    Heres one that Stu W made the mistake of saying " Do what ever you feel like for the Sheath"


    Ive wanted to try some layered pierced Kydex to see what effect you can have


    fittted to a tek lok large with stainless steel Chicago bolts gloss back finish for horizontal carry


    so to match the blue/black G10 and Carbon fiber of the Knife's Signature Stu W handle

    it gives 4 layers of Kydex at the edge 7mm thick and a nice chunky solid feel ( back is the same as the front as with my kydex it can be bolted on either way )


    this one had no particular design plan and evolved from holes to shapes to following the blade shape as i changed my mind or over cut a bit :O


    defiantly worth playing with maybe some scroll/fret work or logo design

    That's awesome, I'd love to see one in black with a bit of olive or desert sand on the inside layer...

    That is very nice. I do like the almost futuristic look of Kydex
