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!...

Leather Wrist Brace

Leather Wrist Brace

This Leather Wrist Brace was made for a customer that pretty much beats his pharmaceutical braces to death. As I understand it he goes through one of the fabric braces monthly. Whether just beating it up or “setting it on fire” as he says while welding his custom drag cars, they just don’t last nor support his damaged wrist properly. Apparently other leathersmiths he has contacted to create this stated “it can’t be done”. We’ll, yes it can…see? “Bruzer”, as he is called. contacted me a while back with this request and was kind enough to mail me an old brace that I could use both as a pattern and for internal...

Automobile Document Pouch

Automobile Document Pouch

The Automobile Document Pouch is a variation on the Document Envelope. My client owns a 2011 Z06 Corvette which has a red exterior with a black interior (He used to own a Mark IV VW R32, my baby). He wished to carry all Vette manuals and such in a more customized manner vs. the binder that came with the Vette. Due to the many manuals and such that are provided with the car we needed to increase the width of the pouch from the standard envelope width of .75″ up to 2″. Due to this is was necessary to use a gusseted side panel vs. the standard stitched sides in order to keep the pouch width accommodating for the glove box. The pouch is made with 3-4oz....

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...
