ISO source for knife guards for a Ken Onion?

Does anyone know of a manufacturer that retails knife guards for the Ken Onion (Shun Classic) knives made by Kershaw?

They have a non-standard shape which does not work with my 8" edge guards.
I have one collecting dust right now but would like to keep it in my knife roll, and i absolutely refuse to have an unguarded blade in a sleeve.
For those wondering, it is an oddly shaped curved sheep's foot knife as you can see here (note the obstruction of the bolster-grip):


If there is none, i suppose i will take the dremel to one of my many Messermeister knife guards and grind-out a fitting shape. But that is a last resort.

I use Messermeisters as well. Why don't you try writing Shun?

Wusthof makes generic blade guards out of plastic on the cheap ($5-6). One of those plus five minutes on a hacksaw, and you'd be left with a fairly inexpensive solution.

Google reveals they are called "Wusthof Knife Life Edge Protectors."

Good morning.

Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, we do make a Ken Onion sheath. It is sold online at various retailers. Im including the link from Google, where you can find these sheaths. If you have further questions, please dont hesitate to ask.

google[DOT]com/search?hl=en&q=shun+ken+onion+sheaths
I found some, rather bulky and $10 a piece:

In the end it would seem I might just craft my own.
not a very common item it would seem

Kind of flashy to match the Onion design I suppose.
