How the west was won. Hard road warriors who fought deadly duels for a living. Hired mercenaries, desparados, gamblers, loners. This case is tooled like a fine holster. Made with 10 ounce vegetable tanned leather and deeply engraved this case isn't for people who like things lightweight. The pictures don't do this case justice.
The carving has to be felt to be appreciated. Using leather this thick it's more of a sculpture than a tooled piece. The texture is unbelievable. The sewing machine we used to sew it weighs more than my pool table. The needle was ultra scary. You can rope a cow with the thread...... ok well that's exagerating but you get the point.
The case is a 2x4 for 2 butts and 4 shafts. It is a fully lined tube case with all the protective features that come with the tube cases I build. Moisture resistant super soft liner that won't wear out, foam rubber to protect against impact, industrial strength rivets at the stress points, a heavy duty closure, and spring loaded cavities. The leather is treated to resist soiling and liquids. It is signed "John Barton 12-2007 1 of 1"
