Fresh Off The Bench
« on: January 31, 2018, 10:15:20 AM »
Made for my Richards Mason 1860 conversion. The holster and belt are made from 9 oz. veg tan. The billets on the belt, along with the pouch and knife sheath are made from 7 oz. The holster is of the California pattern with a triple recurve throat and open toe. All pieces were moderately boarder stamped and colored an even "light brown" with Fiebings dye. I used linen thread to hand sew the rig. The pouch will hold an ample supply of twenty 44 calibre cartridges. The belt uses a brass center bar harness buckle to secure it on my waiste.

That is top-drawer, Scooby. As usual. Wish I had your talent for leather.
