Made of premium full grain leather.
Made from the highest of seven possible grades. Vegetable and environmentally friendly tanned in traditional pit tanning. The world-famous brown tone is achieved using traditional techniques: each MK-9 leather sheath receives four to six hand-applied oil treatments. This ensures structural integrity and underlines the natural structure and appearance of the leather. Each piece of leather reacts differently to the application. Hand treatment gives each leather sheath the individual attention it needs to achieve an optimal result.
The black leather sheath of the MK-8 is carefully dyed using aniline dye. This penetrates deeply into the leather and produces a transparent and abrasion-resistant colour. The colour nuances characteristic of unpainted leather are retained and make each piece unique.
The final treatment of the surface protects the leather from dirt and moisture. Special care and craftsmanship already during tanning and later refinement enables the leather to develop a patina full of character even after years of use.
