Pocket Check

Jim has the Buck Canoe that he picked from six knives that Bob presented him on last week’s show. Bob meanwhile has three knives (again). This week he’s carrying:

  • Reate Horizon B
  • Case Swayback Jack
  • Cold Steel Broken Skull, pink handle (his usual)

Segment 1 – Tip of the Week – Make Your Own Kydex Sheaths

All you have to do to make your own Kydex sheaths (and by extension holsters, etc.) is make a press, buy the materials and have an oven, a drill and a hammer.

Making Kydex sheaths is a relatively quick and easy craft to learn, and like any craft you can become great at it with practice.

I started making my own Kydex sheaths when I first considered carrying an EDC fixed blade but was unhappy with the lame sheathes that were coming with the cheaper knives I was trying out.

Segment 2 – Knife Laws (Virginia): Carrying Concealed Weapons

In the inaugural Knife Laws segment, The Knife Junkie reads Virginia’s 18.2-308. Carrying concealed weapons; exceptions; penalty.

We’re not lawyers and are not providing legal guidance or opinion, just providing the law so you will be aware and make your own decision about how the law might affect you. This week’s show is about a law in Virginia, the home state of The Knife Junkie.
