OK kids, let's make a pvc knife sheath

Do you have a knife lying around that you have lost the sheath for?  Have you made a knife and not made a sheath yet? Would you like to just have an extra sheath?  Are you just that bored that you would like something creative and constructive to do?

Good.  Let's make a knife sheath.  And there is no stitching or lacing or any other type of leather work involved.  Mainly because you don't make it out of leather.  You use a short piece of PVC pipe.  You probably have a piece lying around in your shop.  Or maybe in your trash can.  Or maybe you can cut a piece off of your neighbors plumbing.  Just be sure to get it from a neighbor that you don't like.  Anyway, here is what you do.  First you figure out how long you need it.  Then you cut it off to that length, then make these funny curvy marks...........oh hell. Just click on the link below, this guy shows you how to do it better than I could tell you.


  1. Hi, BD - nice post, I'm gonna try one. Question; have you done one, have any problem w/ fumes or outgassing from the pvc. two; your favorite books, "Good friends, good guns, good wiskey", is that by Skeeter Skelton? Any idea where I can get a copy? Been lookin' fer years... JohninMd.(help)

    1. One. No, I have not made a PVC knife sheath. We did cut up some pieces of vinyl fencing to make boat oars out of. It seemed to me to be pretty much the same stuff. We used a large pan of water on the kitchen stove, dunked the pieces into the boiling water until they were soft and pliable, then stood on top of them to mold them to our specifications. I didn't smell any fumes but we opened the window and door just in case. I don't know how safe it actually was but it worked and we're still breathing.

      Two. Yes, that is correct. Skeeter Skelton wrote that book and I consider it very entertaining. Have you looked on eBay? There are a couple of them on there right now but they ain't cheap. I would have to think long and hard about selling my copy. And then I probably wouldn't do it. Good luck.

  2. Would'ent expect you to sell it, Pard. That's a keeper. Skeeter and Bill Jorden were damn entertaining gun 'riters back in the day. I enjoy your blog, keep up the experimentin'!! JohninMd(help)
