    I don't think I have much need to EDC a fixed blade that size. But I would if I could.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    Entire thing, from idea to finished product, about 5 hours. It took a lot longer to lay it out and figure out the welt then I would have thought. It was the first time I skived leather to make room for the handle. I used mostly 8-9 ounce leather from Tandy. I picked the best piece they had in stock.

    Thank you very much sir!

    Thank you!

    You'd be surprised what can be done with it if you have it around.

    Does it retain its shape when the knife is out? The biggest concern I'd have with an IWB leather sheath is it bending while the knife is out and the blade then cutting through the side upon re-sheathing.

    I EDC the 16 and use it all the time.

    It's only been two days now, but yes. I have no problem with the welt collapsing. It re sheaths easily.

    The sheath still needs some water protection, and a little more edge treatment, but im enjoying carrying it.

    In the belt:

    here, my belt is actually pretty tight, you can see the welt stands tall and the leather isn't collapsing.

    Man, this was genius... I tried this sheath in my pocket. Unreal. So comfortable, and its almost always covered by my shirt. To boot, it gives the outward appearance of a pocket knife, phone or even a pager (remember those days?).

    That looks great. I would love a sheath like that for my 14.

    I like mine for neck carry as it is so light weight. It's easy to mod the sheath.

    Very innovative thinking!! I am going to have to draw up a template for something like that. I CCW inside the waist and that looks like a really nice idea. Good on ya!! Great job!

    Hey UpNorth, thats a pretty neat idea. I like it.

    Thanks Balding.

    For those times I don't feel like it, or don't have to carry IWB, I made this one up too!

    Its right hand carry, obviously on the belt, and the loop on the bottom fits a 3/8 fire rod.

    Have i mentioned the 16 is just pure awesomeness!?
