DIY Video - How to Make a Fold Over Knife Sheath w/ Tek-Lok Attachment Using KYDEX®

In this video, HolsterSmith.com shows how to make an 1-piece knife sheath. The knife sheath in this demonstration video was made with a Desert Fox KYDEX® thermoform sheet. The video covers the complete knife sheath build from molding to final sanding and polishing. Desert Fox is one of our most popular color options and makes a great addition to any fixed blade knife sheath.
