    Hey guys so i am not great with sheaths yet i have made a bunch of knives but only a couple kydex sheaths and 2 leather sheaths (but idk if the qualify as a sheath more like a "knife wrap" out of very thin leather)....i am at the point where i have enough confidence in my knives to start selling them but i need to figure out sheaths a lil better...i guess kydex i am ok at the sheath part but its the attachment i struggle with i have a couple people waiting for me to make them a blade but i know some will not want some will not want something like a tec lock my neighbor actually said he wants a plain belt clip like this one http://usaknifemaker.com/accessorie...related/1238-00-clip-small-belt-and-boot.html i decided to try it on one of my knives it was a big fail i could not figure out how to attach a clip like that without affecting how the knife "locks" in the sheath or just looking bad or probbilly scratching the hell out of the blade with more than a couple pulls.....anyone out there have a method of attaching a clip like this that works??? that is my main question right now but any advice in any type of sheath making i have a bunch of kydex and just got some leather i figure if i am going to sell a knife it needs a home and i am sure some customers like kydex some like leather so i do need to start getting better at this.....thanks guys
