    If you compare my previous pic to this 1 you'll see I put this to work today. This edge held up fine in my opinion. No esee but it still cuts paper and that isn't something I try to be able to do with a knife I use the way I do lol. The blade coating is another story. . . Thats going pretty quick. Now to shine it back up and put this away and get my 4 back out were it belongs lol. 20220129_132335.jpg

    Maybe yall can help. I'm trying to find something for my 4's sheath similar to what the 5 comes with to hang lower off a belt. A leather backer/loop would be ideal. Anyone have any ideas on a quality piece like this?

    No I havnt. I've never seen one carried that way on a belt. Usually when I've seen the molle it's been stuck on a pack of sorts. Anyone have a pic of that setup on a belt?

    I haven't tried it on a 4 yet, but a huge blade like the J2 carries so comfortable with the belt loop of the molle backer, that I'm sure the 4 will be amazing in that regard. When I have a backpack with a waist belt, the J2 carries better than any of the knives with clips that I've had, because it really stays below the waist belt. I like it so much that when cash permits it, I will order mole backs for my 6 and 4, and probably even for the 3. I would have 2 sheaths for each - one with the clip and one with the molle.

    Made way for a future etching on the spine but left the rest of the coating on cause I really don't know what to etch on it. Plus I kinda like the black n silver look. Got different scales coming for it also. 20220130_164627.jpg 20220130_164811.jpg

    Oops I did it again.. Oh wait, wrong thing lol. Modding Monday I guess. Added a couple more etchings to the Harley 4. Unfortunately I had to remove part of the nice patina she had going on but she'll get it back. Still need to put the lanyard and bead back on also. 20220131_180541.jpg 20220131_181205.jpg 20220131_181234.jpg 20220131_181310.jpg 20220131_181253.jpg

    Not Sure this is what your asking about, but I made these mods so I could hump
    my pack while wearing a Knife. Rides under the waist belt a lot better.

    Yeah something like that. I'd found this on the bay and was curious. Of quality. I've never used kydex myself but I gather it would be pretty simple to make this

    Should work fine for you. I needed drop for my waist belt, odds are if I have a Knife,
    I have a Pack, and if I have a Pack, I have a Knife.
    Here's some that I have done.
    Apologies if I am getting off track here............

    It adds more attachment options, so you're not limited to just the spacing it comes with.
