Default 1st go with Kydex

Got all my gear on thrusday and been having a play since, its definately not as easy as it looks in the videos, where all of them are made by practised professionals!!

I am particularly pleased with the SAK soldier sheath, it holds it brilliantly and I love a knife on my keys, but hate cutting things with all the keys attached, so I can pop it out without any fuss. I also put it on a trigger clip for easy removal if I need to go into a pub or anywhere it may be deemed 'threatening'.

It also gives me a chance to show my new user I have just built, small enough to be out of the way and big enough for all the tasks I need, used it at work today and it fulfilled all of my expectations.

Thanks,

Will

Looking good Will.....

We should have the black rivets and Chicago bolts in next week....followed by hi temp silicon rubber which will make moulding a tad easier.

Cheers
Tom

Ooh brilliant, are these the tec-lok compatable ones?? and a setter kit too??

I will get some of the rubber too when I upgrade my crap press, (two pieces of wood with foam in that is leant on...).

Thanks for the kind words gents.

Will
