  1. Two Ruger Single Six Holsters

    Gary, I have made and sold several hundred holsters and used Tan-Kote on all of them and never had a complaint. Maybe no one wore where they would get soaked. I have also used it on my own holsters and have never had a problem, but my holsters have usually been under my hunting coat in bad weather. It would be interesting to see how your experiment works out.

    Keith, I didn't dilute the dye at all. I know that it is hard to get the right color if you are matching dyes but this dye was full strength. It makes a big difference on the quality of leather leather. Take leather towards the belly area and you will get a darker color and more blotchy because of the more open pores of the leather. I think the cheaper leather also does that. I always use Hermon Oak leather, and I think it dyes much better than other leather.

    Thanks for all the nice comments everyone.
  4. Here are two new holsters I just finished up. I used Fiebings Light Brown and Dark Brown on them. I also antiqued them with Fiebings Black Antique finish. They have a total of three coats of Tan-Kote on them. Hope you like them and thanks for looking.

    Hi Matt, thanks. I do a ton of lacing, mostly holsters. Here is where you can buy the instructions: https://www.tandyleather.com/en/product/how-to-lace-book

    The strap is to hold the loop in the back for the belt to go through. I'll post a picture of the back so you can see what I mean. I like this design because you can place or remove the holster from your belt without unfastening your belt. Thanks for all the great replies, everyone.
  9. Here is a holster I finished up in my shop.

    That is very beautifully done! Your magnet closure interests me and also I'd like to know how the belt loop is attached.
