There's something else bugging me. I started working with Nylon6 after bad experiences with Polypropylene.
It's a quite tricky material due to its water absorbtion and probably requires industrial drying to get consistent results while forming (see the Knightshop Pro Line thread). I was thinking about trying other stuff like Kydex, ABS or HDPE. Has anyone come across any of these and can tell something about its impact resistance and general characteristic? Ideally I want something as rigid as possible and not cracking when hit. Any hint would be useful before I take a plunge and buy a sample. I'm especially interested about your experiences with ABS and Kydex.
Progress update: index finger done, works well and protects the side. Started putting together final version. Slashed three fingers with a Stanley knife, expect delay before the stitches come off. Sorry
