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.

If you want one of your very own, please feel free to order below.

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).

Orders closed. That was quick.

If you were sitting on the fence, I apologize.  If you ordered, I appreciate it.  My backlog/wait-list has reached the limit that I’ve set for myself.  Any longer and I lose sleep, throw up blood, and start trying to work 24-hours a day.  Naw, it’s not really that bad.

GIBSON BLACK N BLACK CHERRY CROSSCUT-DOMAIN--JAN 25 2016
Gibson Crosscut premium Hermann Oak two-ply gun belts. Black, and Black Cherry, 1.5″ wide with solid brass hardware. $199.00 plus shippng.  Made in the USA.

I like to be booked far enough out to circumvent poverty, but not so slammed that I can’t work on other projects.  Some would call me a lightweight.  Hell, my friends call me worse.

I’m blessed to be busy.  Thank you for all the orders.

I’d best get after it!

Brand-new week. Workin’ out the bugs.

GIBSON GUNBELT BLACK CHERRY CROSSCUT--APRIL 22 2015
(
Click photo for larger view)  THIS BELT IS SOLD

Still working out the bugs on the new website.  Had an amazing weekend…didn’t do squat!  Exactly the kind I like.

The gunbelt in the photo above is one of my hand-carved and stamped black cherry crosscuts.  It’s two layers of premium American-tanned Hermann Oak leather, bonded and stitched with heavy nylon cord with hand finished and burnished edges.  The thread color on this one is called “Henna,” and it’s a cool color that I use occasionally.  The buckle is a heavy, polished brass Weaver design with a partial tongue.  This buckle works extremely well on these gunbelts because of the 1/4″ thickness of the two layers of leather.  This buckle doesn’t require the belt tip to be bent outward for fastening.

I have a few things working on the bench, and I’ll be adding them to the site as they’re completed.  As I’ve mentioned before, I decided a year or so ago to stop accepting advance orders and eliminate the waiting list–the dreaded “backlog.”

Hope you have a terrific week.  I’ll be posting another bunch of completed items as soon as I can get ’em photographed.

Thanks for all the kind words and suggestions on the new site.
