Who We Are

Our Story

In 2009, Matt made his own bushcraft knife with a blank steel from a high quality craftsman in the UK.  The knife was perfect.  But now the question was, how to carry the knife.  When Matt soon discovered he was not good with leather, he decided to give KYDEX a try.  His first KYDEX sheath was heated in the kitchen oven, pressed into shape by standing on boards padded with carpet scraps, and horribly lacking detail and professional appearance.  But it held the knife well, and the seeds of a new hobby and eventually our family business were planted.

Over the next few years, Matt continued to work with KYDEX perfecting his methods until he had a sheath he was well pleased with.  Friends and family began asking him to make KYDEX sheaths for their knives that came with less than desireable factory sheaths.  In order to fund this new hobby, Matt began to occaisionally sell sheaths on Ebay.  The more sheaths he sold, the more sheaths he made, until a part time hobby became a full-time business.

Today we average over 100 sheaths per month with the whole family getting involved.
