Secure-Ex replacement - with work
Recently purchased the Cold Steel Chaos (Much Love) and the Secure-ex sheath that came with it - rubs the edges and dulls them like a bastard...which sux cause I love the idea of the secure-ex, and how I don't have to un-sheath a weapon to ram it into someone's gut. Let's face it...a dull blade sucks! I bought this sheath because the SP series ran from 6-8 inches long, and all had a near 2" blade width. Took the button-clasp off my Chaos sheath and added it to this sheath. Removed the button-clasp from this sheath and re-positioned it. Stuffed the sheath with glue and cardboard - wrapped with cord all the way through with a slight lanyard. The plastic insert is very cheap, recommend a thin piece of metal slid down the back. Sure - it's cheap, but for the price - 5 stars, and you can get your Cold Steel out of those sheaths. Does not fit the Shanghai Shadow. Maximum recommended blade width 1 and 10/16". The 80NTP Chaos blade length is - 1 and 3/8" wide and 7.25" long. Doesn't fit perfect out of the box - but with my dual clasp system - Boo-yah!! Hey if it doesn't work for you...at least it's only $7! Does not come with extra clasps - skeletonized the Chaos Secure-ex sheath!!
