Thread: Plastic inserts for knife sheaths?

  1. #1

    Question Plastic inserts for knife sheaths?

    With the discussions in the knife thread with regard to knife hygiene it occurred to me that there must be a market for plastic inserts for knife sheaths, as in something slim and fitted to a 'generic' blade profile that one could put inside a leather sheath (or get a leather sheath made to fit over). I've never seen such a thing though? Do they exist?

    The closest thing I've seen is David Stretton's stainless insert for his bone saw.

    All my knives with leather sheath's have the inserts Alex, I bought them that way and always thought "that" was normal but obviously not.

    Hi Rangefinder,

    Not in my (admittedly limited) experience, no. What knives do you have?

    I'm pretty sure they can be bought from Attleborough accessories.

    Damn. Ok, let me re-phrase the question.... where do I find plastic inserts for my multitude of disposable (loseable) Frosts?

    They come with horrible, impractical plastic sheaths but I much prefer to use one of Ash's excellent leather sheaths. A plastic insert would make the combination perfect from my point of view.

    Thanks Slamdunk, how does this work, do you heat-seal it somehow?

    cheers,

    There are two ways of working Kydex.

    1. Heat the entire piece in a toaster or oven, and then form it all at once.
    2. Heat parts of the kydex with a heat gun, and shape each part as you go.

    I suggest you read this http://www.paracordsecrets.com/articles/2/article.html

    Check out the whole site there are lot sof hints and tip and methodologies.
