The sheath needs redesigned. The retention strap should pass over the guard and be attached to the body of the sheath not the loop. It should also have options for horizontal and other carry options. I did a review of the knife on my Youtube channel. https://youtu.be/uuKv00Fx0U8
Good day, Raymond. I'm sorry the sheath did not appeal to you. Our main focus is on our Forseti Steel knives. If you don't like the sheath, we may look at other knives' sheaths to see if there are others that you prefer. Please send an email to email@example.com so that we can assist you.
Very well made knife fits my hand perfect will be ordering more this is my second knife
This is the second Sub hilt knife in my collection. Love the craftmanship of the blade and the slight bend.
This is my second Hector subhilt. After gifting the first one to a family member, I quickly realized that I really wanted one for myself.....so I gifted myself! The Hector has a great feel when held and is perfectly balanced!
As per the blade itself, everything is on point. Fit & finish, grind lines, for the most part, fair out of box edge, (but they almost always need touching up, don't they.)
My grief is with the provided sheath. It failed within the first week, and I knew it would, immediately upon unboxing. I studied this knife for months, prior to my eventual purchase. A part of my decision to take the plunge, was based upon the descriptive, stock photos of the items, that were provided. I gave in to my want of this blade, partially because of the image of the sheath, with it's black leather, and heavy white stitching, as I do leather work, as a hobby. The photo resembled my hand stitch work.
I will just have to press my own Kydex sheath for this formidable blade, whis resists rust pretty well for Damascus. That will help keep it out of the moisture, anyway. I definitely recommend this blade, but just know that they might try to sneak a trashy sheath in on you, like you're a fool.
Attached are some photos of what I actually received, after one week of EDC.
Again, I emphasize that the knife itself was phenomenal, for the price point, but the sheath was bait-and-switch GARBAGE.
