Hey guys,
I own a AW Woodlore profile knife which cherish very much. The sheath that it came with is fine but I’d like a „neck-sheath“ and a normal belt sheath for it. Do you think the Woodlore leather sheaths would fit my knife?
does anyone have a lefty Woodlore knife sheath spare or the neck sheath maybe?

Can you post a picture from directly above the spine and an angle from the butt looking along the spine and I‘ll let you know.

It’s doubtful though as Alan’s handles are usually much thicker.

I think the AW Woodlore profile knife is dimensionally the same as the Woodlore there is a profile picture of one below in Similar Threads.

Here is my Alan Wood Woodlore profile next to the current RM knife. Deffo won’t fit. The RM knife is massively thinner. They no longer make the sheaths that fit the Alan Wood Woodlore.

If I could see the handle profile, I’d know right away if the sheath could be formed to fit. Not even the Alan Wood Woodlore fits into the current sheaths. I just tried.

Not clear what sheath the OP has with the knife, as he wants a neck and a belt sheath I am guessing he has a shoulder sheath, which may be possible to convert to a belt sheath with the addition of a dangler. it may not look pretty though.

You can do both with this. Really versatile sheath. I put an adjustable slide knot on it so it can be worn as a baldrick or neck.

Thank you for your kind replies!
i assume they won’t fit but I took the pictures anyway so please have look. I have a normal belt sheath but in addition I’d like the Woodlore sheaths if they’d fit or I find old Woodlore knife sheaths maybe on the secondary market.

You know what. I reckon they’d fit. The palm swell isn’t as prominent on yours as they sometimes are. They can be worked to stretch slightly without too much bother. Just pushing in and taking out a few times would do it.
