For the select products we don't have custom manufactured, we handpick only the top-of-the-line manufacturers. To date, we have a relationship with Stimpson Co. that has thrived for nearly four decades. We've always maintained that the GS® Eyelets are the best in class, and we'd never settle for anything less. Domestically manufactured, the Stimpson GS® 8 outshines them all as the designated flagship eyelet within the holster and sheath manufacturing arena. There's simply nothing which comes close…enough said.
