    Check out greyghostsgraphics online its where I had my custom leather stamps made . Depends on the design for cost , but a simple makers mark is fairly resonable in costs .

    Only took a couple of months but they finally arrived, curve cutting tools. The metal in the curve is, as you see, utterly unfinished, looks straight out of the forge, the handles are less than fully straight and the size markings are illegible but for the $10, assuming they work ok, not too much to complain about.

    I can also finally get a move on with a few projects I've had on hold. Especially my leather notebook pocket that I've been waiting to do. Also planning a mini bic sheath. Also thinking of an altoid tin sheath (looks much nicer than having to use elastic bands, etc to keep them closed?). I'm going to make a belt sheath from my LM Charge AL based on my current design and well, I'm not going to be bored. :D

    I figured I would try my hand at tooling leather. My tool set arrived on Thursday and today I ended up with this cellphone holster. What do you guys think?

    Not a first attempt for the stamp on the back, but yes a first attempt for the tooling on the front. I found it to be very similar to working metal just with less force applied.

    Notebook cover as promised. Horween Derby leather. Happy with how it came out but next time I'll use wider stitching for effect. Leather still needs a bit of use to settle properly into the stitching.

    Here's the notebook cover I'm working on. I'm going to add a back cover and connect them with a piano hinge.

    It's kind of a mix of several racing biplanes from the '30s and '40s.

    So I decided to make a full leather holster for the Kahr today. This is what I came up with. Still waiting for it to fully dry before I test drive it. I designed this to be a pocket holster or an iwb.
