The trouble you seemed to be having, was that the maker of your sheath has installed two straps, meaning that you have to rip two velcro tabs in
order to remove the knife from its sheath, which is tricky if you are trying to get something done in a jiffy (I am not going to ask, mostly because I
know what a damned knife is for
What you need, is for something to bridge the gap between the two straps, so that you only have to pull once, to open both loops enough that you can
draw your blade unhindered.
You could do that by opening the stitching at the ends of your velcro straps to create small loops, through which you could place a bolt or wooden
dowel, and then stitch them back into place around it.
This is what you have now right (forgive the upside down images... bloody iPad, go figure)?
Two straps, on which I have marked out the end bits of the straps with dotted lines. So you could add a solid bolt, dowel, or cylinder of plastic
through those strap ends (which you have opened out, probably with a scalpel, and then sewn back around the after market part).
Now you could pull that bolt, and both straps would open up. You could also decide to add an entire new sewn on panel, over the two straps, to make
them into one, bound together piece, so that no matter what, you pull one strap, and the whole thing comes undone...
There are several ways you could make your sheath do what you want it to from what I can see. I only hope that my crappy drawings helped explain what
I was on about, and that it is useful to you.
