    Does anyone know if Eric is still making Skinths? I just placed an order for one and noticed that the site (or any of his sites) had been updated in years. I sent him an email a 5 days ago and have not received a reply.

    I am beginning to wonder if he is no longer making sheaths but he has the web site still up collecting payments.

    Of no one knows if he is still making sheaths, i will have to contact PayPal to get my money back.

    I received my Trail Blazer three weeks ago. I’ve found best way to communicate with Skinth is via their Facebook page.

    He's still in business: I emailed him a question a few weeks ago. He got back to me. Just be patient: he just takes a while.

    Yup, it can take quite a while to get any responses to email. I tried once. Waited a week and no response. Finally called and left a voicemail. Called again and actually got someone; might have been the owner. He said his assistant had taken a week's vacation so there was no time nor anyone to be bothered (his words) to check email. I never pursued further. Not for me. That must have been at least a year ago. Sorry to see it hasn't improved.

    L'chaim!

    @metropolicity is a busy guy, but his products are well worth the wait. While I've never ordered from Skinth myself my wife has when she surprised me with my Skinth Magnum for my birthday. According to her not only was the customer service excellent but the man personally replied to her himself. Even recalled that it was a birthday surprise and asked how it had gone over.

    Patience is a virtue.

    No dog in this hunt, myself, but like Moshe, for me a company or person who won't respond to e-mails is a deal-breaker.

    Just got my order! A Plus, an M Shield, and an M7. All in black with titanium gray stitching. Now to play around with loadouts...I think I need some new gear to kit them out. ;)

    Can an XL shield hold either a Swisstool or a workchamp? My ranger just got eaten by the couch so I'll probably upgrade, and go belt/waistband carry for this next one.

    Anyone used Skinth's WYW bag at all?

    Also, which models will fit an Altoids FAK?

    Thx!

    Chocolate Brown S Shield, inside of it I have a Victorinox Officier Suisse knife, small Coast light (not shown), pry bar, Ti utility cutter, and a Fisher Bullet space pen.

    I am looking at getting another one that will hold an Altoids FAK and maybe my Pixel 3 phone, plus the above items, and an electric lighter (same size as Zippo) and a Streamlight Microstream instead of the Coast light.
