    Hello all

    I have been bringing in more kydex and related items for sheath and holster making.
    Color selection will increase as orders arrive.
    Barry king snap setters are in stock and I have added a strap material suitable for cold wet and miserable. The material is a half inch wide and perfect for forming belt loops.

    Good to know and those prices look really good for 12”x24” unless shipping costs are astronomical. I would personally be looking for 0.08” black at some point for sure. Currently I’m decently stocked up though.

    I use 0.08” because my current approach is to make belt loops as part of the kydex sheath

    The strap I am bringing in will make belt loops much easier.
    First order is black but brown is an option as well.
    The 1 1/2” strap is good for duty belts, product is intended to be used on horse harnesses so strength is respectable

    Awesome news John...I need some!

    So the 0.08 will use the 8-9 eyelets correct? Do you have the eyelet dies too John? I’ve been looking at the set on knifekits...but prefer to shop local as you know.

    Yes the GS8-9 eyelets work on the 0.08" Kydex.
    I have eyelet anvils and setters. not the fancy ones from knifekits right now but plan on restocking them.

    The 1/2" strap stock came in today and epoxy next week.

    John, sorry to be a pain in the butt, ...but...the eyelet setters you have, for the GS 8-9, do I select the 1/4” set?
