This is a new idea I had for the firesteel loop. I personally don't care for firesteel loops permanently attached to sheaths. I asked Andy the other night what he thought of the whole firesteel loop popularity. He said that he likes them. Most people I ask do. What I came up with is a firesteel loop that can be easily attached in several different places around the sheath, worn on a neck lanyard, or whatever you want to do with it. The spacing on the firesteel loop eyelets matches the spacing of the eyelets all the way around the sheath except for the two at the tip, so you can attach it in a few different places to either side. I thinks it's a pretty cool idea. I also found that I prefer the eyelets and paracord to lash it to you or your pack however you want. I got used to this with the RAT sheaths and have adopted it to mine. Plus that way, you don't have to worry about belt loops being too big, too small, etc. Anyways, here ya go. Enjoy.
