    I agree. I think Bladerigs was the only dude who was doing them and it looks like he's no longer.

    Maybe itís not profitable? I donít believe there is a single shop taking custom work for such a sheath. I need several and Iíd pay for quality just like I will for a holster.

    I don't think it would be cost effective in terms of $/hr. Just the DCC clip is quite pricey. You'd probably have to charge $150 to make it work your while.

    Offensive Industries will do custom sheaths, dependent on model and their current production needs.

    I just recieved live blade and trainer sheaths from him. Live blade sheath is going back as the retention is too loose. Trainer sheath came out great. Took about 6 weeks. Hoping to get my blade and sheath back much sooner as it's a remake.

    Would you mind sharing how you contacted OI? I tried and failed to get a response from them before I started this thread.

    Thanks

    Bumping this to see if anyone else has input, or success with OI?

    I would try IG; although I recently noticed they eliminated a lot of the kydex options from their website, so perhaps they have moved away from it.

    Just a couple of thoughts - I'm just getting hip deep into this kydex bending world. But one of the challenge is, to get something right takes several iterations and hours of time. So, for it to be profitable, you need to have a few specific models and volume. Volume has to make up the cost. There is pretty much no profit to be had in bending a one-off knife sheath even at $100/sheath. Not because of materials (although materials aren't cheap either), but because of the labor involved in getting it right.

    That said - can you guys give me a general list of the kinds of knives you want a 'Sayoc-style' sheath for? I make no promises, but I can apply some brain power to seeing if there is a way to 'universalize' a sheath of that design flavor.
