Asking this question strikes me a bit like asking a waiter for his or her opinion of the best entree on a menu. I never understood why someone would do that- it is personal taste. I like stingray, not fond of ostrich, but there are many willing to spend $800 for ostrich boots. You get the picture.

I really like the appearance of Cordovan, but genuine shell cordovan is not easy to come by.

Olympic archers use it for finger tabs, and it is ideal for this purpose. I can see why it would not be suitable for a holster on its own, too supple.

Mine comes from the sole source in the US, a midwestern company which selects it for me by thickness and grain direction.

I get about a square foot of the material for my personal use from this company every year.
