Here’s another of the holsters I finished last Friday.   I only have one of these.

It’s for a 4″ or 4.25″ Commander-length 1911, but the toe is molded open, so it will accommodate a 5″ 1911 with no problem.  The muzzle will be exposed with a 5-inch 1911.

This is hand-stamped one little bitty star basket stamp at a time, and finished off with a Barry King flower border.  It’s a right-hand, high-ride with a full combat grip.  Your middle finger won’t rub on anything.  Hand-oiled with 100% pure Neatsfoot Oil.  Hand-dyed, waxed, burnished and polished edges and belt slots.  The slots are designed to fit a dual-layer, 1/4″ thick heavy gunbelt.  It’s made from premium, American-tanned Hermann Oak leather, and machine stitched with heavy white polyester cord.  15-degree muzzle-rear rake, and a molded sight channel.  Only one of these, and she’s in-stock and ready to hit the road via USPS Priority Mail.  You can have it in your hands within a week–and, like most of them, she’s even better lookin’ in person.

$159.00, shipped.

***SOLD!*** Gibson Black Cherry Star Basket for 4″ or 4.25″ Commander 1911. Shown with a 5″ Kimber Raptor.

I finished this one (and 9 other assorted models) on Friday.  Shot a few pics–it’s for a 4″ or 4.25″ Commander-length 1911, but I’m partial to an exposed muzzle, so I shot this one with a 5-inch, Kimber Raptor.

Amazing Sunday morning.

Perfect day in this part of the country.  Nice and quiet, just the way I like it.  Working on a simple little project for an old friend over in Arizona that needed some latigo string for some saddle and chap repair.  Don’t get me wrong–challenging and complicated is always welcome, but simple is a nice change of pace.

It’s a nice break from just doing gunleather.  Mix things up a little, so to speak.  I do have a bunch of holsters I’ll be working on this week.  If you’re in the market, or just curious, feel free to stop back by–I’ll have pictures of the process as they progress.  As long as I don’t forget to drag out the camera.

Hope you’re having a terrific Sunday.

Saddle stuff, gunleather, and semi-unplugged.

It’s finally cooled off around here and I’ve knocked the dust off a couple of saddle trees.  The gunleather keeps me busy, and as always, thank you to all of my holster and gunbelt customers.

As most of you know, I stopped accepting advance orders about a year ago.  It gives me the opportunity to make the stuff I want to, without the stress of a backlog.  It’s funny how that works–something will “click” with folks, and you get buried in orders for it.  I think you have to have a personality for the “always booked” lifestyle.  It just doesn’t suit me.

I’ll be working on more gear for the 1911, and continue to dress ’em up with florals, oak leaves and acorns.  Probably throw some basket stamping in there.

When I have products available, I’ll be posting them here with the handy little “Buy Now” button.  It’s a win-win…I don’t have a waiting list, and you don’t have a wait.

Bob Klenda. Colorado leatherworker and saddlemaker.

I’ve never met Mr. Bob Klenda, but over the years I have become well aware of who he is, and I’ve also got several of his patterns, and we’ve talked on the phone.

A two word description?  Nice guy.

Sam Andrews of Andrews Custom Leather makes a holster with Hank Strange.

It’s a little long, but this is an excellent video done by Hank Strange in Sam Andrews shop down in Alachua, Florida.  This one takes you step-by-step through Sam’s process of making a belt slide, or “pancake” holster for a Glock 19.  Sam recently moved his shop from Alachua to St. Augustine, Florida.

Sam’s process is a little different than mine, but similar in many ways.  He’s been at it for some 40-years, and he stays booked with an extended backlog.  As a Maker, I love watching other Maker’s processes.  I always learn something, and this video is no exception.  One thing I learned from this one is that Sam Andrews seems to be a heck of a nice guy.

Awesome video from Hank Strange on a process I’m always fascinated by.  Check out Andrews Custom Leather here Andrews Custom Leather and Hank’s YouTube Channel here Hank Strange YouTube.

“Thin Blue Line” leather cuff bracelet.

I didn’t have a clue that this item would get the attention it has.  We’ve added it to the Shop, so if you want one, you can click the link below and have a look for information and ordering.

We’ll have a size/sizing chart put together shortly, but in the meantime, just measure around your wrist OVER your wrist bone, and we’ll build it from there.
