Kydex?

I would like to try my hand at working with Kydex. I am mainly interested in making small things like knife sheaths and mag holders. I have only found a few sources of Kydex sheets from knife making suppliers and I was wondering if anyone had any other sources?

TIA

Check out the big plastic warehouses...
The stuff is really cheap by the full sheet.
Local library, Thomas Register, plastics; for supplier near you.

Kydex is one of the more expensive plastics in sheet form.

Try contacting the manufacturer, Kleerdex, for a list of distributors.

Last I bought, bout 4 years ago, was under $20 for 4' X 8' sheets. 0.080" thick. Black. Available in many thickness and colors.

Distributor in Phoenix from whence it came burned down last year, and don't have alternate source. Haven't looked....have nuff to last me.
