Those are beautiful, the workmanship on them looks great.

 

I'm gonna have to bust your chops just a little. For collectors who just buy knives to collect them and not use them this is great. People who actually use pocket knives for everyday tasks are not going going to use it. For one, fumbling around to pull the knife out of your pocket and then fumbling to get the knife out of the slip kinda defeats the purpose of carrying a knife. That's why many of them have pocket clips. Having your knives dinged, scratched, and marred give it character.

Some ideas for other products. Create a leather folio/roll for collectors that way they can put all their knives in it and either fold or roll it up. An actual belt pouch or holster like what a Leatherman would have.

I have to agree. The work is very nice and it looks like very good quality, but....While I don't abuse my pocket knives, they do get used. The concept of having a folder on you is to be able to flip it out and have instant access when needed. Having to dig out a sheath and pick your knife from it seems counterproductive.

Well it just depends on how much you pay for your pocket knives. Most of our customers are spending between $300-$1200+ on their pocket knives typically with exotic materials. So these sheaths complement them greatly. Also, they aren't just to protect your knife, they protect your phone and any other valuables you may be carrying in that pocket. I do agree with you though, that's why when I'm fishing or using a knife for anything else, i have a fixed blade in a sheath on my hip. Cant beat it.
