Has anyone fitted a combat sheath ex: Spec-ops to this knife?

The leather one is nice but impractical for extreme situations.

Thanks

I tend to disagree about the leather sheath provided with the knife. I have had the distinct pleasure of sending a fellow firefighter who is a reserve Combat MP over to Iraq with a Shadow IV in the leather sheath. He carried it everyday for 18 months into some pretty extreme situations and aside from some wear and tear from use (scuffs) it held up remarkably well. I gave it a new coat of dye and leather polish when he got back and it looks as good as new. I find that the aftermarket nylon sheaths do not compare to a solid well made leather sheath. If you really need something that will hold up to more extreme situations I would contact PiterM, a member of this forum, and get one of his Kydex sheaths..well made, solid, and sure to protect your knife from whatever you throw at it...or throw it against.

I guess I should have clarified. I mean WET situations. I'm sure the leather would work fine in the desert. Also, it would be nice to find something in the US. Does Pitter have a dealer here in the states?

No dealer in US, sorry. I make them for orders only. Recently about 6 weeks backlog anyway...
