Simply Scroll Down to the Gallery if you feel you want to bypass all the Information which precedes it. Although, its good information that may help you in your decision. Our "Fast Track" program (designed for guys who cannot wait our normal build time) is explained in the description at the top of Gallery #2 page. Please, feel free to let Doug know if you are having any issues, or concerns.
This sheath system Photo Gallery #1 represents sheath design types, build techniques, colors and accessory options which are well tested, very popular, and that we build alot of for clients. It is recommended that you watch the Intro videos on the Home Page for kydex colors/patterns, utilitarian options, etc. Please read the description section of each photo for details, colors and or patterns used, accessories etc, of the particular sheath system u are viewing. You may need to know this info. Trust us. This is really pretty easy. Look through the photos. We built every one of these systems for specific clients. What you see is what we can do. For example: Sheath system #4 , the black sheath system with the hexcam green options is VERY popular. This happens to be my personal rig for my Quickhatch trapper. 5.75" blade. Blade length is important! Read the description. Yes, we include everything. It can be delivered to u just like u see it. See, very simple. The important thing is, you need to tell us in the text, what u want. Saying, " can you make me a sheath for such and such a knife", is not enough. We can build a sheath for almost any knife, but you will likely need to send it to us. That is the only way to assure perfect fit/retention. Keep in mind that we can build any one of these sheaths for your specific knife. IMPORTANT: Use your imagination and picture your blade in the sheath/s u like/see.
Please take notice of some of our "common" design features, found "standard" on many of our sheath systems. Ie. Our canted , solidly mounted "45 degree" cross draw tek lok belt clip. This is one of the most comfortable and ergonomic styles of carry. Our "canted" tek lok gets that handle up in the air a bit for an effortless, comfortable and safe deployment. This combats the fact that most knives are handle heavy. As well, even with our Tabby Dangler sheaths, you are able to keep a tek lok on the sheath system at all times, unlike most others sheath designs. Most of our sheaths with a tek lok will come to you configured this way, unless some other configuration is requested by you. Regardless, u will be able to confgure the tek lok in several other configurations as well. Point being, generally, we can give you many different styles of carry in one sheath system, without the need to re- arrange or remove anything. Including, a dangler, leg drop, and baldric carry ability, to name a few. Few other makers are able to give u as many carries in the same sheath. In either right or left handed sheaths. Please make sure to tell us whether u are right or left handed. This is critical. Now, it is also very important "where" on the sheath the tek lok is mounted. Alot of sheaths one the market have the tek lok mounted too far down the sheath, (and you will likely not even know it, until you start carrying it) in order to maintain a properly balanced carry. These are the critical details that are easy to overlook in photos. At YHCO, We make sure the tek lok is more appropriately balanced (which is dictated by several key factors), in order to assure u an evenly balanced, and comfortable carry, so that the knife can be quickly, easily, and safely deployed. Every knife is different, so the tek lok mounting should be different. Many companies mount the clip in the same place for nearly every sheath, regardless of the knife being sheathed. Its easier to do, but does not assure you , the user, the best possible carry/ balance. This is just one reason we do not make "cookie cutter" sheaths, which is a common method of the industry. Its much cheaper to make sheaths this way, however, all the sheaths look the same and generally lack utilitarian, user friendly, and even some tactical features. Every sheath system we build is 100% custom designed/built by hand, in the old school way. According to YOUR wants, desires, and needs. Period. This is why effective communication is KEY. Hence, the texting thing.
