Does anyone know of some good suppliers of Kydex. Also what is the best thickness for knife sheaths.

...then you have come to the right place!
we will try to help you with your problem.
Interstateplastics.com is I think the best bang for the buck. I was going to buy just 10 sheets once, then i got free shipping by ordering two more, so now I have more kydex than I will probably ever use. The sheets are 12x24 too, so that is nice.
I heard these guys were OK...
Generally, I tend to use .063" on smaller knives like neckers. All the rest get .092".
Oops. Sorry Tracy. I love your site, and plug it whenever possible. I did get a deal on interstate plastics, though, but I bought a ton of it.
I bought all of my kydex from interstate prior to making Tracy's acquaintance. I must say that thier customer service is very good and shipping was almost as quick as Tracy's. Much Like Matt, I now have enough kydex to last forever it seems. I have all sizes and much more than I will probably use in the next several years. Now if I could just find a good deal on Tek-Loks.
there are NO good deals on tekloks
Unless you can get Blade tech to sell you a bunch at once...Might be something that Tracy can look into
I quit using them or even offering them due to the cost and availability...I prefer my homemade belt loops and home Molle thingies
Everything ends badly, or else it would never end.
I will be carrying tekloks one way or the other. I am working on it. I have been in contact with Bladetech.
Thanks everyone I also found another one who is just getting into Kydex but I know they seem to have good customer service and prices. http://springfieldleather.com/store/ Check the shipping cost. Can you get wholesale prices from that Interstate plastics website? update: I contacted Interstate plastics and they do have wholesale prices and free shipping for large orders so they have the best deal.
