Thumbs up Course #3 : Kydex sheath making

This course teaches the basics of making a kydex sheath for your knife, or a holster for a handgun.

We'll teach you how to cut out and heat form a sheath or holster to custom fit your knife or gun.

Materials required are a sheet of Kydex and Kydex rivets.

The minimum equipments and tools required are:

1. A hand drill, appropriate sizes of twist drills for the rivets, a coping saw or jeweler's saw, a file, sandpaper, rivet setting tools, an electric heat gun or hair dryer, and a pair of cotton gloves.

2. Suggested additional equipment:

Drill press, thick, dense foam rubber, a belt sander, a band saw, and for really professional looking sheaths, a Kydex press.

You will be able to make a very good sheath using the basic minimum tools and will also learn how to make the same sheath using a Kydex press.

Duration: 2 weeks

Cost: $29.95

I'm going to post a few photos of Kydex sheaths I've made by hand using the fold over hand method, and some that were made using a Kydex press obtained from Knifekits.com.

If you would like to learn how to make these sheaths and holsters please sign up for the course.
