Kydex sheath for my new bark river aurora LT.

#1
Hello people,

I am new to the forum and I hope I'll remain long in this wonderful community you created. It is a pleasure for me to join such a great concentration of knife experts.

I just bought my first Bark river, and I chose the aurora LT model in 3v with gold and blue elder burl handle.
Now, I love the leather sheath the knife came with. But I also like making my own custom sheaths as I've always done in the past with my other knives. I was concerned about one thing and I'd like some experts to give me some advice about it.
I am worried the elder burl can get consumed after a while with the retention caused by the kydex sheath, when the knife gets in and out. Should I be worried at all? Can I start making my sheath, or should I stick with the leather one? How hard is the elder burl? Does it have a good wear resistance? Moreover, should I also be concerned about the semistainless capabilities of the CPM 3V? If I use the knife for wet situations or cutting it through moist wood, should I always be careful that it stays dry like a carbon steel blade?
Thanky you!

Hi, thank you for your answer! I don't have the knife with me right now cause I am out of Italy. The pic attached is from the internet. Yes, the wood is stabilized. therefore very strong, I have read that every stabilized wood is more resistant than a normal wood, but still I am scared the retention of the kydex sheath is going to scratch it or even consume the stabilized wood with an extended use. Thank you!
