ESEE3 X-MOD Sheath
This is a Made to Order Product, the Lead Time is 3-4 weeks
The X-MOD Knife Sheath is the most advanced leather knife sheath on the market. When we set out to design this knife sheath, we focused on improving all aspects of using a knife sheath in the Backcountry. The design is ambidextrous, and completely modular. You can set up the sheath in ANY configuration you would like. The sheath body is made from Top Grade 9.5oz Wickett & Craig leather, and utilizes a rigid composite welt (the middle layer of a knife sheath). This rigid welt keeps the sheath from flexing, something that is common with all leather knife sheaths. The knife is retained by 2 Precision Molded Kydex Retention Panels that are attached to the upper part of the sheath with machine screws. These kydex panels allow for what is called "Passive Retention", meaning there is no component that you need to unfasten, or unsnap (such as a retention strap) in order to draw the knife from the sheath.
This sheath is compatible with the ESEE3 standard handle scales, the 3D scales, as well as TKC scales.
The X-MOD Sheath is available to order in either Vertical Carry, Scout Carry, or Both. When ordering Both, you will receive 1 sheath, with both carry components.
The Vertical Carry option comes with the Standard Belt Loop, but additional belt loop carry options are-
A Firesteel/Sharpener Loop can be added to the sheath as well. You can use either the Type A, or Type B, however each one will work better for each carry option. If you are intending on carrying the sheath in one configuration more often than the other(as in Vertical Carry more often than Scout), then it may be best to choose the type that is best suited to that carry. Type A is best for Vertical Carry, and Type B is best for Scout Carry. Again, each one will work on both, its just that each one mounts more simply than the other in each configuration.
Threadlocker is recommended for the hardware. You can purchase some here - Loctite 242 (Blue) Threadlocker
NOTICE: This Sheath will ONLY fit the ESEE3. Knife is NOT included. Firesteel, Sharpener, and/or mounting loop are sold separately.
