Anyone ever use a Triple K Carry Lite holster? I'm looking at one for my S&W L frame. Also looking at a Bianchi Cyclone. In the pictures the Bianchi looks like a bit more quality but I like the design of the Triple K.
I understand Bianchi is made in Mexico which may or may not affect the holster.

The Bianchi line it top drawer stuff. Tripple K is
usually from 8oz to 12oz top cut steerhide. In English,
thinner and more flexible.
Being made in Mexico is almost saying being made in El
Paso Tx. About 20mi separation and same folks making em.

Thanks Wade. I believe that is they I'll go, besides the Bianchi can be worn cross-draw.

Been huntin for a 4" K frame border patrol holster for ya
off and on. Had a line on a vintage Don Humme model in
great shape but the old boy sold it before I could get
back to him with the money! was at the monster flea
market in Canton. Folks come from miles around on "First
Monday" there since before the turn of the 20th century.

Not familiar with the style you're looking at but Bianchi
makes great gear. Wore a Bianchi gun rig for parades and
presentations in the mounted unit since the leather was
so good. Took a mirror shine.

I came into a Cabela's gift card and they have the Bianchi Cyclone. I'll add a few dollars and order it.

UPDATE:

New Bianchi Cyclone arrived via FEDEX. I am happy, fits like a saddle on a sow though the leather is super stiff as it should be. Thumb break retention fits perfectly and the darn thing will hang straight up and down on the strong side or hang quite nice cross draw.
I like it.

Outstanding!
Glad to hear you like it.
Reckon you'll be the fastest man alive in your
neighborhood too!
But seriously, tickled you got a rig you can work with.
