Left handed vs. right handed sheaths

Our horizontal carry sheaths sheaths are intended to be worn horizontally across the lower back with the blade edge facing down (this is sometimes called scout style).

To give you an example: a right handed sheath would attach across the lower back with the blade edge facing down and the handle sticking out to the right side so that the user can reach back with his right hand to grab the knife.

A left handed sheath would attach across the lower back with the blade edge facing down and the handle sticking out to the left side so that the user can reach back with his left hand to grab the knife.

Attachment to the belt

The sheath attaches to the belt using the two snap-off belt loops. The belt goes through the side that is opposite of the one that has snaps.

Compatibility with other knives

We often get questions about whether or not our sheaths will fit knives other than their intended counterparts. It is highly unlikely that you will be able to mix and match our sheaths with other knives besides the ones they are meant to accommodate. All of our sheaths are designed very specifically to the dimensions of the intended knife and 99% of the time a mismatch will result in spots that are too loose, too tight, or in having retention straps that do not shut properly. We do not provide information about the exact dimensions of our sheaths because it isn't as simple as matching the length, thickness, width, etc.

Hedgehog Fire starters

All versions of sheaths that show a Hedgehog Fire starter attachment loop DO include the actual fire starter itself. At this time, Hedgehog Fire Starters are only available for individual sale as replacement units to existing owners of our sheaths. They are not available for individual sale to folks that have not already purchased a sheath from us. This is because we don't manufacture them in very large quantities and need to reserve our limited supply for our existing customers.
