The Leather Shop / Re: Wickett & Craig vs. Herman Oak
« Last post by The original bad bob on Today at 11:56:38 AM »
Grey hawk, I just got a side of Wickett &Craig for the first time, it cost me $225.. I have no special source or discount.. I got it from Montana leather.

My first impression of it after just cutting a scabbard holster out of it this AM is it is very tough leather.. the piece I got is tougher Leather than any Herman Oak I ever used.. what I mean by this is it’s very hard to cut ... Gummy is another word to describe how it cuts.

It tools and carves the same to slightly better than HO IMO.

The Flesh side of the W&C has patchy areas of large size fuzz , but it is just superficial ,still hard and doesn’t deter from the quality

The tanning process must be different because it just feels different than HO.. it’s not something I can describe in words very well.. it soaks up water like a sponge and it just feels different

Seen two magazine detonations in my time, both .38 factory RNs. The Lee mold is an excellent rifle bullet.

Thoroughly soak the loops in lukewarm water, let excess water run off, then insert cartridges and let the belt air dry.
