Paid memberships don't see ads! ok, i am going to guess that all of us or at least most of us have tried to mold a sheath out of PVC and found it lacking. its just to thick to produce a quality sheath. so doing some research it seems that Kydex is best for sheath making in thicknesses from .06 to .08. where as regular Schedule 40 PVC is .109 to .140 making it hard to get those nice find and crisp details of the blade. so during my research i came across something called Class 200 PVC pipe. this will hold pressures up to 200psi and is in thicknesses of of .060 to .079 in PVC 1 1/4" thick. so would this thinner walled pipe be more moldable like Kydex? i understand it won't have the texture and look of kydex but it a much cheeper solution to kydex and it can be found at HomeDepot. so what do you guys think? have any of you use the Class 200 PVC pipe to make a sheath before?
