Leather V. Kydex (Round 2)

From the "You can't do THAT with Leather" file:
I've got a friend in Taiwan who's been making kydex sheaths for several years. Once upon a time I torture tested one of his sheaths. I dropped a sheath into a bucket of water and left it in the garage for a week. At the end of the week I pulled the sheath out, gave it a good shake, put a belt clip on it, inserted the knife, and put it on my belt.

Trying that with leather will either leave you with a very long drying time or it'll leave you with glue.
