I am looking at this custom sheath for an Ontario RAT-7

http://www.chestnutridgeknifeshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=55&products_id=715&osCsid=d5c896a9f8ee44f9f970fd726e3c070f

And I would want to use the method of simply weaving Paracord through the rivets and through the Molle. But, being there are only rivets on the one side, would this not be possible? I just don't see a good way of securing the opposite side.

Any Suggestions?

Taco style sheaths are particularly challenging to carry since they only offer the one option for mounting as they come.

You can wrap webbing and glue it to the sheath, but that's not going to make you confident of the mount.

You can secure the spine side by creating & wrapping a band of kydex around the sheath to give mounting positions on both sides of the sheath.

I don't know if this is worthwhile $$-wise. I think duct tape, or just using Tek-Loks would work for most applications.

I think what I may do is contact Red Hill Sheaths (Not the maker of this sheath) and have them make me one and specify that I need rivets on both sides. I have heard good things about them also.

Just tell them you need a MOLLE attachment instead of a regular one - they have those and I used to get them on some sheaths.

Just don't put this on body armor.

May work great as a camp knife on a pack, but don't think you'll carry it into combat.
