I've always wanted a "dangler" kydex sheath in the scandinavian style with the seam up the back. Would this be do-able?

Dunno...I've never thought to try that other than using Kydex to make an insert for a leather sheath.

The back seam would have to be wide enough to accommodate the rivets...which would probably make it ungainly.

Rather than making a solid high rise belt loop...a drop loop using nylon webbing could probably be made for regular fold-over sheath.

I've only ground a little bit off the handles for the sheaths above because the holders are so low profile.

If the loops are located on the front or back edge of the sheath, then I generally don't have to alter them.

Thanks

Mostly from Kitknife - I've bought from a few other knifemaking suppliers too.

hey spork,

Do you like to have alot of extra kydex on the working end of the sheath when you are first forming it? Any rules that you tend to use? I've found that I really keep skimping on it and it has left me to need to re cut kydex.

I had that problem starting out too...using a starting dimension of 4.5? x 6? usually leaves me with enough extra length at both ends for trimming with the average Mora.
