Best sheath ?

Just got a big survival knife with a 8 inch blade. I want a kydex sheath,(I think), as it seems the most secure. My question is what style or configuration of sheath is the best to carry a big knife such as this one?
Do I want a sheath that straps to your thigh?
One which attaches to your belt around mid-sheath? Do I want a forward cant so the knife handle does not hit my ribs? Strong hand or cross draw?
Lots of choices for such a simple question.....
Normark, aka Eric Noeldechen is the man to see. I am getting ready to order my fourth sheath from him. I am extremely pleased with his work. Eric's website address is www.mnsi.net/~nbtnoel/

UPS just left me a very well made carbon fiber pattern Concealex sheath from Mike Sastre of River City Sheaths. I've used one of his sheaths with a whitewater rescue knife for about 3-4 years with no problems or complaints. You can give him a shout at VideoSAS@aol.com
Normark will do you right, very easy to work with and does exceptional work, can't go wrong there!

If you're not quite certain that you indeed want kydex, and wonder about leather, Mr. Graley is your man for that. I think as much clarity as possible as to what your primary use of the knife will be can assist you in making the proper decision as to material.
