    I have wanted a pr4 for quite a while,and frankly almost bought one several times, but my hands are so big I don’t want thin handle scales., and if I put buy the TKC scales I have read it won’t fit in the stock leather sheath.If TKC brings pr4 out in the knife builder section where I can get scales, and then a sheath to fit I will own one.

    The TKC scales will not fit a stock leather sheath due to the thickness.
    2 good option IMO are
    #1 TKC sells a Kydex sheath designed for the PR4 with TKC scales and they sell a Leather sheath that will fit with the added scales.

    #2 You can almost fit the the PR4 with TKC scales in the stock sheath. What I did before I bought the kydex was to carefully unstich a few inches of the sheath from the top down to the blade curve. I then placed a small about 1/4 inch wide strip of additional leather to make the handle part a little wider. Carefully stitch back up and your good to go. Look at the leather working thread below if my pictures don’t work. 12 January 2019 a post by me for pictures

    https://eseeknives.com/forums/index.php?threads/leather-working-thread.195/page-14

    You can see the additional leather I had to add.

    You can see the partial stitching and the Chicago screw I added for durability.

    Couldn't you saturate the leather in water first? Then allow the wet leather to stretch over the scales, and just leave it in until it dries?

    @IW17
    I honestly don’t know.. I have never had much luck with wet-forming sheaths. I won’t say it won’t work but I seem to remember a year + ago when I got the scales that there was some reason you couldn’t.
