The Architect Sheath is an extremely durable kydex sheath custom made to fit the Bradford Guardian3 fixed blade. It comes standard with a soft nylon loop that includes a mil-spec Pull-the-Dot snap. The Architect is a fully ambidextrous sheath so it can be worn on either side of the body and drawn from any direction. This Architect model comes in a flat black color.

  • Fold-over sheath design offers far superior strength and retention than two-piece pancake style sheaths.
  • Retention is set on each individual Architect sheath to snap firmly in place and never shake loose.
  • Built in thumb ramp with a recessed finger index allows for fast and smooth deployment despite the firm blade retention.
  • Compatible with Tek Lok, Mini Tek Lok, MALICE clips, and IWB Over-hooks.

All-around Perfection
Nick V.
TL DR: Amazing sheath, super comfortable with great retention and purchase on the blade. Buy one!

Total length with blade in the sheath is 7 7/16" it's very slim

When you grab the knife you are already in the optimal grip. This was the main reason for my purchase, I wanted to draw the knife without having to readjust my grip on the handle. I carry this appendix carry on my belt with the provided loop and It's very slim and doesn't print much. It's also very comfortable. The top of the sheath is smooth and there are no hotspots when moving around day-to-day or sitting down (even leaning forward) it doesn't get in the way when lifting or carrying, it really disappears on my belt.

Retention is perfect. The thumb ramp gives the perfect spot to put some opposite pressure to draw the blade without tugging on what it's attached to.

The pull the dot loop is perfect for me and I love the small American flag imprint on the tab. I tried the IWB clip, but it wasn't for me.

The Armatus logo is a high quality vinyl sticker so you can remove it carefully with no chemicals or anything to make the sheath solid black, in my opinion it looks really good de-branded, sorry Armatus!

If you are looking for an alternative to the leather sheath that comes with the Bradford G3, look no further. I think this is very well designed and I highly recommend!
