One man – One holster at a time.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on April 1st, 2007

Tucker is known for the quality of his work and his insistance on the best materials, but he’s equally known for his decorative stamping. Border stamping is a favorite of many customers and most have never seen it done. Once you see handwork involved you’ll appreciate your holster even more.

I made a video of Tucker applying an Egyptian Key border stamp to what will become a paddle holster for a Glock 30. The stamp is about a half-inch in size and takes repeated mallet taps and perfect alignment. Each tap must be equal in force or the depth of the stamp will vary and produce a ragged result.

Those of you who are waiting for your leather please appreciate that one man is making every order hiimself. If you could watch Tucker for an entire day, you’d be amazed how much work he actually produces while maintaining consistent quality.

I think you’ll find this video of Tucker in action very interesting.

    I really enjoyed watching the master at work. I’ve shown these to several others who have also enjoyed them.

    Who knew Tucker was such a chatter box! HaHaHaHa! =D

  3. Frank Hart Says:

    I admit I was pretty disappointed when my wait time went from 7 weeks to 12 weeks but these videos your making (while also very interesting) are putting custom holster making in a whole new perspective for me. Wow! I have a whole new appreciation for the work involved in creating these holsters.

    It’s cool to see the amount of effort put into the making of these things! Thank you for the video footage.
