    I’d like to be considered for your next gift/gear guide. I’d be happy to send you a sample Pliers Holster for you to evaluate. The fit is very precise and only two (2) models are available at this time. I’m sure you could find a striper fisherman around there with a pair of 6″ Titanium Van Stall Pliers. I call them “holsters” rather than sheaths because the pliers positively snap into place. No straps, snaps or velcro tabs.
