    Did you break your machine??? I made a sharky for myself. For some reason, my camera stopped taking pictures worth a darn. I'll get a picture up soon enough.

    That's nice, and the grips are a nice touch.

    The stingray's remarkably durable, multi-patterned and colored skin also attracted early craftsmen believing this power could be transmitted into their craft.

    The earliest civilizations believed the stingray brought strength and power to anyone who
    handled it.

    The backbone, resembling clusters of white pearls, was thought to be a protector of good luck and prosperity.
    Egyptian craftsmen prized the beauty and durability of the stingray skin by fashioning armor and other decorative items.
    These were discovered in the tombs of ancient pharaohs.

    Han and Shogun Samurai also used the raw skins for armor as well as handles on their Samurai swords.
    In more contemporary times, 18th century French artisan Jean-Claude Galuchat fashioned the stingray skin for Louis XV into several commodities such as sheaths, wig cases and snuff boxes.

    Others colored the skins and combined them with precious metals to make various crafts.

    But it was an American leather artisan, Rhome, who took the craft to new heights.
    In 2007 his American studio produced beautiful holsters veneered with stingray leather.

    Rhome's holsters are the highest quality handcrafted stingray leather and the mystical properties of the holster will protect you even if your firearm cannot.

    OK...so.....I changed it around a little bit!

    Unique, Original. Eye Catching...

    Nice looking...how do you make the 'leather' grips attach firmly?(backing?)...as strong as wood or ivory, etc.?

    Very nicely done, Rhome!
    Now stop posting and go sharpen all your tools; I know they need it!

    Beautiful work, Rhome. I'd like to hear more about the grips, too. That's quite a combo!
    Cheers,

    That is a very nice looking holster. As mentioned earlier, I would have a hard time covering that thing up. I would definately have to show it off.

    Rhome, I think you might just have a calling to be a Leather Craftsman. I Really liked the way the center piece centered up and all the edges of the holster and cuts for belt loops edges look to be turned and smoothed. Now start figgering out how to do BullFrog.
