Need Knife Sheath help please

    I bought this little hunter because I just flat out liked it. I really like the blade profile and I thought it could be a handy size fixed blade to have in a back pocket or such.

    But I'm completely clueless as to how the sheath is carried. It's kydex and the leather "collar" wraps around it. I suppose you could thread a narrow (like 1") belt through and horizontal carry it but that doesn't seem right. I'm at a complete loss. Would someone please enlighten me?

    I'd also appreciate any practical carry suggestions. I think it's a nice size for EDC.

    I would horizontal carry in a cross draw fashion...

    That sheath is for horizontal carry unless you wear suspenders OR have pack straps to attach. Small of the back might be a good place if you are in walking mode vs. driving.

    But as I say, it's a very narrow opening for a belt. Although it would probably work well on MOLLE gear. I really need to figure out a stealthy way to carry it. Any help there?

    I'm thinking about taking a Sticky holster and wrapping the fabric around a pouch holster I had made for it. (pic in a sec.)

    Cut your self another belt strap on that's bigger and replace the other to fit your belt but you want a tight fit so the blade will come out and not slide the while rig when you need it.

    ...... this would be the quickest, my guess is that one was tailor made for a dress belt. You could also get someone handy with kydex to bend you a vertical belt loop if you wished. Depending on who made the sheath the hole spacing may match up to a small tek-lock or similar. There are also some other clips and loops available that you could attach for vertical carry.

    I get all my sheath making parts and accessories from...

    Thank you all for the information.

    Andy, thanks. I'll be checking out that site when I leave here.

    Here's pics of the pouch I had made:

    What the heck is wrong with the leather one you made?!?! It looks great to me!
    Yeah, that kydex belt loop looks very cool but very useless also, too small.

    I like Kydex but too many of the makers think that the knife can't come out of their sheath but I wouldn't trust falling down a hill with some of them when you are 30 miles from no where. I bought a Kydex for my BK16 and I sure as hell wouldn't trust it not to come out, paid $50-$60 for it also, still kicking myself. I am going to have to purchase another one but this time I will ensure I get not only a tight fit but has a security strap that goes across the handle using a strong snap.

    EDIT: Speaking of Kydex... Any recommendations for someone who makes sheaths?

    If you wet the leather strap, you can insert a much wider belt, even a full sized rigger's belt and when it dries, it will hold the form.

    You could check out sage wood gear he can make you any thing you want for any knife or gun but may be more than your knife cost.
