    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.

    Great looking knife and sheath. I really like the idea of having a sheath for the fire steel, but I'm not sure I'd want it on the actual knife sheath.

    Is that the blade Andy called mediocre:rolleyes:

    He is way too modest, that knife looks great, I love the blade shape and I bet it cuts like a lazer.

    Dylan that sheath looks great. I am one of those who like the firesteel loop on his sheaths. I love the idea that you can put it in different locations.

    Excellent job bro:thumbup:

    Thats cool Dylan! You do great kydex. We may need to see more Fiddlebacks in kydex of yours. (Guys, my wife won't let me put kydex in our oven.)

    I see you modded the handle. Neato. I think I'm going to add a bit more angle to the front of my handles. Per BTD's thread recently. Maybe about 45 degrees instead of 22. I think that particular chunky lesbian knife had no angle there, but I can't remember.

    That knife was the one before Tony's, which led to the Woodsman. I just never got it tweaked so I found it sexy the way I did Tony's. It has cankles, if you know what I mean. Maybe I'm the only guy around that checks a woman's ankles before I go much further, but thats how I do it, and that knife never turned me on.
