Here’s the knife with the original sheath. Nice knife and nice sheath. It’s a good knife. It has a nice thick D2 tool blade and a full tang. It’s always done what I ask of it, but it came with a leather sheath.
Don’t get me wrong it’s a nice leather sheath. but leather cracks. So I wanted to get something more durable. On/Scene Tactical is the place for aftermarket sheaths. He didn’t have a sheath for my knife so I had to send him the knife and he custom made a sheath for me.
I never bought a separate sheath for a knife before. It cost $35.00, which is a lot of money for just a sheath. Most of my knives cost less than $35.00. The company is located in Canada so you need to fill out a special form at the Post Office. It also took about two months for my new sheath to arrive. This is the sheath I received from On/Scene Tactical. It came with a belt clip that I attached to the sheath and an extra belt loop.
You change the belt clip/loop with the two phillips screws you see. I like clips because I’m more likely to take the knife or gun with me if it’s sheath/holster has a clip. If it’s easy to take, it will usually get taken. I plan on attaching a piece of cordura to the sheath to hold a firesteel. You can see how I did it with my Rat3 here https://hotdogjam.wordpress.com/2009/05/29/fire-steels/.
This seems like a much more rugged set up to me now. It’s a great fit. The knife will stay in the sheath upside down. I knew that the knife would outlive me. Now I have a sheath that should also outlast me. On/Scene Tactical I have good stuff to say about them.
GET OUTSIDE EVERYDAY!!!
