Handmade Leather Tanker Holster

Handmade Leather Tanker Holster


This listing was previously only for the full size 1911, but is now available for an assortment of guns.

It is similar in style to the tanker holsters used in WWII, with a few "improvements" such as Chicago screw retention on the back strap instead of leather ties, and steel O ring to allow the straps to pivot comfortably.

The belt loop and retention strap are closed via Snaps as a standard, but I can substitute Sam Browne studs if you want.

The Buckles and rings are steel as a standard, but can be done in several other colors if desired. Message me for options.

For right now the options available are all we have in-shop for molding holsters, if you do not see your gun in the list, feel free to message me and I will look into making your model available.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you have any items in Stock, ready to ship?

    We now have a section of in stock items! Everything in this section is available, and will ship within 1-2 business days.

    Why so expensive?

    Our items are all made by hand. We do not mass produce anything, and every item has been designed, tested, and created by us. A lot of time and effort has gone into every item we offer, and we do our best to make sure that everything that leaves our shop lives up to our standards and hopefully yours.

    Can you make a sheath for a knife other than the ones offered here?

    We only offer a few different sheath options, but we operate out of a large brick & mortar cutlery store, so there's a chance we have the knife you're looking for. Contact us to set up a custom order.

    Do your holsters meet IDPA regulations?

    All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.

    Are your leather sheaths lined with Kydex?

    To put in bluntly, if your leather sheath does what it's supposed to do, you shouldn't need to put a different sheath inside of it. Our leather sheaths function very well being made out of leather, and our kydex sheaths work very well without a leather lining.

    Does the knife come with the sheath?

    No. Each item is for the sheath/scabbard/holster itself, no knives, swords, or guns are included with any purchase.

    Extremely well made product. Just as described. I highly recommend this maker.

    Exactly what I needed. Superb craftsmanship...I'll be ordering again soon.

    Really well made. Fast delivery. I would buy from this vendor again, no question.

    The holster I bought was beautiful, gave it to an uncle for Christmas and he loved it. Seller helped me by getting the item out quickly so it arrived on time for gift giving too :)
