Well, I'll play the contrarian. I like the look. But it doesn't look "worn" to me. The pattern looks too regular ... as if intentionally "distressed" rather than the look it would get if "well used." Maybe that's the look you wanted. My preference would be more toward a holster that showed signs of regular and rough use, but still lovingly cared for. I think that would suggest a modest working man's rig, scuffed at the toe, maybe some scratches from the occasional briar (which would tend most likely to east-west), etc.

Your leather working skills are far superior to mine (non-existent), so I probably shouldn't be talking. But you asked. My opinion, of course, is worth what you paid for it.
