I have a nice holster for my Zippo, but I haven't used it for quite a while. If I find it I'll post some pictures, this thing has seen a lot of wear!

^there's actually a quite reasonable explanation for this holster: A freshly fueled Zippo alway leaks a little bit. I used to carry my Zippo in the front pocket of my jeans, and when it was fueled up, the lighter fluid leaked through the pockets and gave me itching skin-irritations. i did not want to walk around in public with a fuel-itching crotch, and so I decided to buy that holster ;-)

I really used it long and often, and I became the "fastest smoker in the west", so to speak :lol:

BTT: what other interesting belt accessories could there be? I was thinking of two distinctive knives that I used for a while (not on a daily basis of course, but on hiking trips or for work, for example), and I might post some pics of these, too.

I've had a holster like that for years, but it had a leather snap closure for the loop and not a metal clip like that. I'd prefer the clip as the snap closure always came undone.

That's a cool zippo-holder Dingo!

Other accessories could be reins, bags, chains, clips, etc...
Or could use this thread for discussion - whatever we like :D

It's from a dude who does maille on Etsy...can't remember his shop name.

Here's my current copper chain, custom-made extra heavy-duty by metal-master Ken in Oakland, CA (same locality as Roy's :P)

Here's a very interesting leather Unlucky was nice enough to share with me :)

Brain tanned horsehide, deadstock (tannery closed down long ago).
Made into a hip pouch, lined with pig-skin...US postal style.
Leather feels like buckskin, with more density to it.
Incredibly soft, but tough as hell.
