Blade-Tech Holsters

Founded by Tim Wegner in 1995, Blade-Tech specializes in kydex and thermoplastic gun holsters and related accessories. Based in Puyallup, WA; Blade-Tech was the first real mainstream holster manufacturer to embrace kydex as it's only production material. At that time, some other manufacturers were doing kydex and leather, but they were really the first to be strictly based in kydex.

Blade-Tech Revolution Holster

No stranger to innovation, Blade-Tech was quick to start making both OWB and IWB holsters from kydex. As their popularity increased, they also started producing related items like:

  • flashlight carriers
  • mag carriers
  • knife sheaths
  • tactical thigh holsters

In the beginning, Blade-Tech didn't work on a mass production type manufacturing process. They actually used a press molding technique where a sheet of kydex was heated to the point where it became malleable, and then it was pressed into position, and then finished by hand.  When competitors first hit the market, they took a less expensive approach and used a production method called injection molding. In this process, the kydex was heated into a liquid and then injected into a mold. While injection molding is much less expensive than press molding, the end result isn't quite as strong as press molded kydex.

As a result, original Blade-Tech holsters were more expensive than their lesser quality injection molded counterparts. Blade-Tech established a much mower failure rate of their gear so they were able to migrate into supplying the kydex holster needs of various armed forces and governments. Eventually, Blade-Tech elected to expand their holster offerings so they also introduced an alternative injection molded line that was designed for a lower budget.

Blade-Tech UCH Holster

In addition to being a pioneer in the kydex holster industry, Blade-Tech also has produced some cutting edge devices like:

  • Tek-Lok - The Tek-Lok is a unique locking device that can be used to mount a holster on a belt or any other surface. The design allows for very quick release and attachment of the device so it's very easy and quick to remove a holster or mag carrier using a Tek-Lok attachment.
  • Molle-Lok - Similar to a Tek-Lok, the Molle-Lok is designed as an attachment system for a Molle vest
  • Holster with Tac-Lights - They were one of the first companies to develop holsters that could carry a handgun with a tactical light mounted on the weapon.

Over the years, Blade-Tech has continued to move forward with advances in technology and out of the box thinking.

Mr. Wegner has long been a blade fan so he jumped at the chance for Blade-Tech to make it way into the knife making industry. Blade-Tech Knives was born and has been releasing high quality knives for several years now.

If you are shopping for a Blade-Tech holster, you will most likely end up a happy customer.
