    Best supplier for Kydex

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

    Thank you,

    I get mine from www.knifekits.com or www.interstateplastics.com

    I use anything between 0.06" and 0.125", depending on the knife and use.


    I hope this helps

    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.

    USAKNIFEMAKER.COM ROCKS!!!

    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

    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.
