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...

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...

Pipe Bag Orikawa

Pipe Bag Orikawa

Pipe Bag Orikawa you say! Well, taking the definition of “Origami” (In Japanese, “ori” means “folding” and “gami” means “paper” so it stands to reason that a folding pipe bag made of leather would be “ori” for folding and “kawa” meaning leather… Orikawa). I should state right up front that if I’ve got this wrong I would appreciate being corrected by anyone speaking/reading/writing Japanese. I was contacted a while back by Chris Lee, owner of iBriar.com with an idea he has been considering for a high-end pipe bag that could be configured in various ways. As normal with custom...

iPad with Keyboard Play Through Case (Dragon Smoke)

iPad with Keyboard Play Through Case (Dragon Smoke)

This iPad with keyboard play through case is another item in the “Dragon Smoke” light weight line from Dragonthorn Leatherworks. The customer that is using this baby specifically wanted a rustic/rugged, light weight, no frills case to carry both his iPad and his Logitech Ultra-Light Keyboard. What makes this case a bit different is that it is indeed “light weight”. So many iPad and Tablet cases on the market made to carry both the tablet and keyboard are so over designed that they are bulky as well as heavy. Electronics are heavy enough all by themselves so you really don’t need additional leather or layers that are not necessary. This case...

Leather Tablet Sleeve (Dragon Smoke)

Leather Tablet Sleeve (Dragon Smoke)

Leather Tablet Sleeve for my Dell venue 8 Pro. This one is pretty rustic and minimal. The Venue 8 Pro is a great little tablet running Windows 8.1 and is very handy. I needed something to give it a bit more protection so I decided to create this sleeve. I consider this leather tablet sleeve as another product in the “Dragon Smoke” line. Full custom leather, no frills, looks good, great protection and I do get many comments when pulling it out in the board room (alas, I do have a “real” job). This leather tablet sleeve is made of 3-4oz. vegetable tanned leather and is dyed a rich Cognac red/brown. The thread is a natural nylon ivory for contrast....

Custom Watchbands

Custom Watchbands

Custom Watchbands, you betcha. I’ve always enjoyed watches. I have a fairly rare Omega and various Seiko’s and other “not so rare” pieces. The Omega that I brought back with me from the UK years ago recently died so I bought a very functional new Seiko Divers Watch to use while the Omegas in the shop. The Seiko came with a rubber divers band and I wanted to try my hand at making a watch strap. This strap is made of Frogskin with a brown Water Buffalo lining… get it… frog, water buffalo, divers watch? Never mind… The clasp for this piece is from RHD and is a stainless double-fold deployant style. The thread used is a nylon orange...
