    Ballpark range.....how much does tritium add to the cost of a HDS Holster?
    With very little knowledge of tritium vials, wouldn't the holster with a vial be very fragile regarding the vial?

    When I get my bronze or brass HDS, I am in the planning stages of a canted, two tone with a helicopter stamp and the brass buttons similar to the eagle in the posts above.

    For pricing go to the Thor’s Hammer Leather website. The way Dan embeds the tritium vials, they should be safe and secure.

    Definitely not finished ordering from Thor's Hammer. I'm in the planning stages of a horizontal belt carry HDS holster. The intermediate future may hold some other ideas as well.

    It's an extra $35 to insert a tritium, but the holster must be lined as well.

    You would have to beat the snot out of the holster with a hammer to break that vial. It is tiny and is well cushioned and protected in the leather. Would also need to be lined with the spots... unless you want your light scratched up.

    (Edited to add: RCS1300 beat me to it, but worth a look: )

    Looks like Hogo has been revamping the flashlight holster display page, some absolutely incredible looking holsters..

    As soon as I saw that Eagle holster in his WebStore, I purchased it immediately. Knew that Eagle holster would not be in his store for more than a few hours before someone else purchased it.

    These HDS flashlight superbly crafted high quality holsters are one of a kind that you will likely find only once in a lifetime. I think I am set now with six different Thors Hammer Custom Leather HDS holsters - vertical, horizontal, upside down, canted (2), and inside front pocket.

    I spent way too long cursing my web site yesterday!
    I decided to give it its own flashlight holster page, then somehow got all the images in the footer of every page.
    I think I finally got that fixed.

    I pulled the Hulk Holster and am going to take the tritium out and destroy the holster.
    I don’t like it much. Would rather use that huge tritium on something else. I’m funny that way.

    How about a right side horizontal carry Huey flying at night?

    That is a great look and I would consider it, but I am right handed and conceal carry on that side.
    When I saw the stamp, I got excited until I figured it would be upside down or backwards on my left side. I was thinking about a canted holster, but then it would be pointed down.
    You have so many wonderful choices, I am sure I can find something I will love, once I get my brass/bronze HDS.

    All with dyes. I don't paint the leather. It does get a bit tricky with dyes... it is very unforgiving.

    Don't worry. I made it mostly for me. I was looking at the stamp and wondering where I could put a tritium in there. I just like making stuff... like these...

    I made the bamboo stamps myself with a Dremel and some bolts. The Koi is the closest I get to carving.

    That red on the Koi holster is the same as this...


    It's just put on in many layers then a dull finish applied. Put it on light and you get pink.

    So many choices.
    Can't wait to be sure I'm getting a new Brass/Bronze HDS and I will place an order for my fourth holster. I know that I can't hold a candle to some of you, but I am running as fast as I can to catch up. I have an excuse. I'm old.

    I thought one THCL holsters was enough and now I have six. Unbelievable. What is also amazing is that I use all of the holsters at different times and I have not picked a favorite -- do not think I can. I like each of them for different reasons.

    I thought just one HDS would be enough, now I have 3 and use them all. I can imagine a use for another as well. Please don't let me get interested in holsters.

    There are many places a flashlight nut dreams of visiting, be it HDS, be it Jeff in his shed making Hanko tridents. Your holster shop is my No1 for sure , not just for a rum, but the smell of all that leather must be amazing as well. Yep, your shop is my number one place to want to visit

    Today I was able to use my Thors Hammer Custom Leather clip on HDS holster to attach my HDS light to shorts with an elastic waist band. The temperature was very hot here. Needed to fix some kitchen cabinets and needed the light. The holster gripped the elastic waist band firmly and securely and I was able to take my HDS light with me!

    If you are ever in Tucson, let me know. I think the shop is probably very anticlimactic as it is just a very small room in a very small home packed to the ceiling with tools and stuff. The worst thing is... I can't smell leather anymore. Customers who come over always say how great is smells... Haven't been able to for years. I would try snorting leather dust from the shop vac, but that just seems wrong.
