Stingray Wallet

Stingray Wallet

Custom Stingray Wallet you ask? Coming right up, err…. in a short bit… I have worked with a lot of tough leathers and difficult projects but I have to say finishing this wallet for a recent customer strained the both of us. The design and the manufacture of the pure cow leather bits was not difficult. Determining exactly how I was going to stitch this baby was not. Stingray skin is actually made up of a hard calcareous material that is more like armor than skin or scales. A regular knife will not easily cut it, nor are your scissors happy if you use them. I ended up using a pair of shop shears for the rough cut and my belt sander to get the edges straight....

Fountain Pen Case (Hard Shell)

Fountain Pen Case (Hard Shell)

Fountain Pen Case, hard shell and custom made. It does not get any better than this for the discerning fountain pen collector. I was contacted by a client in Toronto looking for something just a little bit different. He forwarded me a few photos of cases he likes along with this comment, ” I can’t find anything outside of Japan that isn’t junk (sort of cheap leather and all floppy). Your stuff looks fantastic and high quality”. Well, I am always up for a challenge and thought to myself, “self, let’s ramp this way up!” The ramp-up? A layered piece of custom molded kydex giving this Dragon Leatherworks pen case practical...

Pocket Watch Case

Pocket Watch Case

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...

Shop PCS

Shop PCS

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...

Leather EDC Set

Leather EDC Set

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!...
