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.
If you are into knives and guns, you would know what a good kydex sheath is. Kydex is a thermo moulding plastic that when heated and pressed, will take on the shape of an object. It is a durable plastic which was used initially for aircraft interiors. A kydex sheath for a knife or a gun means a more secure keeping, more durable and ‘silent’ way of keeping your piece. Something that many collectors, preppers and tactical enthusiasts would appreciate. I have had my hand on kydex sheath making with little success. Someone recently pointed me to a guy in Subang Jaya that has taken up the art of knife kydex sheath making. I had to pay the guy a visit.
