Remember this is a Custom Kydex Knife Sheath that can be made the way you want it to be made it is not one size fits all at Armadillo Sheaths.

Q: Do I need to send my knife to you?

A. Yes and no, We have several blades in stock so you would not need to send those.

Q: Can you make a sheath for any knife?

A: No, some handle materials are not good for kydex sheaths. Soft plastic and soft rubber is not a good handle material for a kydex sheath. Because most if not all of the retention of the sheath comes from the kydex holding on to the handle, if it is soft rubber or plastic the kydex will slowly destroy the material.

 

Q: Do you offer any type of discounts?

A: Yes, I offer discounts for Active Military, LEO, and first responders.

 

Q: How long will it take to make my sheath?

A: Around three week or less from time we receive your knife, depending on work load ahead of your order and size of your order.

 

Q: Do you ship outside of the USA?

A: Yes, we do and have shipped many sheaths outside of the USA. At this time store items are not set up to accept orders outside of  USA so use the contact form to order.

 

Q:  What form of payment do you accept?

A: USPS and AAFES money orders, Pay pal, and all major credit cards. (please note that pay pal and credit cards will incur a small fee)

 

Q. Do you have a store front?

A: No, I work out of my shop at my house.

 

Q: I am about to order a new knife with an awful sheath. Can I have it shipped to you from the supplier and have you make a sheath for it?

A: Yes, I try to do all I can to save my customers money and sending the knife directly to me will save you on shipping. Please contact me first so we can work out the details.

 

Q: How do I care for my new sheath?

A: No real care is needed. If you need to clean it you can clean your sheath with mild soap and water. Keep sheath away from high heat or it will loose its form. This includes a hot car!!!

 

Q: Can you make the sheath Left handed? And will it cost me more for a left handed sheath?

A: Yes, we can make your sheath Left handed or right handed and the cost will be the same. Being left handed myself I understand how hard it can be to find good equipment for the Southpaw.

 

 

Q: What type of sheath should I have made and what are the advantages of one over the other?

A: I have a video that will explain and answer most of your questions on this subject.

 

Q: What type of belt attachment should I use?

A: This depends on the way you will carry the knife see my blog page for an explanation of the more popular types of attachments.

 

Q:Where do you buy fire steels

A: I have a limited quantity of Pro force Army fire steels available.

 

Q: What is the hole spacing you use on your sheaths?

A: I can make a sheath with just about any hole spacing you request. The standard hole spacing on the sheaths will fit large tek lok, molle lok and malice clips. But I have made sheaths that fit g-clips, and small tek loks also.

 

Q:Why do you not list your mailing address on your web site?

A: I don’t list my address because I want to make sure we are on the same page as to what you want in your sheath and what the price is before you send me your knife.
