    Different! And seems nice work.

    But too fancy for me

    Those are different. Looks to be a lot of hand work involved.

    If there the same ones I saw, he wanted $250 for the one on the bottom.

    I have seen his stuff on ebay. Ditto that his prices are pretty steep.
    He has listed/sold a few magnificent cowboy rigs in the past.

    There was just a thread maybe yesterday about fancy pistols and BBQ guns. There's the holsters.
    I'd really like something that fancy, but then I couldn't show it off...

    Hhhmmm,
    I've checked the E-bay listing and read his lengthy description. He is describing shell cordovan correctly but what is pictured on the gator holster mouthband and loop does not look like genuine shell cordovan based on my experience. I have never seen a piece lacking luster, or with that much inconsistency to the dye, that much grain, or that rough on the back side.
    It looks like maybe regular horsehide dyed cordovan color.

    I agree...shell cordovan is too hard to miss. Good call Mark :D
    The hand stitching with the exotics kinds looks miss matched to me...just my opinion. Notice the snap on the crocodile holster is crushed.....the maker can afford crocodile but not the proper tooling to set snaps correctly...just doesnt feel right for some reason. But Im an anal holster maker........oh well. :D
    Shoot well and god bless

    It's a shame that this guy puts (obviously) a ton of hand work and time into his holsters that some few fine details could be polished up a bit. The triple cordovan lacing should also be tapped flat with a mallet in order for it to look its best.

    On that first pic with the lacing, I don't think I would want all that rubbing up against me all day long while carrying IWB.
