    Gentlemen, are the kydex sheaths from Survive, Teklok compatible?

    Thanks Chiral. I'll add that when using a TL (or any other attachment setup), you'll want to either use washers between the screws and slots or flip the post so that it's on the outside. Small or conical screw heads can deform the slots..

    How long on those 4.1 sheaths? It's like I have a rocket and zero fuel here!

    I know it is more expensive and may not be what folks are looking for, but leatherman here on the forums offers leather sheaths for some S!K models: http://www.armoralleather.com/orders.xhtml

    You could also contact another sheath-maker, kydex or leather, to work something out. It's rough having an awesome new tool and no easy way to carry it. Hopefully Kiah can kick up the pace ;)

    Thank ya brother! And yes! Thanks to Kiah I am currently getting them all patterned out and when I do I'll list them out and hopefully have some ready made basic leather sheaths. :)

    Thanks Kiah.

    Leatherman, nothing personal but I kinda like the kydex sheaths. I'm looking to strap on a single mag pouch, load it full of survival goodies and then be able to strap on a knife AND the kitchen sink with it!

    ALSO, anybody have some 4.1 black or camo Micarta slabs they want to sell or trade out for?

    Got a fun solve for leather where I wanted to carry my 3.5 on my shoulder strap with a TL. Once finished I'll post up some photos.

    Copy that C.G! I'd like to wait until they have the sheaths also.

    Hope doesn't always play well with reality. S!K should have the majority by Monday with the exception of one color that I had to order more materials for. I know updates being pushed back is annoying, but doing what I can.
