Barber Leather Works

I wanted to start a new thread and thank everyone for your support! You guys and gals have been great!
I also wanted to let everyone know about my new website www.barberleatherworks.com and that I am doing a lot more than just the Glock 19 and Glock 30 holsters. Under my products page you will find all of the models I currently have moulds for.
I am also now a dealer for FAST holsters.
These FAST holsters are the best thing since sliced bread! I use them myself and they are so great that I decided to become a dealer and offer them on my website. Whenever my gun isn’t in my Barber Leather Works holster it is on my FAST holster close at hand!

Thanks again to everyone and Im looking forward to making YOU a holster!

Eric - Got my IWB holster for my G21 today. Very nice leather and workmanship. And comfortable from the get-go. I'll be looking for an OWB cross-draw in the near future. Hope you can make one. Thanks for the great service and product. Mike

I had Eric make me a IWB holster for my 5 inch 1911. After wearing it for a while I can say that it is as good a holster as some I have had costing twice as much.

Eric was very helpful and the holster arrived quickly. It is comfortable to wear all day, sits well on the belt without shifting, is made extremely well, and looks good to boot.

If you're in the market for gunleather you can't go wrong with Eric. I'll be buying from him again.

Eric,
The triangular piece sewn onto the top..Is that to reinforce the opening?

Hello ragu1macrider,
Yes it aids in keeping it open. It will still collapse a bit but it stays open enough to reholster the weapon.
If you have any more questions let me know!

Thanks,
Eric

Thanks Eric my right hand holster for my glock 23 was delivered as promised. I just want to say that I have quite a collection of high dollar holsters! Not to take anything from any of the other great holster makers but your holsters rank with the best. My holster fit like a glove with no break in period involved. I would not have any problems recommending you to any Glock member or anyone one else for that matter. I wish you great success you have a made customer for life!!

Some pictures of my latest work

Here are some pictures of my latest work.
Please bear with me on my pics as I am no professional photographer

A mahogany holster

the backside

heres a light brown one. These are really hard to do because of the darker colors I work with. All of my tools, wheels burnishers etc have the darker colors embedded in them. I may have to make some separate tools just to do this lighter brown because no matter how hard Ive tried I cant seem to keep the darker color from transferring in places when I am molding and burnishing them. I think it still looks neat though.

A few pictures of the curve I mold into my holsters

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p>My holsters will hug you right out of the box and only gets better with time. Notice the smooth edges, It takes alot of time to produce edges like this. I have made holsters with a flat back but I have found that if you dont split the guns thickness it seems to bubble the belt out more on the outside and compromises concealability. Ive found that it is still comfortable and your body absorbs some of the guns thickness.

Stiff yet pliable it offers the perfect support and comfort for your rig.

Hi Mike,
This one is 2 layers of 6/7 oz veg tanned tight grained strap hide with the flesh sides glued and stitched together with the smooth side out both sides. I dont believe there is going to be a need for an extra stiffener as it supports my Glock 30 great so far.

The Aker I had been wearing was ok but wasnt really doing it for me. It had the thinner cheaper looking leather (probably chrome tanned leather) with what felt like a plastic stiffener. It felt kind of cheap and didnt support as well as I thought it should so I thought id try my own and see how it works out. So far so great!
Ive been wearing it for a while now and it really supports well. Id like to wear it for a while longer before I offer them.

Im not sure on price yet. I havent thought to much about it so far. I cut this one by hand with a straight edge and I havent gotten into the buckles to much yet. The buckle and keeper on the test dummy are off of my old Aker gunbelt. If you are interested, when I feel comfortable with it I can let you know.

Thanks!
Eric
