A member here asked me to make a "conceal carry" sheath for his ESEE-4 and while I hadn't made any of these I already had some ideas in mind for it so here it is. Gonna be carried at the 5:30 mark and a t-shirt will cover this no problem, I don't like "J" clips for this kind of thing cause I've drawn a holstered pistol before with a a Kydex IWB pistol holster I had.... gotta be really strong (esp. since I warrantee them for life) and the loop had to be closed imho.
This is my first time taking a "dremel" to a sheath and it was inspired by Sig Sauers Custom Shop where they offer a service called "Melt"... basically they grind off every sharp corner and piece of a pistol so it won't snag on anything. Same idea here I rounded all of the edges, the thumb-ramp (Kydex) is only protruding away from the body and every part of the inside is smooth.... even the smooth side of the Chicago Screws and the eyelets so anything rough/sharp is facing away from the user.
I'm not a fan of "Taco" sheaths but I've been making a bunch of them lately... pretty slim and it works great for an application like this. I use really thick Kydex anyways but it's especially important with an IWB sheath since this'll take alot of pressure and all of the Chicago Screws have Red Loctite that I let cure (72hrs) before moving anything so none of this is going anywhere. Something new for me so I just thought I'd share and see what y'all think.
Here's some pics of the knife in sheath:

Thanks for looking,
