Learn how to make a survival knife sheath in 5 min! We will show you just how simple it is to make a custom kydex knife sheath for a Condor Bushlore or any other fixed blade knife. Making your own sheaths saves you money and they also make great holiday, birthday gifts and stocking stuffers. These sheaths are great for keeping your knives safe while inside a survival kit.
Anybody experienced in making kydex out there that would be willing to make a Mora 511 sheath for me for some sort of trade? I’d really like one better than the plastic sheath it came with but I’m pretty broke and I could buy several more Mora’s for the price of some of those sheaths I’ve found online so its kind of hard for me to justify.

As promised here’s the kydex I made up for that Winkler knife .
The Customer requested that it look as close to the original leather sheath as possible and that it use the same style X belt loop and that it should be able to take MOLLE locks / Malice clips for MOLLE use .
So I made up a 2 part kydex sheath as similar to the leather pattern as I could get and fashioned a separate kydex belt X and a black leather version just in case .
It’s now back safe with the customer who appears to be very happy indeed ,as am I that hes very happy with it .
