    Very nice, in deed.

    On a side note, the Holster, with it's distressed finish, will look great worn with either a black or brown belt.

    Super nice job & great saddle stitching.
    You obviously take great pride in the appearance of your work.

    I always tell folks that want to start making holsters to learn to hand saddle stitch rather than using that damn speedy stitching awl which makes the ugliest looking stitches.

    Here is a pretty good saddle stitching tutorial. Click the link below. You may have to click on the "show" icon to view the photos.
    Wasteland is hand stitching into a stitching groove done with a tool called a groover and that looks even better.

    Groover - There is also a straight groover.

    Yeah, it kind of is :P

    I didn't really do anything special, it's just applying basic techniques in a slightly different way. If you look through my galleries on my site you might pick up on how it was done

    Thanks! The thought had crossed my mind, but really there isn't a good way to commercialize it without it still being handmade, and if it's going to have my name on it somewhere then mine should probably be the hands making it. I may still do it someday--I have to admit that the idea of having cutting dies to cut leather patterns the exact same every time would be awesome :P

    Very nice! I like that distressed look. I also like the overflap for the front belt slot. Tucker's HF-1 is pretty similar...that's another favorite of mine.

    Very unique color and style you have there. For your 3rd holster it is very nice. Keep up the good work.
