Tale of Knives gear thread
on: August 03, 2023, 02:29:24 AM
So after a cursory search and not finding anything about this leather crafter I thought why not start a thread.

Got this one from my Daughter for Fathers Day but have not used before today because Challenges.

Surprisingly comfortable considering how heavy the copper is.

The flap version is the way to go imo. Insulates your body from the tool and makes it so the exact fit isn’t as necessary. Able to run different MTs more easily.

I also have been watching their work on IG but I haven't ever pulled the trigger on a sheath yet.  I'm not sure I ever will though, if I'm honest.  I really do like the concept, but I just don't ever see me wearing it.

Still, if I see enough people enjoying them I may have to give them a shot and prove myself wrong yet again.

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

Not everyone can carry a belt sheath like this.

My job as a truck driver means nobody gives it a second thought except to say how they like it. Which happens pretty often.

Forgot to say how putting the MT, Flashlight, Keys and Pen on the belt frees up so much pocket space.

Freeing pocket space is not a good thing.  I would only end up filling my pockets with something else. :facepalm:

Ok so a month of everyday carry with this sheath.

12 to 14 hours a day at work driving a gravel train. So lots of sitting, climbing on and around trailers, shoveling and various other tasks. Also on around the house doing country home kinda work.

Still looks brand new except a little patina on the key ring holder clip and the leather taking shape to the belt around the loops. Both great things imo.

Forget it’s back there even with it being a bit heavy. Copper looks great but it’s thicc.

So hurt my back a little bit. Belt carry was out of the question for a couple weeks.

Still I was curious how much this thing weighs fully loaded. Take account of the copper flashlight and pen bump it up some in weight but also cool factor.



For comparison here is just a Surge in a leather sheath.



Because America here is a Smith M&P Compact in my favorite holster.

Only four more ounces for the full set up over the Surge and sheath combo.

Was expecting it would be more.
