Made with honor.

Recommended Posts

My godson has grown into a fine young man who has chosen an honorable profession.  When he asked me to make a holster for him, I gladly accepted the job!

 

I hope you like it.

Well done Mike! 

Good on your godson for choosing to serve.  My uncle was a firefighter in his younger days.  I loved and respected him even more when I found out.

That turned out fantastic!  such intense colors.  Is there stitching underneath that to hold the holster shape over time?

@immiketoo - OK so I have tried to "fade" black to blue and an orange to black without much success- still learning... Love the bordering around the piece- do you do the red first then wash the black onto the edges? I am thinking multiple light coats of the black- but hoping you can shed some light on it.

Usually I leave the darkest color until last, however, with red and black, I do the black first otherwise it rubs off.  I start with the lightest part of the fade and work toward the edge which is darkest.  That way, any overspray doesn’t go onto the body of the piece.

Knowing you, I wouldn't guess. :)  That's why I asked.  Figured you might have some nifty secret technique up your sleeve better than the obvious 3 layered setup I was guessing at!

Very nice indeed. May he never have to draw from it!... unless at a range of course. And I am an H&K fan even when they are blue.
