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

    Man, that thing looks cool!! :D

    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.

    Well .... For you, JD (and your money :D ) I think we could make something happen.

    Send me a pm when you want to get something going. Thanks!


    Here's a little better shot. Still needs the snap pieces put on. image-110880191.jpg

    I can see it in the new pic. I have a bad enough time reading English let alone reading Greek sideways. :p

    I really like the design. It looks like it will stay put and not shift.

    Damn, that is sexy!

    What's your lead time? Just started a new job and have been doing some reallocation of needs in light of the election looming. :eek:

    Longballer, that is some nice detail work and stitching. I would be proud to carry that holster.

    Thanks again, everyone! With everything life has thrown us the last several weeks, this is definitely helping to keep me sane. Now I've got to get my a$$ to the post with 4 more that have been ready to go for two weeks. Ugh. (Sorry to those patiently waiting!!)

    Anyway, here's a few more pics. All done but the sealer coat.
