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.

***SOLD!*** One-off. Star Basket for 1911 Commander

***SOLD!***

This is a slightly new design we’ve been kicking around lately.  Belt slide or “pancake” holster for the 4″ or 4.25″ Commander-length 1911.  This one is pictured with a Kimber Pro Raptor II with a 4-inch barrel.  The rake is 15-degrees muzzle-rear, with belt slots for a 1-1/2″ wide dual-layer gun belt.  This holster is unlined, natural Hermann Oak American-tanned leather with heavy white nylon stitching.  The face is hand-stamped with a Barry King star basket stamp, and Barry King flower border.  Retention and concealment are excellent, and the ride is high.  This is an excellent holster for open carry if one is so inclined.  Detail molded on the backside for retention, and the site track is molded in.

This one is available for immediate shipment.  $150.00, shipped USPS Priority Mail, Insured with Tracking/Delivery Confirmation.  If you want it, or have questions, send me an e-mail to BruceGibson@aol.com

Gibson Gun Belt Star Basket BK and TLF. 1.5″ wide in Natural oil finish with border.

This is one of the most popular of the many hand carved, and hand stamped belt designs we produce around here.  This one is the Star Basket BK in a 1-1/2″ width.  It’s hand cut from a side of premium, American tanned Hermann Oak leather.  Each star basket is hand-stamped, one at a time, the entire length of the belt.  Each tiny half flower making up the border is hand-stamped.  That includes the hand-sewn leather keeper.  Nothing is ever embossed.  (Embossing is used in mass-produced factory products where the design is rolled or pressed into the leather with a machine).

GIBSON STAR BASKET IN PROGRESS DOMAIN-JAN 30 2016
The stamping process. By hand, one at a time. “Old school,” and time consuming. That’s what makes it so cool.

The buckle is solid, polished brass.  This one has two floral engraved brass Chicago screws attaching the buckle.

All edges are hand-finished, hand-waxed, and hand-burnished for visual appeal and to minimize the effects of exposure to the environment.

All of my belts have seven (7) adjustment holes spaced 3/4″ apart.  This is both visually appealing, and functional.  The heavy nylon stitching is recessed into a stitch groove to minimize exposure and wear.

Every belt is finished with 100% pure Neatsfoot oil.  Unlike an imported factory, or department store belt, these take a minimum of three (3) days to produce.

And, yes.  I baby ’em every step of the way.
