High End Custom Leather Products, Created by Dragonthorn
I do not normally put up pictures of every PCS I create as there are just too many and I am afraid it would overwhelm my webpage speed. However, in this case I really did want to make a more “whimsical” post about the PCS you see...
The Dragon PCS© System for every day carry is probably the most difficult and yet the most simple to explain. Difficult, as the pictures show only a few of an infinite variety of possibilities. Simple, as the design and construction is only...
As a major part of my custom work revolves around my Personal Carry System (PCS), I have added an additional PCS page to give you a better indication of the varieties of Personal Carry Systems that can be created. In addition I have added a...
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. We firmly believe in giving the customer “exactly” what they want. We 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. So, have an idea? Not sure if it’ll work or how to go about it? Only one way to find out… Let us know what you are thinking and we’ll go from there.
September 9, 2015 – With success comes challenges. As of this morning Dragonthorn Leatherworks is rated number one for “custom leatherwork” and “custom leather work” on Google. I need to start paying attention to Bing and Yahoo ratings but I’m good where we are for now (who wouldn’t be?). It’s not that we don’t have enough customers, we just need to find a way to squeeze more hours into the day. Our lead time has now increased to 15-20 weeks, wow! … never thought that would happen. In addition leather prices have gone up yet again. I am going to do my best to hold prices where they are as long as I can but cannot promise anything. You may have read somewhere on this website that I started doing custom leatherwork professionally while I was running a knife shop (shout out to the knife shop orphans!). I have to say, my work then was good, the work we put out now is a different level even if I do say so myself. I must again reiterate.. we will never cut corners on our work for the sake of getting more out or to get it out quicker. We do what we do and we do it very well indeed. We are also going to start concentrating on the smaller PCS stuff for Everyday Carry (EDC). We will by all means consider any leatherwork you may have so let us know what you are thinking and we’ll see what we can do. Well, times a wasting… back to the shop. Have a good one… DH
Not sure what to call this except “Twins”. In this PCS Twins set, the client wished to have the same (or close) PCS for his high end William Henry Knives, flashlight, lighter, pen and Swiss Army knives. One PCS will be “Office Carry” and one for “Weekend carry”. He will shift out the pen with the lighter depending upon the circumstances. In addition he wished to have a flap covering the Swiss Arny knife as he will be interchanging two different Swiss Army knives depending upon his personal preference for the day (one is thinner than the other). I also carved a “Lannister Lion” on the flap covering the Swiss Army knives. As...Read More
A Pocket Watch Case is a definite requirement for those that prefer to carry a pocket watch over a wrist watch. We were commissioned by an executive in the mid-west to create a custom leather pocket watch case with attached leather braided cord for one of his latest antique finds. Interestingly, we have recently been commissioned to make many leather items without having the actual piece that will be placed in it. We do this with exact dimensions, a lot of research and hand made hardwood molds. This watch case was no exception. As the watch is very valuable, the customer didn’t trust the transportation system to deliver this watch safely for a custom fit. (I have...Read More
The Shop PCS is a project ordered by a welding shop owner in Georgia that got really tired of buying belt pouches for the items he used daily that kept wearing out. In addition, they were just ugly. The customer needed a belt carry PCS that carried his old Leatherman, a BIC pen that he just loved and a small MagLight. In addition he required a keyclip on the bottom for, well… you know… keys. He also required a matching cellphone case for his current iPhone and one he was looking to upgrade to. We chatted a bit and a further requirement was a leather that was stupid strong. This belt carry PCS is made of horse hide and is dyed a dark walnut brown. The...Read More
Leather EDC Set, who doesn’t need EDC (Every Day Carry) pouches to carry the sundry of stuff that you need every day? I am going to do this post a bit differently than most. The set pictured was commissioned by a gentleman in Plymouth, England that operates a professional plumbing and heating company in the UK. Why no air conditioning you ask? You have to live there to understand (I did, for 3 years and it’s beautiful, but not hot). The client needed a set of pouches to carry his Wiha bit driver set, the wallet; his HDS 250 flashlight (called a torch in the UK), the taller sleeve; and his Bose bluetooth headset, the small belt pouch. Sounds like EDC to me!...Read More
