My BK11 has bounced around from sheath to sheath over the years. The sheath used more often and currently, is the sheath issued for the Esee 3. I've. worn this sheath with the molle back system, the clip plate as a boot knife, and the bare sheath as a neck knife. When worn inverted as a neck knife, I use an small elastic cord looped in the bottle opener notch for added retention.
Very nice! A welt, plus very precise stamping and stitching. Those are the things that make a project look "professionally made." It also looks as if you used copper rivets and burrs, and that copper colored snap looks good with the brown dye you used. Nice!
Thanks for the compliments. Yes, I always build all my sheaths with a full welt. Copper rivet was used in the center of the stitching line on the belt loop. There is another copper rivet for the strap so it can be rotated out of the way so you can't accidentally cut the strap. I keep all my knives razor sharp. The sheath is fully lined with thinner veg tan so the rivets can't scratch the knife. All hand stitched using 1mm Tiger thread. The chevron was stitched using #69 thread on a 15-91
