A Rainy Day Project or Two
« on: July 20, 2004, 05:39:57 PM »
It's been raining quite a bit down here in the sunshine  ::) state.  I figured this was a good time to work on a couple of holster/knife projects/orders.  I just love doing this stuff.  8)



Still have some work to do on the knife, but will be finished with it soon.

Thanks for the comments.  That's a good eye there, Frenchy.  Here's another rig I did for one of the top IPSC shooters here in FL.  He wears a western-style rig to carry his match revolver.  (Thatís my SA in the pic though.)  I really like tooling the leather, but donít get much chance to do it with the pocket holsters.

K-May:

Beatiful work!  I've been trying to figure out what that striking green material is behind the bolster of the knife.  My old eyes and aged computer monitor may deceive me, but it appears to be malachite.

RichardS,

Your olí eyes are working fine.  Thatís ivory, malachite, and Honduran rosewood.  Iíll post another pic of the knife once I have it finished up.  In the meantime, hereís a pic of one of my favorite holsters that I tooled for a friend (could you imagine similar tooling on a pocket holster?):
