I wouldn't use anything thinner than 8 or 9 ounce. Mine are made from skirting leather.

For folders and multi-tools I use 6/7, but for fixed blades I use 7/8 or 8/9 depending on the length. For 10 inch plus or on request I have used as heavy as 9/10.

I use 6-7-8-9 (what ever's handy) on the outsides with 12oz for the welt. Vegetan.
