    My first kydex sheath and a very crude kydex press. Be gentle lol. I know the holes are misaligned, the drill got away from me on that one. 20220518_175434.jpg 20220518_175448.jpg 20220518_204451.jpg 20220518_204455.jpg 20220518_204505.jpg 20220518_204516.jpg

    Second sheath, and while the holes line up I heated it up a little too long. But it still formed good. 20220521_202224.jpg 20220521_202331.jpg

    Another happy customer. He wanted a 3 for hunting and bone collector theme. I would've gotten the bone collector kydex but it's twice the price. Antler bead as well and reflective paracord. 20220622_133744.jpg 20220622_133836.jpg

    you do excellent work. I’ve made a few functional (and that’s about all I can say about them) sheaths. Taco style is a PITA for me too.
