Fun With Kydex…

Kydex Digger Sheath

I have always hated the cheap naugahyde sheath that came with my short handle digger. It was loose and floppy on the belt. I had seen some internet posts where others had made Kydex sheaths for their diggers. I Thought I would order the supplies and give it a try. Here’s my attempt. I think I’m most excited about the probe holder. I use an awl for a probe because it’s stout and hard to bend. I mainly use it for starting holes in hard ground or packed gravel drives. I normally carry it in my pouch but once the pouch starts filling with trash then I have to dig for the awl. Got the idea for the holder from the knife sheath makers. They like to add the ferro rod holders to their sheaths.
