Nice work. I really have to get the wherewithall to start working with Kydex. I've worked in leather for many years and it's a beautiful, natural material but I really prefer Kydex as a sheath.

Kydex is nice but any sand etc inside the sheath will scratch the blade badly. One reason why I put tape on the metal when forming the sheath for a little extra room. Also take great care to clean it after sanding during the finish work. I used special dies to roll the #8 rivets. The little Woodswalker makes for a nice necker. I have been also using a Balder in this capacity for a scandi necker.

My DIY I donít want to break my neck lanyard. Got the same one on the Woodswalker.

After this photo gave the leather a good neatsfoot oil treatment so itís much darker now.
