Marshall:  no, the leather doesn't loosen enough to drop or lose caps even after 40 years of use.  My first and favourite capper was made from an old piece of saddle skirting, and sewn up with dental floss, and it still holds caps perfectly.

Had someone want me to make them a holster for their favorite gun. He wanted the holster in a basketweave design with a strap and in Saddle Tan color. I decided to fully suede line the holster also.

That's a nice looking holster, Rube. BW is a nice look. Well done, pard.

Thank you sir. I was pleased with the way it turned out and the way it fit the gun. Only my second time using a suede liner.

Another one I just finished up for a 1911. This one is in black with a brown suede liner.

Not exactly cowboy action but thought I would share. Hope no one minds.

Decided to make a Texas Ranger inspired Threepersons Holster.

That's a beautiful holster. I like  the BW stamp you used on it. Thanks for sharing.

We do have a thread for non-cowboy stuff so I'll move this there.

Another 1911 Threepersons that I just finished up.

I def. need more practice in the carving dept. I recently picked up a new Duane Watts swivel knife. Until now the only one I had was a cheap craft store knife that was not good at all. That said, this one seems really well made but will def. take some getting used to.

Looks good, Rube. You're definitely busy with these holsters. Thumbs-up to that!

Congrats on getting a good swivel knife. Nothing makes tooling easier than a high quality swivel knife. After you get used to it, you'll wonder how you ever managed with the craft store one.

When I finally bought a high quality swivel knife, I saved my cheapo to use with my detail blade. It wasn't long before I realized I needed a second good one to use for that because the cheapo felt so crappy. So I thought I'd save the cheapo for this third blade I use now and then... Then again for another blade. And again. I think I need to get rid of that cheapo, it's costing me money. LOL.

Yes, I have been quite busy. Here in south Louisiana there are many places without power still from Hurricane Ida. My office is one of them. I was lucky to not have any damage to the home and was without power for about 5 days. So, being unable to work my regular job, I have been spending my days building holsters which I have been enjoying.

As for the cheap swivel knives, I can already tell that the junk I had first......was just that. Junk.

It does take some getting used to the blade being the part that swivels instead of the barrel but I can already tell its better than the cheap one.

All the ones I've had have a set screw to tighten the blade into the body. I can't say I'd want the blade to swivel freely by itself. I like having control of the blade angle when I use it.

When I watched his videos on YouTube they look easy to use so since I am not so used to one way or another I thought I’d try it out.

Search Duane Watts swivel knife videos on YouTube if you want to see them in action.

Thanks. I'll take a look. Yes, since you aren't used to either way, it may be a fine way to do it. I can see benefits to that type of swivel knife. After some 50 years of doing it the other way, though, I doubt it would be beneficial for me to change now.
