It's very cool when a reader contacts you and THANKS YOU for information they gleaned from a post!
Tis' the case with Jake Starr of www.recycledfirefighter.com
Jake read my post on switching handles on a Victorinox Swiss Army knife, enjoyed it, and as a bonus asked if I would
be interested in reviewing some of his gear. I checked his site and then provided my mailing address.

***PLEASE NOTE*** I never used this as a wallet, except for a knife wallet.
Every day I used this wallet I carried a knife in it on my belt. I carried a number of different knives (as can be seen in the
And it worked perfectly as a knife carrying device. It kept the knife standing straight up.
The only curve ball I had was once a larger bodied knife had been carried in this wallet for a while it took it's form.
Meaning if I slipped a smaller bodied knife in, it wasn't flexible to secure the knife. I'm sure I could have placed the
wallet under a heavy object for a few days to flatten it, but I just kept placing bigger knives inside.
Size is 3 3/4" high by 2 1/2" wide and feels durable. It's sleek and sturdy.
I gave one to a friend of mine who I noticed was carrying his credit cards and cash with a rubber band. He immediately
began to use it and likes it!
Not a lot of "fancy" in this piece of gear, but a lot of UMPH.
I definitely recommend it as a way to EDC your folding knife.
Much respect to Jake Starr, who by the way, makes each item in his shop by hand!!! www.recycledfirefighter.com
