    I've gotten several requests for standalone firesteel loops for factory and custom sheaths, so here's the info.

    Loops can be made for standard or odd sized steels. Holes can be set at .5 inch centers (.5, 1, 1.5, etc.) or left undrilled and you can put them where you like.

    If you have a large handle, let me know so I can space accordingly. I don't have a RAT fire kit on hand (yet), so if you need a loop for it, either send it in, or ask about placement options.

    Option 1: 1 piece .060 loop. These are the classic single piece of kydex sized for the steel. Firesteel is held in place by looping the cord over the end. Price is $5 each. $2 flat shipping (First Class) in the US for up to 5 loops. $5 shipping for any amount higher than 5 (Priority).

    Option 2: 2 piece .093 loop. These are two piece loops that taper towards the bottom and swell at the top. The pieces seperate at the bottom as the steel goes in creating holding tension even as the steel is wore down. Price is $7 each. $2 flat shipping (First Class) in the US for up to 5 loops. $5 shipping for any amount higher than 5 (Priority).

    Discounts available for large quanities.

    Posts and screws included.


    Any questions, just ask. PP addy is [email protected].

    All due orders will be going out Tuesday or Wednesday.

    I sent you an email, but I guess it didn't get through (freakin' phone). I can't find in your comms how you need the holes spaced, please let me know.

    Do you need a measurement?

    Yeah. It's for a RC-4 sheath, so I'm guessing 1.5" but just needed to verify.

    I don't have a real accurate way to measure, but it looks like 1.5" with a ruler.

    Kiah made one of these loops for my RC-4 sheath (with MOLLE back) a coupla months ago. Here's what I asked for:

    The piece fits my RC-4 sheath setup like a glove. As-is, it accommodates the LMF Army firesteel perfectly.

    So if Kiah followed those specs in making my loops, that's what you're looking for to fit a RAT RC-4 (or RC-3) Kydex/MOLLE rig.

    Would we need to send one in Kiah, or do you have a few models in-house?

    just an idea if you don't have one already- they can be had at a lot of local hardware stores for ~ $25, might be cheaper to buy one vs shipping both ways??????

    Also I'm pretty sure the 14" hatchet and the 8.8" hatchet share the same head so the cover could be used for either
