNOT SEE IT IN A PHOTO, SO YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT MOVING FORWARD.  NOW, IF YOU HAVE A CUSTOM KNIFE OF ANY DEGREE, EVEN A "STOCK REMOVAL OR MID TECH" KNIFE, WE WILL NEED YOUR KNIFE. IF YOU WANT THINGS DONE RIGHT.  Please oil your blade before sending it.  

#3. WHERE DO I SEND MY KNIFE ETC?

AFTER YOU AND DOUG ARE FINISHED TEXTING AND YOU ARE BOTH ON THE SAME PAGE AS TO WHAT YOU WANT (TEXTING PROVIDES AN ACCURATE VISUAL RECORD OF THE CONVERSATION), DOUG WILL GIVE YOU A TOTAL, PLUS SHIPPING.  AT THIS JUNCTURE, YOU MIGHT SIMPLY WANT TO CONSIDER, EXACTLY WHAT IT IS THAT YOUR KNIFE AND NEW SHEATH SYSTEM WILL BE ABLE TO DO FOR U.  AND PLEASE, TAKE THE ADVICE OF MOST OF OR CLIENTS. DO NOT GET HUNG UP ON THE IDEA THAT YOUR KNIFE MAY NOT HAVE COST AS MUCH AS YOUR SHEATH SYSTEM. CONSIDER RATHER, THAT THE SHEATH SYSTEM EXTENDS YOUR KNIFE'S ABILITIES, AND CAN DO SO MUCH MORE FOR YOU THAN YOUR KNIFE CAN DO ON ITS OWN.  YOU NOW HAVE A KNIFE/SHEATH SYSTEM FROM YELLOW HAWK CUSTOMS.  IF YOU SHOULD LOSE YOUR KNIFE, SIMPLY BUY ANOTHER, POP IT IN YOUR SHEATH, AND DRIVE ON!  HERE IS OUR INFORMATION:  R.DOUGLAS WILSON- 25A PLANK RD SHREWSBURY PA 17361. Ph # 443-315-6033. AGAIN, TEXTING IS PREFERRED. PLEASE ASK DOUG ABOUT PAYMENT OPTIONS

#4. CAN I HOLD ON TO MY KNIFE UNTIL ITS NEEDED FOR THE BUILD?

YES YOU CAN. WE WANT THE PROCESS TO BE AS TROUBLE/PAIN FREE AS POSSIBLE.  IF YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR YOUR NEW RIG, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE WITHOUT YOUR KNIFE. IF YOU WANT TO HOLD ON TO YOUR BLADE, DOUG NEEDS TO KNOW IN ADVANCE SO HE CAN RECORD IT ON YOUR ORDER.  THIS IS IMPORTANT.  WHEN YOUR BUILD DAY NEARS, DOUG WILL TEXT OR CALL AND ASK YOU TO SEND YOUR KNIFE/KNIVES.  FURNISHING OUR CLIENTS WITH THIS LEVEL OF CUSTOM WORK, YHCO HAS THE PROCESS DOWN TO A SCIENCE. COMMUNICATION IS KEY. 

#5. IS YELLOW HAWK CUSTOMS OUTDOORS A REPUTABLE COMPANY?

WE HAVE A STELLAR CUSTOMER SATISFACTION RATING. WE RECEIVE GLOWING TESTIMONIALS ON A DAILY BASIS. AND, WE HAVE BEEN AT THIS LONGER THAN ANY OTHER BUILDER WE KNOW OF.  INCLUDING THE "BLADE SHOW" CROWD. WE HAVE BEEN AT THIS NEARLY 20 YEARS. WE DOUBT YOU WILL FIND ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN BUILDING CUSTOM KYDEX SHEATH SYSTEMS LONGER.  WE WORK WITH SEVERAL VERY POPULAR KNIFE MAKERS/COMPANIES.  MIKE AND JIM STEWART-BARK RIVER KNIVES. LT WRIGHT- LT WRIGHT KNIVES. PETER KOHLER- DARK TIMBER CUSTOM KNIVES. MIKE WALLACE- WALLACE EDGED TOOLS. CHRIS TANNER- PM101. SAM FARNWORTH-JINJANINJA OUTDOORS. BRENTON GOOD- QUICKHATCH KNIVES. ETC ETC ETC....   SEVERAL OF OUR SYSTEMS CAN BE SEEN CARRIED BY CONTESTANTS OF HISTORY CHANNEL'S "ALONE" SURVIVAL T.V. SHOW.

These photos represent 3 of our most popular designs/options

QT-1. This sheath system is built for my Quickhatch Trapper 5.5" blade. One of Our most popular sheath system configurations. A completely custom rig, with effective, high quality/ utilitarian options, in a hand built, CUSTOM SHEATH SYSTEM built specifically for your knife. No one does quite what we do with kydex, leather, and options. Which greatly enhance your capabilities in the field. And, you tell us exactly which options u want on it, by texting Doug and telling him exactly what u want #443-315-6033. Unless u just want a very simple sheath. We can do that too. This system represents One of the Strongest and lightest dangler/ Tek Lok belt clip- systems around- Full grain, leather or scuba webbing belt loop. Our fenix EO5, LD02, OR E-12 tactical lighting system - functions several different ways. Quality Misch metal ferro rod system. well secured SUUNTO compass, Live Fire tin. Fine diamond sharpener, etc. This system is over $200, and 10 hrs work

Just imagine your knife in this rig, any color combos u want.

 

QT-2. This is our Necker/Belt carry system. Wear it as a necker, or use a Tek Lok for belt carry in any one of several carry positions. You actually get several carries in one sheath. We have a plethora of different colors/patterns of kydex. See the Intro/Colors/Patterns Videos on the "about Us" Page. Spend some time on the photo galleries. There are a few different Necker/Belt carry systems shown. We also have a streamlined Flip Out Misch metal Ferro Rod (throws hotter sparks) system we can add, which does away with the ferro rod holder. The rod flips out and u use the sheath as the handle to strike the rod. Very convenient. VERY TOUGH!

  1. *** Every one of our kydex or leather over kydex sheath systems (YHCO- LEATHER ELITE SERIES) is built entirely by hand and bombproof.  They will literally last generations. We have yet to have anyone wear one out.    Heck, check out all the Youtube reviews.  Just search- Yellow Hawk Customs.  Pick any color or color/pattern combo u desire. These systems will work for just about any necker sized knife.  Base price, Approx. $89. Sometimes less.

QT-3. The S.E.R.E. 1 survival sheath system. This is just one of our more comprehensive sheath systems. Built for longer, tougher blades. Just check out the photo galleries for more examples. This sheath system has a Tabby Dangler (leather belt loop can be used as a strop) and a tek lok , and/or Molle lok clips on the back. It has our Fenix E12 tactical light system for LARGER, LONGER blades. Fine diamond rod sharpener, esee accessory pouch with survival tin, quality misch metal ferro rod and suunto compass, survival altoids tin and holder on back, Baldric carry options and Beachin tactical sling made by Jacob Peterson at the Preppers Bunker, etc.

  1.  *** $300 plus. Includes everything you see but the knife and sling. Yes, even the fenix e12 tactical light, diamond rod sharpener, etc.  Consider this:  All these high quality options (they work, and they work very well), materials, build time, and utility you receive in one compact sheath system. At the lightest weight possible.  Guaranteed!  All of our sheath systems designs,materials, options, etc have been thoroughly field tested. Over, and over, and over again.  If a design, material, or option does not perform well during our tests, or long term in the field, we do not use it. Period! You can bet your life on our sheath systems!  Hopefully u will never have to.
