my first kydex sheet (carbon fiber pattern) and eyelets just arrived days ago. yesterday, tools for my DIY kydex press arrived - child's padding mat, 6mm drill part and some metal files for scouring the kydex sides. So far, my first two tries in making sheath were a failure. first one, I used a towel to press the hot kydex onto the knife which caused some deformations on the kydex. second one was I overheated the kydex and it actually shrunk. third try was a perfect press. will proceed with drilling for the eyelets and then trimming the sides,which will be a new learning curve on m part.
