This course will show you how to use Kydex to make two basic styles of sheath and makes an excellent add-on for our one or two day knife courses. Kydex is an easy-to-form thermoplastic that molds tightly using minimal equipment and provides excellent protection and retention. Bring two of your favorite knives and walk away with two sheaths and the knowledge of how to make more at home.
