A Serious Fast-Draw Sheath
Many of you recognize the KA-BAR fast-draw sheath I have used for a while now.
A local III Patriot has built a similar model, featured in the video above and image below. The hard part for building a fast-draw sheath is making it tight enough to securely hold your knife until it is time to draw. I have several such sheaths in my collection from notable leather shops that simply don't get the job done. If you choose a fast-draw sheath, which I define as having no retention straps, you can't afford for that blade to bounce out of your sheath when you run or tumble.
This sheath hits the sweet-spot! Watch the video again - I dropped it from nearly 18 inches and again from 12 - and the full-sized KA-BAR didn't budge. I practiced with it and found it to be lightning fast on the draw.
Do you have a need for a fast-draw sheath? Drop me an email and let's see if we can get this Patriot to take orders! Not a KA-BAR guy? Maybe we can get him to build for other knives...
