    Just in case any of you were thinking about this sheath, I figured I’d share my experience.

    I recently purchased their short sheath for my BK2.

    Here are all of the pieces after I pulled out the kydex insert:

    Fyi, the kydex insert has a Velcro piece on the back for retaining it in the sheath. It was a little difficult getting it out.

    Before...

    After the heat gun...

    After I heated it, I pressed it between two thick towels. I was very careful with how I pressed it, I wanted it to pinch the spine and not rub the blade. It took a few attempts.

    Here's the sheath reassembled:

    I like it! The blade is held tightly. It’s a quality sheath and it’s made in America. I finally feel like I’m ready to carry my BK2.

    Most importantly, if I could do this, so can you! :D

    Could that be done to the factory Becker sheath?

    Nice job by the way!

    Thanks, fellas!

    Shaping it with a heat gun? Maybe, I suppose.

    Yeah, taking the rattle out and having a little retention if it’s not buttoned would be nice

    Piggy back on this thread. RSK Bk12 Sheath with a AZWelke kydex insert. Excellent retention for my mountain climbs.
