    Amish belt from hanksclothing.com.

    Has anyone tried this belt for EDC? I see a few reviews that mention using it for carry but nothing about long term use as a carry belt.

    I have one and it works great. The finish tends to scratch easily but keep in mind you get what you pay for. For the purpose of holding my CCW securely it does just fine.

    I just took a look at it and it looks pretty good. It is a single layer of leather thus will not be as stiff as a true gun belt which is a double layer, glued and sewn but for some, certainly do the job. And the price is right.
    Go for it and let us know what you think.

    Good luck.

    After looking at your quick ship belts, I may just get one of yours. They look like they are just what I need. I like the one year warranty and the fact they are made for the job at hand.

    Thick is not necessarily good. I've seen several Amish slab belts turn to mush. What you want is a two layer belt glued and sewn for extra shear strength. Think of it like plywood.

    I've been wearing my G-19/Supertuck combo with the Amish belt for about 10 months now and it is as good as a gun belt for my purposes.

    The first Amish belt I got is good and stiff and works well with a K Frame or Officer's Model OWB. I ordered another in a different color and it is much softer.

    It's okay for the price. I don't mind hangin' a lightweight like a J Frame or a Kahr CW9 off of it, but nothing much heavier as far as I'm concerned.

    I have a couple and they work very well for me snugged up tight.

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy one of ABC's belts. I ordered a custom belt (non quick ship). The customer service experience was awesome. The next time I'm in the market for a new belt, Al will get my first look.

    I bought an original Amish belt just like that when I was in Lancaster Pa. back in the mid 1980's at one of their farm stand, there was a Lether crafter, Amish Man selling his hand made Belt's & other item's, I think that I paid about $10.00 for it back then, & I still have & use it with my holster's & I will tell you it is as new as the day that I bought it, I use KIWI Nutural shoe wax on it every now & then & it kept the leather like new, what I liked about the Buckle is that it has a Rolled up piece of metal wrapped around it, & it makes the buckle a little more sturdier than usual,Even now for the price of apx $28.00 if they are made like the one that I have they are worth the $$$$$$.
