My presentation of my custom “Dobe Searchers” Gun Rig to Actor Harry Carey, Jr. on November 5, 2005.

At last, a source for the Finest “BENCH MADE” one at a time, Western and Contemporary Holsters, Gun Belts, Knife Sheaths, Western Dress Belts, and complementary accessories for the discriminating Collector and Shooter.

Personally trained for over 10 years by the world renowned “Master of Gunleather” JOHN BIANCHI, founder of Bianchi International and more recently sole proprietor of Frontier Gunleather in Rancho Mirage, California. My skills are still being “Grown and Honed” under his direct tutelage. In recognition of my mastery of these skills, John Bianchi recently presented me my Master Leatherman certificate at “End of Trail” 2005.

You can be assured that each custom order you place will be personally and individually crafted at my work bench utilizing the highest quality vegetable tanned Herman Oak leather and paired with the best materials, accoutrements, and wide assortment of OPTIONAL sterling silver adornments. The result will be a product that will stand the test of time, allowing you to proudly wear as a shooter (or) compliment the display of your fine collectable.

“James ‘Travis’ Luz, who through over 10 years of dedicated work, has honed and continues to further develop his mastery and skills under my personal instruction and supervision. I was pleased to recognize his achievements as part of the 2005 “End of Trail” celebrations by my “personal” presentation of his certificate as ‘Master Leather Crafter’. Innovative and meticulous, you will undoubtedly end up with a custom product that you will be proud to wear and display. Without question, Travis has truly become one of the finest Leather Craftsman in the business today.”
