Beautiful, Mike.  Your "new technique for the antique effect" is obviously a great success.  Outstanding.

Beautiful rig Mike, I might have one of those in my future. If you don't mind me asking, what's your turn a round once the customer has commissioned the work?

Depends on how much work I have backed up.  Usually 4 to 6 weeks but it's been a little longer lately.

Very nice holster rig . . . .
Beware the man with one gun,.... he probably knows  how to use it.

Dear Mike,
            I cannot recall you ever posting any pictures of your   work, that I would not be proud to wear!  I think that iffen you turned out something that you weren't happy with, you'd trash it on the spot, and re-make it!  And I make some pretty fair rigs myself!!!!
I don't have the artistic bent youhave, I choose not to ruin a good servicable holster by my clumsy attempts to carve n it!  I STAMP my rigs.  They still look middling Fair, and are as authentic for the Period as I know how!  You are not only a Good Leathersmith, you're an artist too!  Which is somethng I will NEVER be!  As they saym "Down Under,"  "Good on yer, Mate!

                                                                                              Gunslinger9378.
Never make the mistake of thinking I will not shoot..........
Because it may be your very last mistake!
