I have to make a knife that will be used by a scuba diver, does anyone have any suggestions on type of handle material and type of sheath?
Thanks,
Paul

Well, not to obvious about it but synthetic reather then wood would make sense and the bright orange G10 seems to be popular.

I like that suggestion. G10 would be as tough as anything, almost, and the orange would be very visible, which might be a good thing down there. Post a photo when you get it finished, OK?

I would go with kydex. I will hold it and you can make sure there is a way for the water to drain out.

Kydex would be the only way to go, IMO. That would do the job best, it seems.
