Kydex sheath for a Kukri - Build alone
« on: March 08, 2013, 02:18:05 PM »
I have a spare kukuri. Long story but it lacks a sheath and I dug out a piece of kydex and started making one.



Only a few steps left. I must say what a messy job.

Great video, Yukon!   I'm tempted to get some Kydex now, and try making one for a couple of beaters I have.  I have all those tools, I just didn't know what was involved in making a press.   Thanks for educatin' me!

Pretty cool so far. I like the sort of hybrid fold over/sandwich style approach. Looking forward to seeing the finished sheath. :thumbsup:
