Picture of Duct Tape & Milk Jug Knife Sheath
I wanted a super small and lightweight sheath for the knife in my Pocket Survival Kit (PSK).

A Kydex sheath would likely take up way more real estate than this sheath.

Cut the plastic to the shape of the knife blade.

This is very good. I tried it for my buck skinner knife and it makes a great "mountain man" style sheath. With one of those, you put it under your belt and the tighter the belt, the better it holds your knife in. Also, put it under your elastic to carry concealed.
Mountain Man never had plastic. Use wood, leather, or bone. Much nicer for a Mt. Man outfit.!

Nice little knife. Going to cut one out now. I use old steel and iron I find. Drill press and grinding wheel are my friends!

did this one today...really liked it since I had a soft case for my camping knife. Thinking maybe if trace the outline of the knife from both sides and cut out as one piece might work better for me. My knife is a LITTLE bigger than yours. I really did like this...good job!!

pretty cool ! Did you try to heat seal the edges before you taped it up?
