I can do a sheath for you Joel.    Strap to your leg,  clip on your boot,  paddle/pancake style.   Lots of ways to go.

That's a fancy old stabber you have there,  very nice.

I will send it along with the 1908 clone once I get the real one in and check for size

I'm thinking boot clip but something that looks old

Of course,  Kydex and nylon just wouldn't do.

I've got an old one made in Germany. It had a young boars foot on it that was half rotten and I swapped it for a piece of deer antler.
