    Tim, DPx Gear finally stocked left-hand folders of the HEST/F 2.0. Fabulous knife. Used a righty for nearly a year, loved it, before I got my hands on lefty. Check it out, link Link

    I just adjust...don't even buy lefty sheaths I just grab with knife reversed..I have thought about buying an ambi charging handle for my AR instead of clawing but as usual I just deal with it

    I'm a full true leftie and a sheathmaker. I did for me lefty leather sheaths but not all my own made sheaths are for lefties.

    I learnt use right hand when I found a piece of british shell 31 years ago and in the post recoveration of that wound.
    As I learnt,I forgot howto use when left hand whas 95% OK.
    I had to learn use leather craft right handed tools. No way. It is our kharma, be a small part of population.

    Here is one of my lefties sheaths

    There's another option, and one I'm rather surprised that sheath-makers haven't already glommed onto.

    It is easier - far easier - to make a sngle ambidexterous sheath design than to make two separate designs. Even in mass production the additional cost of a single ambi sheath is minimal; well within the 'let's just eat the difference' range.

    To our representatives of the sheath-making profession, am I right?

    FOLLOW-UP:

    Since not even one member of the well-represented "sheath-maker" representatives has responded, I can only assume that my post impacted a "tender spot" in their pricing/costing practices.

    Hey, I'm just a left-hander. But what say you, Sheath-Makers??? Will you allow my challenge to go unanswered?

    Okay, due to the thundering silence from our sheathmakers:

    I will make pics of one of my ambi sheaths so I can post them here. Its for a Mark II "Ka-Bar", although the knife that rode in it was a WWII Mark II Camillus.

    My leathersmith friend, the one who made this sheath for me, charged me not one cent more for it than he would have charged for a righty-only sheath. In fact, he let-slip the fact that it was a bit easier to make than a righty-only. I used it for a bit more than a decade, folks, and it definitely withstood the tests of time.

    As old Arnie the Governator would say:

    "I'LL BE BACK!!!"
