    There is now an opportunity to buy a Kydex sheath for the HM model knives. But an explanation about the circumstances first. When we first made HM knives we weren't extremely picky about the milling of the handle material to get it identical on every knife. There was no point since these were designed for a leather pouch style sheath. But when we decided to make a Kydex sheath model we had to be very precise on handles so they would lock up properly in the Kydex sheath which is not nearly as forgiving as the leather. SO here comes the problem.
    If you buy a Kydex sheath to replace an existing Kydex sheath you are fine. No worries.
    But if you buy a Kydex sheath to replace an older version leather sheath there is a risk you knife may be either too tight or too lose in the Kydex sheath. Or the handle may fit just fine. We have no way to know. If it is to tight obviously you could file the handle a bit to get the proper fit. Too loose and there is no remedy. (The handle is the problem here. The blades will all fit fine.) So it would be a risk on your part to purchase the Kydex sheath to replace the leather unless you want to risk it. We really don't want to get into a situation of selling /mailing a sheath only to have it returned because the fit isn't correct . So you buy it -then it is yours. Sorry but that is the way it has to be.
    We strongly recommend the best remedy to get a Kydex sheath to replace a leather sheath is to have one of the custom Kydex makers here on the forum make you one that you know will fit. That is the far better option here for the Kydex for an older HM knife with a leather sheath.
    If you wish to order one go directly to Pay Pal and pay the required amount to info@eseeknives.com and note on the order what it is for. Then the office will mail the sheath to you.
    Now you know what we know and can decide what you wish to do.)

    Any shot that we get a deal on some fresh scales that are more precise when we order a sheath? Not looking for free. Maybe a partial trade in or something?

    Are they just the stock kydex sheath? No color options or anything.
