The double edge stitching is done by hand by the Master belt maker by making one pass, turning the belt and then stitching the second row. No double needle machine here. It takes skilled hands for that fine detail work and the result is simply stunning.
Stuffed in drums with heavy tallow this leather is weather resistant and soft yet durable, and develops a patina that can't be created any other way than simply by wearing. Each belt will develop its own look depending on your individual usage and soon will be like your favorite pair of worn-in jeans.
We use the extra heavy 16 oz. and over hides called tannery runs. Tannery runs allow all the scars and bug bites to show which gives this belt its rich full grain look. It also results in no two belts being alike as the color and markings will be different from hide to hide. If you want a belt that looks like everyone else's then this is not the belt for you. These are stunning, heavy belts just like your great grandfather would have worn.
These hides also vary in weight by as much as 3 oz. from butt to shoulder so there will be some variances in thickness along the length of the belt. This is by design and gives these belts the handcrafted that is so desirable. Rated at 16 oz. these belts can have areas that go as high as 19 oz. on them. A great look and feel and the way nature intended this leather to be.
This is a superb CCW belt and the thickness supports most firearms with ease and looks great. This belt works well for either IWB or OWB carry and will support your rig with confidence which is all part of responsible concealed carry.
You would spend all year looking in big box stores for a belt like this and never even come close. Stylish and pure quality, this is a belt that will truly be with you for years to come.
