RVW: On/Scene Tactical Concealex Sheath

Feb 19, 1999
Last week I sent my Bob Dozier Arkansas toothpick to Eric Noeldechen of On/Scene Tactical in Ontario, Canada for a custom Concealex sheath. I thought I'd do a quick review.

Firstly, Eric was a pleasure to deal with from the get go. I had plenty of contact with him throughout through telephone, e-mail and ICQ. He answered all of my questions, and asked plenty of me to make sure I got exactly what I wanted. This was one smooooth business transaction! On to the sheath.

Actually, I should have said sheaths. When it became apparent that all the carry options I wanted weren't going to fit in one sheath, he made me two (at no extra cost)!

The first sheath is black concealex, set up for right-hand IWB carry. The sheath is very well constructed, with a removable j-hook belt clip attached with chicago screws. The knife shows no sign of rattle. Retention is tight, but not so tight that it is difficult to draw the knife. The sheath also has a drain hole.

The second sheath is also black concealex, and of the same impeccable quality as the first. This one has a removable belt loop that accomodates standard belt carry at a variety of angles (horizontal, vertical, tilted). It also has holes drilled for neck carry.

Any knives I have that need sheathing in the future will be going straight to Eric at OS/T. His sheaths are extremely high quality and an excellent value. See them at www.mnsi.net/~nbtnoel


Let me first thank you for the excellent review, it is Appreciated!

Secondly let me say that it was a privilege working with such a high calibre blade. I can see why you purchased it!

I would also like to Thank You for putting your trust in me with your gear. I know how hard it is to put something like that in the hands of someone you don't know.

I'm very happy that you are enjoying your new sheath, and wish you many happy years together..

At any point that you are unhappy with it,, or have a problem, please Do Not hesitate to contact me...

Also if whenever you want those different screws we talked about,, drop me a note,, I'll send them right out...

Thank you so much again...

I am preparing to ship off to MCRD San Diego. My folks and fiancee have decided to give me a Randall Made SP#1 Special Fighter for a carry blade while I am with the Corps. I plan to take the Recon Indoc. and try to make Recon Bt. (With a lot of hard work and Prayer!) and would need a "all purpose" tool to use. I love Randall knives but I hate the sheath (too pretty and LEATHER!!!) so I decided to contact Eric about a concealex/kydex rig for my blade. I have yet to receive the blade and already Eric and I have designed a carry option for it that will work as a "jump qualified" kydex all purpose combat sheath. It will look a lot like the ATAK combat sheath and Sog SEAL 2K sheath, but better because it will be for my Randall and hand made by Eric. I can't wait. Thanks Eric for all of the help and I can't wait to send you the knife so you can make it a new "home." I look forward to more buisness in the future with you.

Hi Horse...

It's been great watching the sheath evolve through the process...
I believe you'll be happy with the outcome..

You've picked a heck of a tough blade for a heck of a tough job! Do us proud!
Good Luck, and

Semper Fi My friend..
