The leather sheath of the MK-9 Legacy is made of seven layers of leather, including the keder. After cutting, these are brought to the necessary thickness for the respective component and then carefully sanded and glued by hand.
In addition to embossing the company logos on the back, one of the first steps in the process is to sew on the loop for the diamond knife sharpener from the American manufacturer Eze-Lap in Carson City, Nevada. Made of solid brass, this was already a reliable part of the knife in Part II in the mid-eighties and is again today with the MK-9 Legacy.
In many further work steps, the leather sheath is repeatedly ground and polished and the components of the push button are set. The more than 15 millimeter thick edge is sewn carefully and with a lot of experience. The leg strap is given its distinctive buckle.
