    New to me basketweave

    the smaller stamp looks better, as well the border is much better.

    Belt, Holster, Mag pouch set

    Really nice set. What weight leather in the belt? The double stitching looks great.

    Sheath, laced and lined

    I like them both, reminds me of an early day patch knife/ flint striker and the way you did the belt loop is really cool.

    I don't but that's me, I go to the center of the bend with my patterns. One thing you will find is your stamping will be lost a bit when you bend the leather so wrapping it completely around might not look the way you want it to. Bend your test piece to see what happens. Cool lil skinner there!

    Holster Liner Material

    its interesting as the topic of lining holsters is always going to create discussion. One of the videos posted shows building an unlined holster. the other shows what appears to be suede lined holsters a the end.

    I use a set of magnified reading glasses plus a headband magnifier for my small work. I don't sit in one spot for all the many different things i do in day, do my knife making in the garage and my leather in the basement, so a desk magnifier wouldn't help much.

    Holster Liner Material

    Personally I don't line my holsters unless asked. Seems lining good leather with more leather doesn't help much at all except for pleasing the buyer. I've toted guns for decades in the woods both lined and unlined and haven't seen a lot of difference in wear on the firearms. From my years of rigorous testing ,lol, I've found that there are three things that keep a firearm from wearing prematurely and getting dirty in the holster. A toe in the holster so you dont sit down and fill the barrel with dirt, a tight holster so it doesn't shift around and wear itself self as you walk and lastly and most importantly personal responsibility for the care of my firearm and holster. If I do line a holster its like Dwight does but i may use a different lighter piece for the inside.
