    The chap leather parts vary from 3 to 5 oz and the veg tan (including the horsehide) was split to about 4-5 oz. Thanks.

    As soon as I saw those I knew that they would appeal to people , because I know how similar wallets have really taken off and become must have items for many people .
    Card wallets also adhere to my love of simplicity motto and I have been using one that was given to me for a few months now .
    This brand has become huge in the EDC world of urban based people , its a real success story .

    Copper conchos are real nice and wallets are great and they will be a bigger hit if you sell them with those folded twenties:)

    Just finished these up and shipped them. Border stamped and tooled with a brand. This set is lined with 4 to 5 oz California belt latigo. Got tired of splitting that bridle leather and bought a side of belt latigo for lining. The top parts are 7/8 oz Herman Oak.

    Roughout keeps on rolling out of this shop. One of my Rangeflap holsters (and for you gun guys a really cool one, three screw Ruger flattop Blackhawk in .44 spcl). Initials are stamped on the flap, then bevelled in and dyed to look like a brand. I was a little nervous dyeing the roughout this way, I was afraid of the roughout fuzzies wicking the dye out but it wasn't much of a problem.

    Horsewright, what tools did you use to bevel the initials, that looks incredible! the center of each stamp stays even and smooth. I've tried to get that effect for a while, with really poor results. rtmind/randy

    Your holsters are awesome!

    I am going back to the holster thread for more eye candy!

    An older thread but one that should see the light of day again, as there are some really nice stuff in them ;)

    And here's a sheath I recently finished for my Lionsteel Shuffler in ebony scales, tightly made vertical sheath,

    G’day Dave ,
    I still check in and keep up with whats going on , but dont really have much to offer to the conversations these days .
    I have dusted off the tools a few times , and enjoy it when I do .
    I made my daughter a Purse/ Clutch thingy for a Special occasion she was going to , and was secretly proud when she recieved multiple compliments and offers to buy it .
    Hope all is well with you and yours , and the grass is green and the troughs full to overflowing.

    Ken

    I posted this pic on another thread. It’s my new EDC holster from Milt Sparks, the Summer Special 2. It’s an older design but still works great. The 1.25” belt loops can be changed out for 1.5 or 1.75 loops.
