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.

News

January 24, 2015 – Bit of news, Dragonthorn Leatherworks shop will be moving in the future. My girlfriend has accepted a new job in Salisbury, NC with the Rowan County Economic Development Partnership. As such my shop will eventually have a permanent move to Salisbury along with her. As we still have a house in the NC mountains in Boone (under renovation), I will more than likely move the shop to Boone until the Boone house is sold and we purchase our house in Salisbury. Anybody looking for a really cool house in the NC mountains let me know. As my business can be operated from any location (as long as I have a shop and a post office) I do not expect any disruption in services except for a two week period for the move and shop setup. This is all good stuff as my shop will be bigger and more comfortable. After all, I do spend a whole lot of time in the shop. Wish us luck and keep the orders coming.  DH

Tactical Flashlight Pocket Case

Tactical Flashlight Pocket Case

This Tactical Flashlight Pocket Case was made specifically for a “HDS Systems EDC Rotary Flashlight”. It is shown with my Surefire E2D Executive Defender as the HDS Light is way out of my budget level. The client wished for a case to either pocket carry or belt carry his HDS as in light of its size, although small, was a bit much bouncing around in his pocket. As the HDS light has a rotating bezel to adjust the light throw, I created two scalloped cutouts at the top of the case for easy light extraction and protection from an inadvertent “on” based on the customers request. The leather is 3-4 oz. vegetable tanned leather for better molding...

iPhone 6 Griffin Survivor Leather Pancake Case

iPhone 6 Griffin Survivor Leather Pancake Case

What we have here is a Leather Pancake case constructed to hold an iPhone 6 enclosed in a Griffin Technologies Survivor. You may notice that with many/most cellphone cases coming out today they all have clips of some kind that add an additional 1/2″ to the case thickness once you place it on your belt. The nice thing about pancake cases is that due to the construction they lay very flat against your side. This particular case has been made for an attorney in Manhattan that wished the case to be very simple yet rugged. It is constructed out of 3-4 oz. vegetable tanned leather and is lined with a grey sueded pigskin. It is dyed black with Fiebings Professional Oil...

Leather Belt Bag

Leather Belt Bag

This leather belt bag is a clone of a “Herz” belt bag made in Japan. The customer wanted a Herz bag style but made in the USA (God Bless him). I took the basic design and added additional closure size options. The bag is made from medium weight, medium brown oil tanned leather. The fittings are all brass and the closures are a small Sam Brown Stud. The bag itself is approximately 5″ wide by 6″5″ tall by 1.5″ thick when empty. It contains two pockets which are stitched and riveted together for strength. The belt loops are secured to the bag with two 1″ brass rings and can be unfastened for easy attachment to your belt. The...

High End Pocket Clips back in stock

Once upon a time there was a famous knife company that made high end gentleman’s pocket knives (This company’s initials are W&H). 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.
