    Shark and Kydex. Isn't that sort of like lace on a bowling ball? Seriously, I think you just won the home made Kydex holster contest, at least in this judge's opinion. I thought the front part with the rivet could be reduced in size, but after looking at it I think the fin in front sort of stabilizes the holster. If you brought the material up a bit higher, over the slide stop's right side, would it improve retention with very little bulk added, or would that get too far away from your minimal design? At any rate, it looks great!

    Where do you buy your Kydex at? how thick?

    I got a 7" blade buck knife that had nice sheath out of ? some sort of fabric but its all torn up from use. Id love to try and make a new one

    That's some pretty slick work! You might also consider taping a pencil on top of your mold for a sight channel if you're planning to make and sell these (so you get good clearance even with taller sights).

    Hide and Kydex together?! Heresy!

    Seriously though, very nice work. Excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail.

    That's awesome!!! Does it hold real snug? I'm guessing it would. The trigger guard looks to be locked in pretty good.
