I have a few knives that have nylon sheaths.  I am really not happy with the nylon sheath.  Besides keeping costs down, they breathe and allow the water to evaporate off the knife to prevent it from corroding.  However, I am not really happy with a couple of them, and have been investigating sheaths online, and am having a hard time finding one that will fit my knives, so I am investigating kydex and making the sheath myself.  

Here are some of the resources I have found that might help me, and maybe you:

How to Make a Kydex Sheath Part 1

How to Make a Kydex Sheath Part 2

Well, this is on the list of stuff to learn to do, even though it looks simple enough.  Just Google “Kydex Sheath” and see a ton of results that come up.
