Happy New Year everybody!!!
I made a new model Iíd like to hear your thoughts about..
The idea was to make a sheath that is completely modular and can be set-up differently each time for any specific task. The sheath had to be strong, safe, reliable, weather-resistant and easy to use and maintain in the field. It should fit all kinds accessories and attachements one could need or want for a variety of uses.
After some try-outs and prototypes I believe this one is good enough to show here.
I only have some crappy pics cause the lighting is dim and itís freezing cold, but I will add more to my blog later on. Itíll give you the idea for now.
This is the basic sheath:
It has a halftanned leather pouch and a removable kydex liner. Thereís a drainage hole in the bottom of the sheath. In the bottom sits a Chicago screw that secureís the kydex inside the pouch. On the side thereís a row of eyelets that will fit all kinds of accessories. The kydex is light coloured to make visual inspection easier, and to have a clear aimingpoint when resheathing the knife. The kydex is cut under an angle to have a larger opening for resheating, and to have something to pull on when removing the liner.
Features in a row:
It can be set-up with a teklok in horizontal, vertical and canted positions.
It can be setup with a beltloop for high, med or low carry.
It will fit all pouches in the Maxpedition style ĎSingle Pouchí or custom made pouches.
It will attach to molle gear and it can be carried upside down on a chestrig.
Itís easy to attach a length of cord. Thereís always a free hole.
It has a very slim profile
Firesteelloop can be mounted inside or outside the sheath profile.
It can be carried horizontal on the belt using the loops
One pouch could fit many liners for different knives.
As an example. One pouch could fit liners for the F-1, RC-4, Bravo-1, and all other knives that, a bit more or less, have the same profile and length.
I hope you like it.
Comments are very welcome..
Happy New Year !!
