Gunting Holster

Postby mac_heath » Tue Aug 12, 2003 12:00 am

I'm looking for a skunkworks holster for my gunting. I've tried to call the number located at: http://members.ispwest.com/doughunt/sku ... heaths.htm



but there was a woman's voice on the machine. It sounded residential. I also tried the email listed there. (skunkworks@aol.com?) to no avail. Anybody have current information on where I can obtain a holster? Thanks.

Go ahead and leave a message..it might get to him..that's his girlfriend's voice...
Frank is in the Police Academy right now and working Corrections..so he's not making alot of plastic right now..
So you can get plastic from Mike @ River City Sheaths or Rob @ Survival Sheaths..
check out www,CSSDSC.com
the guys there will send you to the right guys!
OK?
be safe

Robert Humelbaugh's website is www.survivalsheath.com and Mike Sastre is at www.rivercitysheaths.com . I have personally dealt with Robert and he is fast, having made me six custom Gunting sheaths with a turnaround of about two weeks. His standard belt sheath holds the Gunting in the OPENED position, so if you want the clamshell-style that holds the Gunting in the closed position, be sure to let him know.

Thanks for the info guys. BTW, just got the live blade yesterday. It's got a number 437 just above the spyder hole. Anything special 'bout that?


And I know, don't open it on yer leg.

wow..you got a numbered Gunting..very cool..
first ones were numbered..
Get Mike or Rob to make you a holster that holds it closed..it limits function if its open already..
you want fast open? get a wave.
Want it open all the time? get a fixed blade..
Want open on demand? use the Gunting and enjoy!!!
Clinton makes a horizontal holster..
very cool stuff..

be safe

Hey Bram,

Thanks for the recommendation on the horizontal holster! Mac_Heath, I have pictures of version 2 up at the cssdsc website. Not sure if horizontal carry is what you want, but...

Thanks again all for your advice. I have a vertical carry belt sheath coming. Looks like my next purchases are going to be Bram's DVD's. When I get the cash.

Just wanted to say thanks again to everyone. It's hard to choose one sheath maker over another. I ordered mine from Rob at Survival Sheath. I want to say that he did an excellent job. The gunting fits smoothly in the sheath, I have no trouble drawing it, yet it remains secure. I'm quite pleased with my purchase and would recommend him for any work. For me, a sheath is the best way to carry a gunting.

Thanks too to Bram for an excellent design, and Spyderco for perfect execution. Though I can't carry it at work, it's on my belt in the car and out of work. I spend a good bit of time on the road, and count on the Gunting not only for EDC and SD, but figure I can use the blade horn as a glass breaker in a pinch.

Hello,

i am very interested into purchasing a Spyderco Gunting knife. I really like the idea of multiple self defense options it offers. I believe Mr. Bram has come up with a great knife that has a great future ahead.

I have seen that most of the people, that are using the Gunting, are carrying it in a holster. I always have a knife on me (spyderco police), but in my country it has to be a concealed carry. So carrying it in a belt holster is not really an option.

What i would like to ask is if the knife fits well into jeans pocket and can be worn there comfortably? I have noticed, that the clip was put lower due to its functions. Does the protruding end of the knife stick out too much?

Thank you for your answers.

You may be interested in a pocket rocket from www.gunting-museum.com. See the website for a video download of how it works.

I saw Mike Sastre at the Blade Show, and bought one of his belt sheaths, which is far sturdier than the Skunkworks sheaths I already had. Mike did not have any of his Pocket Rockets, or I would have bought one of those also.

Rex,

Should have a new batch of Pocket Rockets done by next week. I'll also be sending some to Vince at Omega tactical.
