    IWB Deep Concealment Sheath for an ESEE-4

    Howdy,

    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:








    All angles of the sheath:





    What you can see from the outside and what's on the inside of the sheath:






    Thanks for looking,

    Eli

    Looks great! I would be interested in something like this, but I would need the ability to tuck in a shirt between the clip and sheath. Kinda like my Crossbreed holster. Any chance you could make something like that?

    Hells yeah!

    Ummm I mean yes. Haven't seen a CrossBreed (have heard the name) but I can stuff this deeper in the pants for a lanyard pull too, I can turn the first piece of Kydex upside down, elongate it and make it a really tight "U" shape so you could tuck it in between the two. After making this first one I started coming up with some other ideas too. I'll go look that holster up now.

    Awesome! Those smooth edges make the sheath look especially high quality.

    The secret is that the clip attaches to the sheath at a lower point allowing you to tuck down between the sheath and the clip. I'm sure the Crossbreed website has pics that show this so you know what I mean.

    Okay check this out..... Godspeed Supertuck..... looks the same right?

    44Hunter.. I almost said it was for you then I thought... if it's IWB I probably shouldn't even say who it belongs to... "Sheathmaker Client Priveledge"?

    "The secret is that the clip attaches to the sheath at a lower point allowing you to tuck down between the sheath and the clip. I'm sure the Crossbreed website has pics that show this so you know what I mean."

    What you're describing here is exactly what I pictured like a Galco "Sky-Marshall" holster... when I looked at the Crossbreed it had clips spaced apart from the holster.... a couple inches away on either side.... but we're on the same page though.

    Thanks for the compliments and I'm glad you guy's like it. I'm going to start messing around with the Dremel now and see what I can do with it..... I've always heard guy's talk about using one but I only use mine to polish Micarta, steel etc. Got a bunch of stuff still in the works and I'll post projects as they come to fruition.

    It is a great looking sheath. I like the "melt" work done in rounding it out. Have you thought about maybe backing the sheath with leather or something where it comes into contact with skin? Or maybe some kind of moisture wicking material.

    My whole thinking was that I'd like to be able to carry a larger knife when i go places. Eli brought my words to life with this sheath.

    Guys just because he dosent have something on his website dosent mean it can be done. Just toss him your ideas and he'll work with you. Godspeed has my business from here on. Eli is great to deal with.
