    Nice, looks like you like rivets...because you use a lot of them, but that is a good thing so that there are more attaching points.

    I've only bought from Al and Godspeed in my pathetic knife life and honestly I couldn't be happier with them. That being said there's always room for more kydex benders out there and your prices are pretty good. Kind of thinking of a taco BK2...

    Abrasion, let me know or order thru my site. I use eyelits not rivets but ya I do use alot, spaced out 3/4 inches apart. I figured you can set up any type of attachments. I make some leather straps with a leather belt loop instead of kydex molded attachments, don't know if you have a Facebook account. I have some pictures of my stuff on there.

    I checked out your sight earlier liked what I saw. I like the idea of a leather belt loop instead of kydex. Is it possible to put one on a taco style?

    Check it out the belt loop is removable and you can switch it up to a horizontal carry, with this strap and loop system it is very versatile. Shown here is a Bk 7 kydex sheath with leather attachments. Would be the same for a Bk2 or any taco style, a little different for a pancake style. strap 1.jpg strap 2.jpg strap 3.jpg

    Seems like I've seen that somewhere before..... Mini_Wink_by_Momma__G.gif

    That one's mine y'all. I'll be doing a review of it in the Becker Forum after it gets here this coming week. Will probably be a week or so later because I'm taking it on a camping trip next week.

    Can't speak to the sheath itself yet, but The_710 has been great doing business with. Real quick in replying to questions and I had shipping info very shortly after sending PayPal.

    Good luck The_710, hope this works out well for you.

    cool thanks for posting, I am very happy you liked it! since it was my first review "even if it was just a first impressions video", my wife, kids"kids were so excited" and I all watched it at the same time. fyi if it's hard to unscrew everything, I used blue lock tight on the chicago screws, was made as a none removable leather system attachment but its yours now so you will be able to modify to your own liking. looking forward to your video review. I had to make the sheath with a little room because the way the blade is shaped, I had it tight but it was tough to get out. So I opened it up a bit. The paracord is 10 feet long 550 type III ungutted and the knife lanyard is gutted just for looks. Thank you.
