The Art of Leathercraft

High End Custom Leather Products, Created by Dragonthorn

About

Dragonthorn Leatherworks is a full custom leather shop. I have been working with leather since the late 60’s (I was 14 when I started dabbling), and the company has been around since 1999. We specialize in custom leather products of all types, sizes, designs, etc. A unique advantage in dealing with Dragonthorn is the customer interaction. I firmly believe in giving the customer “exactly” what they want. I do consistently offer suggestions and/or design elements to a current or prospective customer but only as it pertains to how leather is worked and what is possible based on the price level agreed upon in advance between us and the client.

December 20, 2014 – Whew buddy! This is one tired little Santa’s Leather Elf! Many of you may not know it but Christmas season in the custom leather business starts in July and goes full tilt until about now… Been a good year. Doing this full time now as I got really fed up with the corporate BS world! For those of you that have orders placed, no worries… on them now. Taking a few days off New Years week to re-kindle the batteries but will be checking emails and doing leather project design work at our house in the mountains of North Carolina. Of course I’ll be sitting in front of a fireplace with snow outside and a good Bourbon in hand but otherwise… still working on your stuff. Thanks to all that have made DragonThorn Leatherworks successful. Another year coming up with more stuff to do! Ho Ho Ho…  DH

I had a small supply of the pocket clips that came on the knife sleeves they supplied for their knives but alas, ran out and could not locate additional stock. Sad sad were the days after learning about the unavailability of these clips… Happy happy are the days now that I have found a new supplier!!! These clips are high end stainless steel with a semi-mat/stone washed finish. Clip dimensions are 68mm long x 6.5mm wide x 7mm tall.

Medieval Dagger Sheath

Medieval Dagger Sheath

The Medieval Dagger Sheath pictured above was commissioned by a young lady on the west coast that is very involved in the ren-faire circuit. She also happens to be a quite popular costumer and seamstress for ren-faires and cosplay conventions. As such she needed someone to make a sheath for a friend of hers. He recently aquired a 12″ dagger and she wanted to get him something special for it.  The sheath itself is made of 10 oz. vegetable tanned “pink” hide and dyed a very dark show brown using Fiebings professional oil dye. The sheath is lined with a tobacco colored pigskin and the lining is continued in the belt loop portion of the sheath. The design...
