    Try a small piece of PVC pipe. It gets soft and pliable with a little heat from a heat gun or hold it over a grill. It will burn if your not careful. I did this with a different knife that came with a crappy sheath. Spray paint sticks to it too. But that leather sheath is sweeter!

    You maybe correct. ESEE could cross market these as steak knives. ‍☠️

    @Strigidae Who made your sheath? Would you mind snapping a photo sheathed with possibly a size comparison? I am still looking for a narrow sheath for neck carry.

    I tried emailing 7 rattles to get one made but haven’t heard anything back yet. He has one “ready to buy” and I don’t really mind the color but it’s not the true “Necker” style.

    Due to time constraint and to save some money. I decided to go a little extreme and repurpose a sheath I could not find a good use for (Holes did not line up on anything..) Because of the previous hole alignment it would hang angled and weird.. SO I enlarged 1 of the holes and added a additional hole at the same level. It now hangs nice and straight and by adding a screw in each hole (previously had only 5 of 8 holes with screws) it has much better and adjustable retention.

    One thing I discovered when drilling was the smaller spacer piece between the outsides had broken in 1 place. So It is sharp inside 1 of the holes.. So I’ll be adding something like shrink tubing or a small thread wrap to either hole.

    Overall thou i am happy with how it turned out.

    Because owning a knife isnt always about survival shelters and feather sticks. Sometimes its about cutting bacon on a fillet at a campground.

    Edit: Thats a dog hair on my fork... awesome.

    Don’t worry! I got a different less flashy sheath in the mail yesterday :) It also hangs a lot nicer from a lanyard.
