    Finished a sheath for my latest purchase, a DPX Gear HEFT 4, yesterday.

    It's set up for a right-handed crossdraw from the left hip. I wish I had angled the belt loop more, but other than that and some minor cosmetic details I'm pretty pleased. Any advice for getting that forward rake correct would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you. Stamping is fun, and I think a bit of a border adds something to a sheath.

    Try bringing the welt end of the blet loop more towards the tip. That will angle the throat of the sheath up more. What you can do is use a ruler when getting ready to put the belt loop on the sheath. The ruler becomes your belt. Angle your belt loop and sheath in relationship to the ruler as you would like it, mark and sew down the top of your belt loop. Then construct your sheath sewing the bottom of the belt loop into your marks that you made earlier. Nice work btw.

    Thank you, sir. I eagerly read through your post on pancake sheaths. You do wonderful work and are an excellent teacher as well.

    Thank you. My BK-17 fits this pattern sheath as well, so I'll make another soon and get that rake angled correctly.
