Yep! Kydex is very easy to work with, and forgiving. If you mess up just heat it up again and start over.


BTW that drop point goblin that Peter is making the sheath for is a great knife. A shame he isn't making blades anymore.

Oh yeah, fun with kydex.

I've made lots of kydex sheaths.  Here are a couple I made for my neck knives.

A crossdraw sheath I made for the large knife on the left, sorry it's a small picture.

I buy mine in 4'X4' sheets from a guy off e-bay.  I like to use heavier stock than what's normally available commercially.

I've ordered supplies from knife kits as well.  They're a reliable company to deal with.
