New Holster from Kusiak Leather

So I recently purchased a new holster from https://kusiakleather.com/ and I thought you guys/gals might be interested. I purchased the 'Minimalist' holster (previously was called the 'Bare Bones'). It does not have an actual retention strip like most leather holsters but it is pretty structured which results in the holster staying open even when the firearm is drawn.

I was looking for something that would slow down the wear on the slide because I had been using a kydex 'Atom' holster from Clinger Holsters and was noticing wear after only carrying for a short time. Time will tell if this is a good holster or not but so far it is immensely more comfortable than my Atom holster and is bound to be easier on the finish.

I'm also reasonably sure that the lower screw was digging into my hip causing significant discomfort and resulting in me having to shift the holster after every 10-15 minutes. That area is completely eliminated in the Kusiak holster and I wear this thing for hours without ever noticing that I am carrying. At $36 before shipping ($42 and change after shipping) I think this will fit the bill nicely. I have already ordered another one for my Shield and I'm hopeful it will be just as comfortable.

I'm including pictures of both holsters.

i talked to the owner and the minimalist "signature" is actually molded to P938 even it says Micro 9.

he told me that the mold he use for Micro 9 is the "old fashioned" model

Well, whichever mold they use, the gun fits great, is softer than Kydex and still manages to "hold open" when the gun is drawn.

Those old fashioned holsters look pretty awesome. I kinda wish I had purchased one of those instead, but I am very happy with the one I got so I guess I'll just have to live with it. Good luck with yours.

I know this is an older thread, but I am waiting on my Minimalist for my Micro 9. It should be here this week. I had one for my Kahr PM9 and the gun disappeared under my belt.

Since I had a Kusiak in the past for my Kahr PM9 I was fully aware of the quality. The quality is no different for the Micro 9. It fits perfectly and lies very flat to the body for CCW. You can find more and less expensive but you won't find better. Here are my pics:
