    First Foray into Kydex DIY

    Bought a few pieces of .06 inch black Kydex last week and have been pondering holster configurations. Ran a few tests tonight.....wonderful how it goes right back to its original shape at 300 degrees for a minute and a half or so.

    I do NOT have the tools necessary to make a quality holster. YET. New hobbies are fun.

    It is a very forgiving medium. We buy it in 4x8 foot sheets, but you can get 1 sqft pieces of verrying colors and thicknesses at knifekits.com. its 7-10 dollars a piece from them so not too bad. Depending on what kind of holster you are making you might get 2 pieces just in case.
