Notes: Easy to use, heat formable plastic sheet, perfect for knife sheaths. Impervious to just about everything. I like to use a heat gun to soften and form the plastic sheet, but a lot of people prefer to use an oven. DO NOT exceed 400 degrees. Spend a few minutes reading the KYDEX Sheath Tutorial . The .060 Kydex should work just fine for the majority of your sheaths. Use the thicker .093 for larger knives or making belt loops
