Trim Options


If you would like to give your holster a nice personal touch, there are several options available. These are the trim options that I currently have in-stock.

Some of these materials are only available in small amounts, so those options may not work for every holster model.

For pricing information, please refer to the specific holster model -- different holsters use different amounts of material, so for that reason, pricing is dependent upon the specific model.

If you are interested in any of these options, or if you have any questions, please contact me.

Terms of use: Firearms are inherently dangerous tools, and the end user assumes all risks and responsibilities that go hand-in-hand with carrying a firearm. It is your responsibility to get trained in the safe and proper use of your firearm. Firearms should always be treated as if they were loaded.

Leather is an organic substance, and is therefore somewhat unpredictable. After all, cows are unique creatures too. Part of what makes leather so beautiful is its random grain, and although I try to avoid any scars or marks, sometimes those marks don't really show through until after the piece is shaped and molded. I use the highest-grade leather available, so marks are less common, but still may crop up from time to time.
