Conceal This is a small one man shop that takes personal pride in every item that leaves my workbench. I got into making holster's for one reason only, I could not find a handmade leather holster that had certain features I was wanting, so I figured I would make one myself. My first few attempts were usable but not finished to the level of detail and perfection I was wanting. As I continued to work and improve my skill, my designs and finished holsters got better and better. I soon learned to start with the best leather and material I could find and I searched out knowledge from other makers. Handmade leather work is somewhat of a dying art and finding makers that will share some of their trade secrets is not easy. My work and designs have been influenced by a few makers I think are at the top of their craft. Holster makers like Thad Rybka, Matt Del Fatti, Wright Leatherworks, and John Losey of Concealment Holster Solutions are in my option some highly skilled and some of best in the business. John Losey has been very helpful to me with perfecting my edges and sharing tips that made a big difference in the finished product I produce today. As my holsters continued to improve and people saw my level of attention to detail and design, more and more people asked me to create holsters for them. From that point I decided to focus on a limited number of firearm models and holster designs to try and keep my lead time manageable. Please see the home page for a current list.
There is a huge difference between a holster that is mass produced and will fit more than one model and a custom handmade holster design for one particular firearm only. The time and attention to detail it takes to make a really high quality holster is something that most larger companies will not designate for any one holster. I do not plan to be a major holster producer and create thousands of holsters a year. I work on one holster at a time and stay with it until it meets a standard that I would be proud to carry. Let me know when I can make one you will treasure.
