wow, it's hard to get a belt for that price, and these are homemade! wonder what shipping is on them, I put one in the "basket"to see but to go any further you have to register and be a member and I didn't feel like doing all that!
I really like them too but only showed 1.25 wide. I don't go less than 1.5.
Carry 24-7 or guess right.

Just ordered one. Shipping is $5.95. Didn't have to join anything. John
The belts are a decent 1/8" thick. My usual belt width is 1.50" but, a leather belt that wide causes problems with some folks who carry with dress pants & slacks. These belts should help (being 1.25" wide) & the price is right. The Amish do nice leather work & they do some of the finest "horse leather" work.
Interesting very intresting indeed.
Nice. Do they make holsters?

Nope. They're pacifist.Originally Posted by Red Stick
thanks for the link.
Great price and they look like excellent quality.
I'm ordering 2.
Lehman's has been around for many many many many many many years. If they sell it, it IS good stuff. They're located in Amish country in Ohio, Near Mansfield Ohio.
Lehman's supplies many things to the Amish and others that you just can't find anywhere else. And the quality is top notch.
(If you love cheese, that is the part of Ohio to goto. Guggisberg cheese and Heini's cheese are some of the best.)
I don't think 1/8" is that thick. I want something fairly stiff otherwise it sags with holster weight. My GunnersAlley belt is almost 1/4" thick and seems about perfect. 1/8" seems too light to me.
It'll be interesting to see what folks think about them after they arrive.
They also don't believe in a lot of modern things, but they are perfectly willing to let the rest of us "sin", and even work in places that you would never expect to see them.Originally Posted by .45acp
If someone asked them to make a holster, and it didn't violate the level of technology they restrict themselves to, I think they would do it.
I am thinking of these for the members who carry with dress type pants where typical gun belts are too wide and thick for their belt loops.
Seems like this width and thickness belt would fit the bill and the price is sure great for a hand made leather belt.
