That is gorgeous!!!
Cherish and love that one.
If you have kids, sell them and buy good leather oil to maintain your holster

Nice. Is that your name in Greek or something?

Man, that thing looks cool!!

Seriously though; thanks everyone!

I was working on a different new design and it just wasn't working. I wanted to do something else to make up for that. Why not a totally unique one-of-a-kind job? The idea for an "engraved slide" holster was one I had thought about before, but hadn't tackled until now. The theme came to mind after remembering tac drooling over the MOLON AABE 1911 a while back. Definitely took a few extra hours coming up with the Greek design, but I'm really excited about the outcome. Problem is ... now I want it!! LoL.

More pics for the tac man later today. Finished up the dyeing last night. Today is oil and edging. Then it's matching mag pouch time.
