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

In this video, HolsterSmith.com shows how to make a stunning 1-piece knife sheath. The knife sheath in this demonstration video was made with a PiranhaZ™ KYDEX® thermoform sheet and a Tek-Lok™ attachment. The video covers the complete knife sheath build from molding to final sanding and polishing. PiranhaZ™ is one of our most fearsome KYDEX® patterns and will make a great fixed blade knife sheath.
