    Horsehide with a touch of Zebra..

    I've found one of the characteristics that I like about horsehide is that when it's dyed you sometimes end up with some pretty neat looking "marbling".

    This is a set I finished up last week for a Browning HP. I thought the "stripes" turned out pretty cool, so I thought I'd share.

    Very nice. Great looking leather work as well.!

    Yeah, I've noticed that too--unfortunately, not everybody likes it and when I've told people about that characteristic before they have changed their minds. That said, I love the stuff, and that's a very classy holster!

    Thanks Fellas!

    Wastelander- I agree, not everyone's gonna like the variance in color. I personally like the uniqueness of it, and the fact that no two pieces will probably ever come out the same way.

    Mighty fine! Stitch lines are perfect, too!

    Very nice looking gear, I gotta say I love the marbled look. Kinda reminds me of birds eye maple or something of the sort, kinda like hard wood flooring, between the color and the variation. Which isn't by any means to sound like it doesn't look like an awesome holster as well;)

    Great looking rig though and workmanship as always is great.
