Friends:

Does anyone know some good places to find information on working with Kydex to make sheaths and holsters? Also, where material may be purchased? If anyone works with Kydex, how do you punch round edged slots in it? (like on sheaths) Any useful links are welcome.

Thanks in advance,

Migs

Look at Knifekits.com, Texas Knifemakers Supply and other knife supply houses.

I usually drill a hole at each end (knifekits sells special kydex bits) and connect with a saw, but there are specialty punches made for leather work that will work on Kydex.

HTH,

Larry
