Default Some Of My Work...J Frame BBQ,4" N Frame Basket Weave,6.5" N Frame Floral Loop PICS

Here are some pictures of my recent work.All Holsters are Hand Made by myself from the pattern to Saddle Stitching.I only use Hermann Oak 8-9oz Veg Tanned Leather.First up is my idea of the ultimate J Frame BBQ Holster.It is done in Burgandy(It is darker than the pics show) and Black accents and edging.Everything is hand carved as well as Burnished,Saddle Stitched,Dyed and Boned.I don't see too many fancy Floral Carved J Frame Holsters so I decided to make One.If You see anything You like shoot me a PM or E-Mail at ********************.I currently have no wait time for a Custom Holster.

Next up is a Basket Weaved Holster for a 4" N Frame in Burgandy.This is a very nice flap Holster with edge stamping on the rear flap.Once again everything is hand done from start to finish.

Last is a Mexican Loop Holster for a 6.5" N Frame done in Two Tone Black and Tan.The Floral design is all hand Tooled and the Background is dyed in an antique dark Tan for great contrast.

Good looking leather!

To tell the truth, I use a Sharpie to fill in the black areas on tooled holsters. it's cheap, quick, and easy, but it works.

Does it stand the test of time? I would be worried about it rubbing off.

I don't know why it wouldn't stay as well as dye. They both soak into the leather. If not, it would surely be easy to touch up.
