Had a referral customer want something a bit different to tote his Model 36 around the shop he works at. It will be supported by a plain double stitched cow hide belt before shipping.

Haven't made the time to mess with exotics much but I REALLY like looking at and working with this shark! I am working my overlay skills up for a 1911 rig being done for a fellow leather worker that approached me late last summer for a carry rig.

A big bonus to this texture besides the cool factor is how it will wear over time. Should stay looking nicer for a lot longer!

I think it's in Jackson, he'll just have to be the Belle of the ball  :thumbup:

Nice looking rig, Rob. Curious; how does the shark compare to cow hide as far as working with it on the bench?
Thank you Chad! The shark is still veg tan cow lined, but really impressed me. It has a firmer temper than other exotics I've played with that makes it basically as easy as cow. Cost is substantially more, though. I need a hide of this in brown.
