Custom knife sheath around Chicago?

Venturing into the great outdoors throughout Chicagoland. More that just fishing - hiking, biking, nature trails, nature centers, geocaching, sights to see, etc., etc.

Anyone knows of a leathershop around chicago that could make a sheat for a custom knife?
I found few online sellers but I'd rather take my business locally.

Have you checked out old-time shoe repair shops?
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

I bet the guy at Grove shoe repair in Devon in Elk Grove Village could do it. He makes custom orthotics and stuff. A sheath seems like would be kind of a slam dunk.

Too bad you can no longer transport a knife of that stature in Chicago to get it to a sheath shop. London is even worse. :roll:

Reminds me of a great bit of advice I got as a youngster.

"Sheath thy dagger before you bag her."
Nature and shit.

Called around, got few contact information, requested some quotes. If I go with any of them I'll update with some pics.
Thanks for ideas!
