    Careful how you use wording, remember where you are" This is thunderdome and will take the first man who screams" I meant to say this is the ESEE forum and will take the first sheep that bays:eek:

    I had the same concern when I ordered mine. It just looks like that area would be uncomfortable.

    In reality it just hasn't been a problem and is a great feeling knife.

    Although I carry an Izula more the JG3 is probably my favorite knife.

    Just picked up one of these secondhand. Only thing I don’t like so far is the sheath bends when I go to unsheath the knife. Does anyone have any aftermarket sheaths for the JG3? Kydex or leather. What are you thoughts about them?

    I have an Azwelke sheath on order. I’m sure it will just like the rest of his work.

    Cord wrapped the stock sheath last night to try and tighten the belt loop. Not sure it’ll accomplish what I want, but it’s worth a shot.

    @Delkancott if you wet the belt loop and clamp it closed it will tighten. You can also pop the stitches on the side and stitch the loop higher.

    I would be glad to help if you would like

    Thanks @mtngoat i may take you up on the offer if this doesn’t help. As it stands the sheath is not very functional for me.

    I took my RB3 sheath apart and restitched it, then I wet formed it and waxed it, it snapped like kydex, did the same with my PR4

    I would post the RB3 but it is in the possession of @Strigidae

    Any tips for wet forming? Why restitch? To tighten?

    For wet forming do not use hot water!!!!!! It will make the sheath brittle(learned the hard way). Just get the sheath wet (not dripping) wrap the knife in plastic wrap put it in the sheath and start pressing around the knifes sit dries keep pressing. I restitched it mainly to add a ferro rod loop and to use brown thread.

    WOuld you clamp the loop while the knife is in the wet sheath drying or do it separately?

    You can do it at the same time, just use on of the black office clip things. Put some scrap leather on the jaws so it doesn’t mark the leather.
