Butane Heat Torch Molds Kydex

Typically our butane heat torch is used for shrink tubing, but as we talk with customer’s more and more we have found many different uses for this little torch!

Kydex is a high impact, easily mold-able plastic. People frequently make holsters and knife scabbards out of kydex. This is all well and good until your mold is too tight and the knife sticks in this piece of plastic. See the holster to the right. Using the Micro-Therm butane torch, you mold the kydex to fit to your knife. Carefully move the torch from side to side over the tight area. This will loosen the material, letting you go on with your life easier.
