    My first kydex project

    I recently purchased a Bear Ops Bear Song IV bali-song knife. The biggest issue was that nobody offered a good sheath for it. So I decided to try my hand at molding some kydex. I made a simple clamshell design and added a chicago screw for tension adjustment. I then slapped it on a Blade-Tech Tek-Lok belt clip and viola! Its perfect! Next is to make one for my Ka-Bar TDI knife.

    Needs better pictures, but looks good from what I can see. I do however freaking love that knife. I haven't owned one in that style in years, I used to have a bunch of them but they all broke/disappeared over the years.

    Its a very nice knife, but a little large. I am going to get a Bradley Kimura III. I have heard excellent things about the Kimura line.

    Very nicely done.

    Search YouTube for Vacuum Molding Kydex. There are some very simple vacuum presses that you can make with simple hand tools but you'll need a shop vac for a suction source.
