    Hi,

    Here a small review of the Esee Candiru and the Orange Taco style sheat made by Godspeedtactical.

    I ordered the sheath as sayd by Godspeedtactical, and it was made just how I thought it would be. PERFECT!
    Its a kydex sheath, so very light and it fits my pocket perfect. There are no sharp edges and the overall thickness is perfect.
    I specially wouldn't get a belt loop because it would be to thick to fit in my pockets or my daily backpack. I think this is the perfect way to EDC it.
    The normal sheath wich comes with the Candiru with velcro closing is ok, but I prefer it this way.
    The lockup in the Sheath is perfect, but was the first few days a bit though to get out.

    The Esee Candiru is now my favorite fixed blade. Its small, lightweight, sharp and looks not so aggressive with the Orange handles. It's just a nice combination!

    I ordered the knife itself from Jim Howe. (http://www.howesknifeshop.com/)

    Here are a few pictures of the knife and the sheath :D

    Thanks for the imfo and pics i really like that little Esse. My son is needing something like it for his backpacking trips.
    Those orange handles would be the way to go to along with the sheath.

    Does anyone of you wrapped the handle with paracord? I'm interested how it looks!

    The handle isn't too small or anything?

    That knife and the Laser strike are on my list of "gets" here soon. I really like that sheath. Im going to have to look into that when I get mine.

    Looks good. From the minute I first saw it I thought the Candiru looked like a winner for the minimalist. A good sheath IMO is a worthy investment and as much as it pains me to say it I've come to prefer Kydex over old school leather.

    I havent been sure of who to get a sheath from for my green candiru. I love this little knife. I am going to go ahead and order another knife just to have a spare and then try another co. For a sheath also. Reason being I have a larger knife I need a sheath for as well. Really liking the godspeed scout. Good review
