This review is from: Cold Steel Two Handed Katana Machete Sheath SC97THK (Sports)
If you want to fabricate your own sheath, go to a fabric and materials store. If you just want a sheath for transport, this is the one stop shop. Otherwise the strap clamp for adjusting strap length is a bit tricky to figure out if it hasn't been properly setup. I needed to push the excess line out of the slot below then clamp and pull it back up towards the strap hanger. I used a strip of duct tape to keep the excess strap from flying everywhere. Knowing this I would have fabricated my own sheath, but instead I just added a cutout piece of flat poly-carbonate to the inside of the sheath and mounted it via glue. If you want to draw from this sheath while it's on your back, you need that solidifying plate to keep the sheath from being cloth-like and folding on the blade while it's drawn. I find if I want to draw the blade it's much quicker to dismount the sheath from my back. Also the button on clamp holding the sheath to the handle was a bit short and I found I had to stretch it out a bit. I gave this a 3/5 because it did not meet my expectations as a sheath as much as it did an easy way to just carry around the sword.
