    I have a love hate relationship with kydex. I carry 24/7/365, but i keep cracking my holsters! I refuse to look at this critical piece of gear as a wear item! I gotta figure out something permanent. I carry appendix and find it absolutely ideal for my uses. Heres a tier 1 concealment axis...

    Anyone have tips for making a kydex knife sheath? I ordered a Morakniv 746 from Maverick Trading Post on Ebay - For some reason the 746 comes with a narrow belt loop that would not even fit my leather belt. So I need to make something that will fit...

    I have a Ka-Bar knife with the Kydex sheath, 7" blade. I picked up a Ka-Bar MOLLE adapter and tested it out over the weekend, wearing it on my USGI ALICE LBE while doing yard work. The adapter works as advertised, but the knife rides higher than I would like. In use, drawing it and placing it...

    At my work we are rebuilding a sterling prime mover (british version of ford). We have put in a new steer axle and assembly, swapped out the motor completely and rewired the dash. Unfortunately the dashboard cover is pretty beat up, and to buy a new one is very expensive. I suggested that we buy...

    Ok, so I own plenty of toys and most of my toys have moderately servicable sheaths, some far better than others. Now what ****es me off is a good knife with a terrible sheath, and many a knives are sold in such a fashion. So here I am, seriously wanting to do my own weapon skins. What I've...

    I just made a kydex sheath for a knife I have been working on. The knife is a cheap Chinese knife made of stainless that I refinished, polished up and added new micarta handles to. Just fooling around mostly, although I have really fallen in love with the shape of it. Here's my problem. The...

    Not sure where to put this, since I can't find a DIY board, so MODS move it as you see fit. Kydex, put simply, is a thermoplastic sheet which can be molded to form-fit nearly any shape. It comes in various colors, and is used to make custom holsters for firearms, knives, axes, and other tools...
