Nice idea, where needs must, brass also works well... you know... for when you actually have to do some dusting... you want your end result to be as flat as can be!

I would really appreciate it if you would post your pattern. Looks like a fun project and I have a few buddies that would like one.

Thanks!

That's a cool idea. Pepper spray would be good too like dragonfly said. I wonder if you could fill that part with shot too. And just stitch the whole thing up. For added weight. Just a thought.

The right one looks like it's probably a flashlight, but what's in the one on the left?

RE: Hardening formed leather. Two methods that work well and are easily implemented without a lot of specialized equipment:

1. As a part of the wet-forming process the item can be heated to ~120-130F for 30 minutes. What this accomplishes is allowing the collagens within the leather fibers to flow and reinforce the formed shape. The result is a piece that is significantly harder than one simply allowed to dry at room temperature, and the formed shape is better retained.

2. Perform the wet-forming using isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) instead of water. The formed piece will dry much more quickly because the alcohol evaporates faster than water. This results in a very hard finished product. NOTE: Do not apply heat during the drying of alcohol, obvious fire hazard.

To be avoided, if hardness of the finished product is the goal, is any use of oil in the finishing process. Neatsfoot oil, oil-based dyes, and other penetrating finishes will result in softening and increased flexibility.
