    Hey Team,

    Got a ESEE 6 HM on the way from @FAL'ER . Problem is Im a lefty and the sheath is righty.

    So who's the Go to kydex bender around these parts now?

    so far looking at Armatus and Azwelke. My last sheath was from Regalia but I think Joe has stopped bending kydex now

    What say you?

    I use @rustybladeskydex. Nice work, quick turnaround time and very reasonable prices. Here's a few he did for some ESEE 4's we gifted to my supervisors at work. 20200413_194128.jpg 20200413_194041.jpg

    Al Makes a solid sheath, I wish he formed a proper drain hole. But a drilled one is better than the no drain hole on the Armatus.

    Make your own. With a little practice you can turn out quality sheaths and holsters. As a lefty as well, I got tired of trying to find holsters and sheaths I could use. So I started making my own. A toaster oven and a press and your own your way. A belt sanded and drill press will help as well. Left handed people are the most discriminated class out there!

    Hmmmm, ya know what... Come to think about it, I don't know his name in this forum but if you search "rusty blades kydex" on faceook he'll pop right up. His name is Jason Bennett... Great guy to deal with.

    @Allen Morrison bends some nice kydex sheaths too. He made me one for my izula that I love. Not sure if he’s still bending but that’s who I’d go with
