Seperti yang ditulis si Mystrm sebelum ini, Fursan Blades adalah seorang pandai besi (tukang pisau) kelahiran ibu kota Kuala Lumpur yang kini menjadi ikutan ramai peminat pisau di Malaysia. Sejak pertemuan pertama beliau dengan Mystrm hampir 6 bulan yang lalu, Fursan Blades kini telah menganjak kemahiran beliau ke tahap yang lebih tinggi. Berikut pemerhatian Wak semasa bertemu beliau minggu lepas.
Baru-baru ini, Wak sempat melawat workshop sarung pisau kydex yang dikedalikan oleh 362 Custom Kydex. Bagi Wak, Peter dari 362 Custom Kydex adalah antara tukang kydex terulung di Malaysia. Ketekunan serta komitmen beliau menghasilkan produk berasaskan kydex (sarung pistol, dompet kad, sarung pisau dll) membuatkan beliau terserlah berbanding pembuat lain. Disini, Wak kongsikan pengalaman Wak melihat Peter bekerja di workshop beliau.
I was really intrigued with the EDC kydex wallet by 362 Custom Kydex after seeing pictures as posted by Wak. I placed an order for a unit a few weeks ago when I was overseas. Upon my return, a Poslaju package was already waiting on my desk. Here are some pictures of my new EDC wallet in kydex made by 362 Custom Kydex.
Sudah lama Wak mencari kedai membaiki backpack Camelbak Hawg yang ada sedikit rosak. Memanglah banyak kedai yang boleh repair bag tapi Garrison Packs (GP) yang disyorkan si Mystrm memang arif dalam kerja membaiki, modifikasi serta kerja-kerja tempah khas bag, terutamanya untuk activity lasak dan juga kegunaan ketenteraan.
Fadzrill Omar’s District U5 EDC Gear offering of knife and titanium anodizing services has certainly stepped up the ante in the Malaysian knife and EDC gear gadget scene. Fadz’s workshop is located in Shah Alam, Selangor and shares the same roof with knife maker Fursan Blades. I recently visited their bungalow workshop for a quick tour.
Making kydex sheaths for knives is really an art on its own. A well made kydex sheath keeps the blade safe for use and is almost maintenance free (as oppose to leather or wood sheaths). I have personally tried to make kydex sheaths for my own knives and Malaysian made parangs but soon to realize some things are best left to the experts. Peter of 362 Custom Kydex is one of the very few people I know in Malaysia that actually makes excellent kydex molded products. Here are some pictures I took of his latest custom made kydex sheaths.
My friend shared with me pictures of his custom made bike panniers for his Kawasaki KLX250. This is the sort of product and services that I think is severely lacking in Malaysia. To have someone who can custom make goods that meets a user’s needs and expectations. Just like custom made knives, Garrison Packs specializes in nylon based products.
Baru-baru ni Wak berkenan sungguh dengan dompet Kydex hasil kerja 362 Custom Kydex. Tengah duk imbas muka-buku, Wak memang kagum dengan kreativiti dan hasil tangan saudara Peter dari 362 Custom Kydex. Dompet Kydex ini nampak memang simple tapi aplikasinya sungguh praktikal. Mari kita lihat.
A friend of a friend who is with a Malaysian law enforcement agency recently asked me where he can get a Glock 17 holster (kydex) made. Well, if anyone in Malaysia that owns and carries a firearm legally wants a custom made holster, I would simply recommend them to Peter of 362 Custom Kydex. I called Peter a few days ago and he agreed to show me the works of a Glock 17 IWB holster he is making for a customer.
If you ever need to do outdoor gear repair in New Zealand, you can do so by contacting the folks at TwinNeedle . A buckle on my Kifaru Marauder broke after I accidentally stepped on it. The only place to get some quality buckles to replace it would have to be TwinNeedle. A few weeks ago, I dropped by at their store on Tuam street and was pleasantly surprised by the many updates Matt and Chris has put on their store.
