Steve Agocs Kydex Sheath

Jun 13, 1999
I've never cared for plastics as sheath materials, but I've never seen them used well until now. As a sample, Steve (Chiro 75) sent me the sheath he made for his Perkins Seraph, and on first sight alone, the piece is impressive-- 2 1/4 x 2 5/8, 2 pieces of 3/32" Kydex 100 (sheath body and removable belt clip) fastened with 2 aluminum Chicago screws, 1 1/2 oz. total. All business, thoroughly molded, with well-buffed edges and no burn marks or irregularities. The sheath becomes truly impressive when one explores the varieties of carry possible with this simple design: pocket carry, inverted neck carry, vertical belt/waistband, boot, horizontal belt/waistband, pocket-clipped, inside-the-waistband, forward-draw, cross-draw, small-of-back. I'm sure I've missed a few, but these are the ones I tried after finding a Kerver that would fit the sheath-- and this wasn't too hard, really, because the Chicago screws allow tension adjustment. Moreover, Steve left just enough open space at the bottom of the sheath body to allow moisture drainage and evaporation. The Kydex is good stuff, thick enough so that, when it's unburned as in this case, I can't imagine its breaking or cracking unless I hit it with a hammer. Larry (from KY!) told me Steve's sheaths were built like tanks, and he was right, as usual. This is a truly ingenius design, brilliantly executed. Now I'm pissed because I have to send it back.

Hey, Sean, you can keep it if you want! Honestly. I have PLENTY of material to make more, including now black Concealex and Concealex in woodlands or desert camo!

Hey Sean,

Awhile back, posted somewhere, I asked ya if you were ever going to start offering Kydex sheaths for your wee wonders, as their compact size makes them naturals for a versatile kydex sheath as crafted by Chiro and others and now reviewed by you.
Whaddya say, Sean. Are you thinking of going Kydex?

And thanks for the great review.

Stay safe and all the best, Phil <-----<
Steve-- It done be gone, buddy; you should get it in a few days.

Phil-- Still a leatherboy at heart-- uhh, wait a minute, cancel that-- anyway, I am going to establish a link to Steve's site pretty soon, so he can serve all your Kydex needs. Right now, I just don't have time to learn how to work the stuff well, and I couldn't compare to Steve's work.
