Custom kydex sheaths for knives by 362 Custom Kydex

Beautiful leather textured kydex sheaths custom made by 362 Custom Kydex

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.

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.
