I am pondering what sheath to get for a Evo Extreme I have not long bought...I was looking at the Quest, but I am leaning towards something DIY, based around a liner formed from plastic pipe...The 2"/50mm plastic pipe used for underground ducting would be ideal if I can get a suitably offcut...

Moved the quest Velcro over to the ML sheath and ct1 adhesived and stapled it to it ...so far so good... I'll only use it on meadow so maybe a while before it's next outing .... plastic pipe a good idea if you'r a bit handy with the saw and say a multi tool or similar
would prob b more durable than my offering , I used to have the ML sheath for the knife on my finds pouch belt and it kept slìping around the back of me, which is a pain ,As I normally wear light weight leggings and top and would be a pain on the trousers belt and would be partly covered by the packamac type top .... I woz going to slow it up and hopefully hold it in place with tieraps but I don't like it on the finds belt if I'm not using it.....I tend not to use it on stubble and only take it out on grass cheers ::g
