This holder is really light, coming in a just 100g. It features a cut-proof plastic interior so even if you forget to retract your blade you won’t have a nasty surprise. The knife holder features two pockets, the larger rear pocket for the knife and then a smaller front picker designed to fit a ten blade pack.

This pouch can clip on and off any belt, so it is carried only when it is needed or when it is the only thing you need. It has 6 pockets and loops, including a plastic-lined utility knife pocket, pencil and screwdriver pockets, making it perfect for smaller jobs. Works great alone, or enhances any cliptech tool belt. With rugged construction and heavy-duty rivet reinforcement, this reliable pouch withstands the most rigorous working conditions.

The holder is a little heavier than the FatMax coming in at 150g although it does add extra versatility when compared. Is the extra versatility worth the trade-off in weight? That’s up to you and what you intend to carry, if you just want to carry a Stanley knife then though, but if you are hoping to use this holder for more then definitely yes.
