    I've been trying to make a kydex sheath for my Buck 119, but I keep buying the wrong eyelets. The first ones I bought were PUNY, so I tried Chicago screws, an whaddya know, twice as big as I needed. Does anybody have a link to the proper eyelets for kydex on Amazon? I have prime, so that's my preferred store.
