* GUN BELTS * HOLSTERS
* KNIFE SHEATHS
From out of the West and into the 21st century, fine leather, fully
lined gun belts handmade by Jim Stone are worn with pride. There is
something compelling about the quality, feel, smell and the gentle
sounds of leather. Whether it is a well-worn saddle, chaps, a pair of
boots, or a fine gun belt, it feels like an old friend as soon as you
put it on.
Now that the West is not so wild, you can lasso that old western image
with a gun belt that is
wide and strong enough to hold up to the weight of a pistol just like
the cowboys did in the old days. Jim handcrafts authentic designed belts
and holsters from the 1800’s as well as modern designs. Jim also makes
quick draw and shoulder holsters for the marksmen. Jim’s holsters and
gun belts are classic, with clean finishing to show the quality of the
finest leather that he personally hand picks.
Jim’s gun belts and holsters only get better over time, conforming
gently to the contours of your
body each time they are
worn. Wild horses couldn’t drag you away from your chance to pack iron
on your hip like the gunmen of the old west. Let Jim custom make a
cartridge belt, holster, and matching knife sheath just for you from the
same fine leather, and you can wear them with pride. A matched set would
be an impressive combination.
Jim makes a variety of leather items, many of which are on display at
Stone’s Mercantile. Jim will make a sheath to fit your knife. All the
custom knife sheaths are made from 9 oz. prime tooling leather that can
have an oil finish or dyed black.
Jim’s handmade knife
sheaths enclose the blade of the knife in a leather pocket with no metal
rivets to mar the knife’s fine edge. The sheath can be hand stitched,
machine stitched, or hand laced around the edge. The stitching is buried
in the leather so the blade of the knife cannot cut the threads. Some
sheaths have handy large button snaps to secure the protective flaps.
Generous leather loops fit over your belt for comfort and easy access to
your companion knife.
Single action shooters will appreciate Jim’s classic “gunfighter” era
holsters used in modern day cowboy action shooting events. Stone’s
Mercantile also offers period western hats, chaps, and replica model
firearms, badges, tomahawks, and various other items circa 1800.
