    I bought a new knife (Jääkäripuukko 110 from Varusteleka) and decided to try and make a sheat for it. As material I used old Swiss army leather gaiter piece that I had left over from when I made couple of axe sheats. Its not beautiful but it does the job. Because I don't have means to sew through thick leather, so I riveted it together. Copied style from Varusteleka Jääkäripuukko sheat. So it has a retention snap to hold it in place.[​IMG]

    An easy to sew through thick leather is to use a drill, dremel, or drill press to drill the holes, then use needles and thread to sew/lace it together. Glue the leather and clamp it to dry (binder clips work well) before drilling so it stays together.

    Made a prototype/test version for a kydex card wallet, still some things needs to be adjusted bit. It will be good when I get some new versions done with the adjustments. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Yesterday I made a quick version of Adam Savages Leatherman holder out of kydex. This was my prototype and proof of concept. Ugly as hell but it works. [​IMG]

    Ugly as hell but it works. [​IMG][/QUOTE] Ugly as Hell?? :confused: That is freakin awesome! How is the holder attached to the clip? And it looks like it rotates.

    There is two holes in the back of the holster. And tek-lok is attached with two chicago screws. Does not rotate. I've been dabbling with the idea of Nite Ize clip that rotates.

    I've gotta say--I usually think of Kydex as soulless by comparison to nice leather, but this is very cool.

    @Peeveli, great stuff-all of it...full disclosure, though---I think from an aesthetic point I prefer your leather creations. Kydex has a lot of appealing properties, but looks are not one of them, for me. I'm not sure whether I'm in the majority or minority on that....just my particular point of view.

    @Tesla I've done couple from leather but with me working in my kitchen or living room it just so much faster to make from kydex.

    Yes, I think that's one of Kydex's strong points. I'm just a hidebound traditionalist about most things...but pretty unapologetic about it....;)
