The Knight Kydex holster is a highly customizable and versatile holster offering three adjustable retention points and a very agreeable size. The small footprint of the Knight makes it a pleasure to wear. The adjustable retention takes it a step further by allowing the user to zero in their exact retention preference. The size and overall functionality of the Knight is what has made it a favorite among custom Kydex holsters. Not capable of a Light/Laser bearing function.

About the Knight
The Knight Holster was my second original design. It came on the heels of the Reign Wave holster, which we no longer offer. A picture of the Reign Wave can be seen on our About Us page. The Knight was not a difficult holster to design because I was able to use the Reign Wave holster as a foundation. I cut on it until the "foundation" was no longer the same. I turned it into a completely different holster. I built quite a few of them and made changes to each one until I got the design looking how I wanted. I also wasted a lot of material while getting the design right. Having wasted a lot of time and money on perfecting the holster, I still think it came relatively easy. I always believed I would eventually get it right so I never stressed over it. I just had to jump through some hoops to get it right and I was ok with that. Once I got it right, I was blown away. Not only did I have a Kydex holster that I believed people would like but I had one that I wanted to wear. Soon after completing the Knight holster, I began selling holsters on GunBroker for the first time. I had the Knight and the Reign Wave designs. I was surprised to see that every holster I put up for sale sold fairly quickly. It was a while before I got the Reign Tactical website online. I worked for what seemed like forever to get it up and running. Then one day the website was open for business and....I got no sales for 3 months. I had to go back to selling on GunBroker and just wait for sales on the website. Then finally I got a sale and then another sale. The Knight holster was my second original design and it was the second holster to sell on the website.
The Reign Wave is no longer offered for order. We felt it was time to retire it. It had been selling for almost 6 years when we finally discontinued it. We had to make way for other holster designs. The Knight is still going strong in the sales department and we don't have any plans to discontinue it.
This option is asking which side of your body you will be carrying your pistol / holster on. Are you right or left handed?
The Cant is the degree at which the holster rides. 0º has the barrel pointing straight down.
The Sweat Guard gets its name from the protection it offers the pistol from sweat. The sweat guard is most often used as a barrier for ones shirt. Tuck your shirt behind the sweat guard and it will prevent your shirt from falling into the holster when the pistol is drawn.
Medium Sweat Guard is by far our most common. It is approximately 1" short of being a Full Sweat Guard.
Sweat Guard: None is our recommendation for holsters being worn in the Appendix Location. A sweat guard tends to be uncomfortable when worn appendix.
Sweat Guard: None is our recommendation when using an OWB mount that offsets the holster from the body such as the G-Code RTI system.
Below is an image showing approximate heights of Sweat Guards.
Dependent Option: The exception to the Sweat Guard height rule is this:
The Sweat Guard cannot be cut lower than the Front Guard. It must be equal in height or higher than the front guard. If you ask for no Sweat Guard and also ask for a standard front guard (Shooters Cut: NO) , your sweat guard will be the same height as your front guard. If you want NO Sweat Guard, in the "Shooters Cut" option, choose "YES".
The "RMR Cut" is for red dot optic equipped pistols. The holster is cut down to the breech face to allow room for the red dot optic.
Note: The holster will function perfectly fine with an RMR Cut even if your pistol does not have a red dot optic on it.
Commonly referred to as "Tall Sights" or "High Sights", this option will allow your holster to accommodate up to .500" tall sights. Suppressor Sights are used with suppressors/silencers as well as with red dot optics.
If you do not know whether your sights are Suppressor Sights, chances are, they're not. The vast majority of night sights are not Suppressor Sights.
Note: The holster will work fine when built for Suppressor Sights whether you currently have Suppressor Sights on your pistol or not.
If you have plans of getting a threaded barrel in the future, we suggest you go ahead and have your holster built to accommodate it. The holster will function fine when built to accommodate it whether you currently have a threaded barrel on your pistol or not.
The "Front Color" of the holster is the outer-most layer of Kydex. In the picture below, the Front Color is the Purple Carbon Fiber layer.
We have more colors available than what is pictured here. We are working on getting more color swatches added to this list.
The Rear Color is the layer of Kydex that is between the pistol and your body. In the picture below, the Rear Color is the White Layer.
Edge Cut will define a major factor in the overall appearance of your holster. The pictures below show examples of the different cuts. Keep in mind that different holsters will look differently even though they have the same edge cut. A Slim Reign and a Bora's Reign, both with the Flow Cut, will look differently. These pictures are meant to show the basic idea of certain edge cuts and not to show you exactly what your holster will look like.
Matching Mag Carrier
The "Matching Mag Carrier" option will carry over the holster color and cut options to the mag carrier. If you choose War Edges for your holster, the mag carrier will match. The same goes for Straight Edges, Waved Edges, Patrol Cut, Surf Cut, Flow Cut and Talon Flow Cut.
Note: Some cuts cannot be transferred to a mag carrier. For instance, the custom heart cut-out cannot be replicated on a mag carrier as there is not enough real estate on mag carriers. The matching mag carrier for a custom heart cut-out will have a similar flow to the holster but not a heart cut-out. All mag carrier cut-outs / windows will be a standard vertical slot cut.
Mag Carrier's come with only a belt clip or TekLok mount.
Mag Carrier Hand
"Mag Carrier Hand" is referring to which side you will be carrying the mag carrier on. Usually, if you carry your pistol on your right side, you will carry your mag on your left side. This option is not asking whether you are right or left handed.
Mag Carrier Orientation
There really isn't a wrong answer for this option. Ultimately, whatever you choose, train with it and become proficient.
"Bullets Facing Forward" is the most common option and is the choice most often chosen by modern professionals.
"Bullets Facing Rear" was the common option for the old-school guys back in the day.
As with everything else, training methods have evolved. Many of the old-school methods are still valid and are extremely powerful when mastered, the same as modern methods. Ultimately, the only thing that matters is that you train with the orientation you choose and become proficient with it.
The "Rush Order" will cut our standard lead time in half. Our standard lead time is noted at the top of your screen on the white banner.
Does your wife or husband ever get upset that you spend too much on gun stuff? It's a very common issue. We have been pulled into quite a few marital disputes over the past 5 years. We've even had a wife call and request to change her husbands holster color to pink. Sometimes life could be made a little easier with a simple letter. By choosing the "Marital Alibi" option, we will add a note to your package saying "Congratulations on winning this item!!!!". A copy of your invoice and how much you paid will NOT be included in the package. This option is a free service.
The Marital Alibi started as a joke but we have received tons of positive feedback about it so it's here to stay.
