Yes, heating=softening=shaping. You need to press it to form it. If you form it prior to heating it could be distorted.

You can cut this 11.5 x 11.5 piece in half and use 2 pieces 11.5 x 5.75 to mold a sheath no problem.

I've been using the same piece of this specific foam for over 6 years (roughly 200 sheaths) now and still don't need to replace it. https://www.knifekits.com/vcom/sheathho ... -4292.html
Apparently this stuff is the new "latest, greatest" version. I haven't tried it, but I'm sure it's excellent stuff too. When I need to order more I'll probably order this one next time.

That's really nice of you , I genuinely appreciate the compliment. My handles are a "labor of love" that take so much time I end up making about $1.50 per hour when I sell a knife (if I choose to sell them at all) . I just think a high quality custom knife should be as enjoyable to look at it is to use. I really just make them for myself and then reluctantly sell them if I need money to make the next one.
I just noticed this comment and realized you were talking to me
