Well this is it, the end of the first month! That’s one down and eleven to go. . . yay? Today I decided to make a bridle leather belt, I picked some up yesterday and figured I’d try to make myself a snazzy belt from it, my god is this stuff nice!
I’ve needed some sort of cover for my round knife for a while now so I went ahead and made one. I didn’t want any metal on the inside of the sheath so no snaps, rivets etc. Turned out pretty well I think.
I decided I need to keep working on my wallets as they’re usually a big seller in the leather world. I also decided that gorgeous pull-up leather deserved it’s own wallet. So bam! Here it is. Personally It’s thicker than I like but I’ve got quite a few friends who carry much thicker wallets so […]

This is the nicest belt I’ve ever made, and one of the nicest I’ve ever seen. The other day I picked up a side of a beautiful red/brown pull up leather, super good looking stuff. I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do with it but one of the things I’ve needed for a […]
Here’s the second prototype, basically I rotated the first prototype a few degrees in an attempt to get rid of the bump just before the thumb to give the arrow a smooth place to sit. Clearly I didn’t rotate far enough so tomorrow I expect to finish the prototyping and have a single solid piece […]
