    Couple of the latest straps I was commissioned to make.

    The natural pics are before dying black. Thought you might see the design better. On those two straps they were dyed black then highlighted with a weakened bronze pigment. Which gave a sorta chameleon effect. you had to turn it into the light to get the image to show predominately.

    Well it's not cloth strap cheap, but these will last a lifetime. Plus it's custom made for you, to fit you. I don't talk prices publicly because each is different according to how much work one wants. I have been told I am too cheap, but I know people are only willing to pay so much also. One's cheap is anothers expensive. Still there are those who simply don't care, or don't want one. I get that.

    Hey y'all, haven't visited in a while. Been busy at work. Just wanted to show some of the latest straps and such I have worked on.

    This strap was to commemorate a member's father.

    This one was made to look like old wood and had sort of a Spartacus theme.

    Lastly a holster I made for myself, based off the film 3:10 To Yuma.
