    Spare vinyl siding and machetes that don't come with sheaths. Well being frugal, this is what I came up with.

    Necessity and frugality is the Mother of Invention.
    KooKoo, while not my cup-of-tea, it looks like it'll get the job done. It'll protect the edge and you from getting cut.
    Does it come in OD? :)

    That certainly is clever AND frugal! Bet along the way you have spotted some great deals on your machetes too!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I have these two Ontario's and one 18" and 22" Ontario and they are great values for some heavy duty machetes and made in the USA. At about $15-20 each depending, what's not to love?
