In 1995, Tim Wegner began his experimentation in the kitchen to create a high quality knife sheath out of Kydex. Although several toaster ovens were sacrificed during the testing phases, he reached his goal in forming a knife sheath he was proud of. That is how Blade-Tech was born (hence the name). Since then, they have been producing knife sheaths, holsters, magazine pouches, and more…
Ryan Preece of Blade-Tech took time to speak with me and explain in detail their products that were showcased at Shot Show. They had a lot of great products displayed.
From their Revolution series of holsters for the budget minded consumer (under $30) to their HYBRID tuckable IWB with a combination of leather and Kydex (about $80).
Blade-Tech is also well-known for their competition series of products (which I own and I am very happy with). This year they’ve introduced a rigid belt for competitive shooters called the Competition Speed Belt.
Blade-Tech also makes an everyday carry belt which is casual in appearance yet contains a ply of Kydex sandwiched between the leather running the length of the belt, providing extra rigidity and eliminating those stretched worn out belt holes after prolonged use.
They also introduced a holster line in partnership with Packing in Pink (packinginpink.com) geared toward the ladies of the shooting world in a hot pink color.
As far as mounting options they have the TMMS (Tactical Modular Mount System) which comes with one male and two female locking attachments that you can mount to various parts of your gear for easy transferring of your holsters or mag pouches. It can also be used with their Tek-Lok which makes mounting a breeze by “clipping” your TMMS on and off of your belt in seconds.
For MOLLE users, they have upgraded to their new MOLLE-LOK clips which is simple and easy to use.
From what I’ve seen, whatever your need is whether it be duty carry, concealed carry, or competition, Blade-Tech has every avenue covered for you.
Looserounds will be testing some of their newest products soon and we will share with you our results. We appreciate Blade-Tech for their time to speak with us.
