Condos Custom Leather
Q: What kind of leather do you use?
A: I use premium grade USA-tanned, drum dyed, skirting leather from Wickett & Craig.
This leather is used for all my sheaths, holsters and guitar straps.
Q: What thickness leather do you use?
A: Both my sheaths and guitar straps are typically 7-8oz leather, with a 2-3oz lining.
Leather lined holsters are 8oz front and back, and mag pouches are 6-7oz unlined. Suede holsters are 5-6oz leather backed with 3oz suede.
(One ounce equals 1/64")
Q: Are all your sheaths fully lined?
A: The bushcraft, stacked and pouch style sheaths are fully lined, including the inside of the belt loop. The fitted sheaths have a lined backside (so the belt loop is lined), however the front contour-fitted section is not lined so it can be accurately wet-molded to the knife.
Q: What material do you use for lining?
A: For the bushcraft, stacked sheaths and guitar straps, the lining is 2-3oz leather, the same leather as used for the outside of the sheath. On pouch style sheaths, I use 2-3oz Deerskin for the lining.
Q: How do you stitch your product?
A: My stacked and pouch sheaths are normally machine-sewn. Horizontal fitted sheaths typically use a combination of machine and hand stitching, while the vertical fitted sheaths are 100% hand sewn. Holsters are machine-stitched.
Q: What style of sheaths do you make?
A: I make horizontal carry bushcraft sheaths, horizontal carry stacked sheaths that utilize a retention strap, vertical and horizontal carry pouch and fitted sheaths.
Q: I want a snap instead of the Sam Browne button to retain my strap on the stacked sheath, is that possible?
A: Of course!
Q: What form of payment do you accept?
A: Money orders, cashiers checks and Paypal. Personal checks accepted as well, but work will not start till check clears.
Q: Do I need to send you my knife to use as a template?
A: If it is a custom knife, yes. If it is a production knife I may have one already (see Knife Sheath page). Sheath/knives are always returned signature-required and fully insured. I also recommend they be sent to me the same (US Postal Service preferred) to prevent any potential delivery issues.
Q: I heard you will be making custom holsters soon. Is that true?
A: Yes!! I am now making Pancake style holsters, with IWB soon to come.
