 Try a saddlery shop-especially if you can find one who makes saddles . They often have offcuts-as do upholsterers but there offcuts are often not heavy enough for sheaths

Im looking for thin leather really, not that keen on the really stiff, thick stuff.

any pics of the knives?
 
you could always make your own leather if there is a spare caw/horse/kangaroo laying around

I will put some pics up this weekend. I can get deer skin, but it seems a bit thin.

give the deer skin ago you never know it might be good.....kangaroo skin is thinner lighter and stronger than cow hide but you can get more out of one cow than you can one kangaroo......
