Nice intructable. Very neat.

How do you find kydex? Is it super comfy or more rigid?

SOG Twitch XL with a paracord square knot fob. Good knife, but cheap steel. Would love to have this configuration with a vg10 blade..... one can only dream.

Google kydex press. There are many different homemade designs on the web, I'm sure you can find a good set of plans.
