Well , been having a play with kydex and have to say so far not disappointed !
I wanted to have a go so I thought start of simple and move on up is the idea .
Decided to try a knife sheath first (I bought a SOG seal pup last wk in a 1 day half price sale on heinnies , it came with a fairly large cordura sheath so a light waight one was needed) simple to work it just warm the kydex with a heat gun stick the knife in it place the whole lot in a press I made and leave to cool , I still need to fix it (dazmondo is kindly lending me a pop riveter) and trim to shape but it's prity much a done deal so once these tasks are complete it'll be a case of  Roberts your fathers brother ! cheers
So watch this space to see what's next ! Wink

Ha ha ! No I've got a cheap ass heat gun for the job !
Find it works best if I fit the duck bill attachment to it , the heat seams a lot more controllable with it on the heat gun , only takes 20 seconds or so at 200 degrees to get the kydex nice and maliable.
