    Nice job on the kydex! Looks neat:D

    Be wary of that fake SAK though, I once had one and it didn't last very long

    Second sheath I made. Think I found another hobby.

    Looks good. I've thought about playing with kydex but I already have too many hobbies.

    I was referring to that small silver SAK with the holes in the scales.

    Aren't swisstools unbreakable?;)

    Ah, that thing. It's in a drawer somewhere now.

    Friend of mine did brake his swisstool.

    A happy new year to anyone who is slightly interested in my thread.
    I wish you all a year full of EDC gear that you don't really need but must have for no apparent reason and all the the joy and health you could possibly handle.

    And a happy new year mate!

    Happy new year de Vries!

    Love the looks of your tin and the new knife! I'll have to do some research on that one in a minute.

    Great jobs on those sheaths too! Are you taking orders yet? :D

    Great job on the kydex. Reminds me of the kydex i ordered a long time ago but never did anything with it. :unsure:

    How do you press the kydex?

    Thanks, you also a happy new year. We will meet at DKE. ;)

    Sheer brute force. Made me think twice of borrowing him my LM. :cold:

    The tin came with the knife. I wouldn't consider buying one of those tins to be honest. And no, I don't take orders. :p




    Likewise!

    I've got heat resistant foam, I'll take some pictures of my set up tomorrow as I plan to make another sheath then.

    Gives me the chills. Especially considering that they're pretty sturdy tools.

    Do you do kydex requests then?

    Not that I need anything, but still!

    Nope, have one to make as a favour for a friend but I need to practise some more on my own stuff before I find my work good enough for others.

    That's fair.

    But there's potential then. So after the DKE you'll be drowning in orders as all the Dutchies will be wanting that sweet sweet kydex after seeing your work!

    Hey de Vries, hope you had great holidays and want to wish the two of you a very good 2016. Looking forward to having an overnighter in the woods again this year! Miss the open fire, the food, drink and talk! ;)

    All the best for you both also.
    It's getting colder so we'll have to wait a bit till we go out again.

    Or we could go for a day.

    Great, looking forward to see your setup! You really got me motivated to finally use that kydex that is rotting in some box somewhere... :D
