Many years ago, I sniped a Buck Custom Shop 903 from eBay. I had to set the alarm for 3 or 4 in the morning and get the final bid in 30 seconds before the bidding closed.
Most Buck 903's are highly embellished with engraving, etching, and gold fill. This one is a plain blade. I bought it thinking I might actually use it. 420 HC blade.

Years passed, no way to carry it without a sheath. Many custom leather folks will make a sheath, but you will need to ship the knife to the leather worker.

About three weeks ago, while looking on eBay for something, I stumbled on the eBay store for CC Leathers. At the very bottom of the list of Buck Knives they made sheathes for, there it was.
A sheath for a Buck 903. So I looked at the small photo, I can't tell much from the photo and decided to gamble. Slightly less than $50

The sheath arrived today. It's simple and high quality. There is extra leather next to the blade edge for protecting the stitching.

As far as EDC, It's a bit large. I may carry it at the rural property.

My, that knife is stunning, but the sheath is so well executed. Thick and heavy. Pretty.

Do you have to protect the blade from leather corrosion or does the leather have a special finish?
Congrats.

The blade is high carbon 420. Stainless steel.
I won't store the knife in the sheath.
Sheath is oiled/waxed.
The blade is extremely hard to photograph. Mirror polish stainless steel.

That is nice! I have been casually shopping for a Bowie to go with my SAA and Sharps. A plain blade buck like that would do.
