Gibson Saltillo Star Basket Leather Gun Belt. Hand stamped and handmade in the good ol’ USA.

GIBSON SALTILLO 1.5" LEATHER GUN BELT GUNBELT HANDMADE HAND STAMPED CARVED HERMANN OAK

The credit for this idea goes to a long-time customer.  I happen to love it–thanks, Mike!

This is one of our 1-1/2″ wide, dual-layer (lined) leather gunbelts.  It’s a cool color we call “Saltillo” for the deep red highlights.  This one is hand stamped with the Barry King star basket stamp, one tiny little star at a time.  The border is also a Barry King stamp.  Stitching is heavy white nylon.  The hand-stamped leather keeper is hand finished, and hand molded to fit this belt.  It’s also hand sewn with linen thread in order to avoid a metal staple, which would corrode over time and make a mess of the works.  The edges are beveled by hand, painstakingly dyed by hand, then waxed and burnished to a fine polish.  There are seven (7) adjustment holes spaced 3/4″ apart.  It’s topped off with a heavy, polished solid brass Weaver buckle, and two floral brass Chicago screws.

Black Cherry. First “plain” one I’ve done with no stamping or carving.

BLACK CHERRY--MAY 10 2016

A first for me, and I was a little apprehensive up until I got it assembled.  Now I want one.  Thanks Jeff & Crystal for letting me make something new!

This one is solid Black Cherry with heavy black nylon stitching.  It’s hand-made from two layers of premium American-tanned Hermann Oak leather cut from the side, bonded and stitched, babied and nurtured through some 30-steps before it’s completed.  The edges are hand-beveled, then hand-dyed (an inch at a time!), waxed, and burnished.  The heavy solid polished brass Weaver buckle is attached with two floral engraved brass Chicago screws.  The belt keeper is hand-molded, and hand-sewn.  Factory belts have a staple or two on the keeper that corrode in short order.  The lining on this belt is left natural, and the combined thickness of the two layers is right about 1/4″.  Width on this one is 1-1/2″.

My plain gunbelts are $150.00 plus $12.95 for US Postal Service Priority Mail shipping and insurance with tracking/delivery confirmation.  6% Florida Sales Tax if it’s shipping to a Florida address.  Payment is by PayPal.  To order, contact me by e-mail to BruceGibson@aol.com, or through the contact form below, and I’ll send you an invoice.  Delivery time (from order to ship date) is currently running about 4-weeks.

Thank you for reading.  If I forgot something, or if you have questions, don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail (or use the contact form below).
