Finding that "perfect" concealed carry holster is almost a never ending quest for individuals who carry concealed. Most people go through a series of holsters in a trial and error process trying to find the perfect combination of comfort and concealment.

In most cases, handgun owners end up with the proverbial "box of holsters" that end up sitting around without being used.

Blade-Tech Gun Holsters

Founded by Tim Wenger in 1990, Blade-Tech is based out of Washinton State. They only produce holsters from kydex. At that time, kydex was new to the gun holster market, but Blade-Tech saw the potential for kydex holsters.

Blade-Tech offers an entire line of holsters, mag carriers, and flashight carriers in kydex. Being one of the first holster companies to ever market kydex holsters, Blade-Tech built an excellent reputation in the kydex holster industry.

Blade-Tech offers two different lines of products within their products. The orginal kydex line was produced using sheets of kydex that was handmolded. The newer Blade-Tech line is less expensive as it utilizes injection molded kydex versus sheet molded.

While Blade-tech has continued to adapt it's line to the ever changing needs of law enforcement and military, they have had their detractors. Some complained that the injection molded line was less stable and more prone to crack or break as compared to the sheetmolded style. While I personally haven't found that to be the case, I have seen some pics here and there on gun forums showing a cracked blade-tech holster.
