    This is a chance for everyone, including the makers to show off their unique custom kydex sheaths. I'll lead off with a couple of my favorites from my collection.

    For smaller blades use .06 and for big ones use .08, found this works for me. But .08 is a all around size for all.

    No kydex from me, just a simple sheath for a Santoku that I sharpened for a friend. Didn't want to wrap it in a newspaper, so I made a sheath from some spare material on job. I guess it's Polypropylene or -ethylene. Also the folding could be a bit better, but I'm satisfied for an unpaid half hour of work ;)

    Oh and I replaced that locking ball with a leather loop but forgot to take a shot.

    Give the .06 a try first. It is easier to get good definition with out over heating. Also I recommend 1/4" rivets. They are easier to work with and not split them. Best of luck to you! Make sure to post some pics up.

    RichinVA, I know this is a kydex sheath thread but I can't help but wonder about those wood bowls!:eek:Could you send me a conversation message about them so I do not derail the thread any further?

    I'm looking for someone to make a kydex sheath for a Rexford Rut, anyone have one that they can use to make a sheath for me so that I won't have to ship mine out. Should I ask in the BST? Mods please remove if I posted this in the wrong area and sorry.
