Custom Kydex Sheath for Rice Knife (Permaculturetools)
« on: September 08, 2015, 04:38:27 PM »
I made a kydex sheath for a rice knife that I picked up from Geoff Lawton's son at permaculturetools.

Front with button snap


Back with belt clip


I altered the shape because it looked to flacid


Clamped it good


Wally World toaster


Planning phase


Original out-of-the box

Danial Lawton mentioned that they also have leather sheaths for their rice knives, but he hasn't added them to the website yet.

Sweet, That's the only problem with these sort of tools is the lack of sheath options. If they come with anything like when I got my Hori Hori Garden trowel it was thin paper thin leather sheath that was pretty much useless.

I have several different rice type knifes, and even though I dabble in kydex I haven't made a sheath for them. I have a bucket tool organizer that I use outside and just carry them in that but your sheath is the way to go.



Here's a pic of the Hori Hori sheath, and a link to the article I wrote on it.
