Seems like people will gladly pay a few extra bucks for a quality handmade product, with real leather. Keep up the good work.

Yes, that is true... My gun leather and saddle and tack products have always been top of the line custom work and I do charge accordingly
I did have to raise my prices as my leather cost is going up quite a bit this week And at the old prices I really wasn't covering labor.
BUT ...where they are now is where they will stay for quite a long time.

Also ...I forgot, For those of you who asked about a smooth lining I did the calulations ... A lining of GOOD light Kip skin (if your squeemish don't ask what a "Kip Skin" is ) ... Will add $18. to the cost of a case, I know that seems like a lot of $$$ but it's expensive leather, And to use 4oz claf skin would make the case way too thick and heavy.

IMHO this would be worth the money for piece of mind that I won't damage a foot when I'm in a hurry and rush to put my cigars in the case.

Remember you will have a one of a kind, hand crafted treasure made by one of our own that will last a lifetime.

Quick question, are these hand sewn?

You have some really nice work on your site, and as a fellow leather crafter I know the amount of work that goes into making these. $60 for these is a steal!!
