the AMERICAN Leather Holster

The Claw is mainly for Appendix carry (AIWB), if you mainly carry appendix and want maximum concealment you may want a holster that has the claw on it. The Claw helps conceal the pistol by applying pressure to the inside of the belt and rotating the grip of the pistol towards your body for maximum conceal-ability. We've designed this holster for and to work around the claw. If you throw a claw on a holster not made for it, it either won't line up with the belt or the retention will be off.  If you remove the claw, the holster will look unfinished.

We start with an Ultra Premium Cut Leather; as you may or may not know certain parts of the skin are better than others... (not to say that we ever use any substandard leather) but the AMERICAN IWB  holster will be cut from the sweet spot of the Grade A Steer Hide. The grain is tightest, most consistent and should ensure the longest possible lifespan of your holster.

The wooden CLAW is 8 layers of 1/42" walnut veneer and the overall thickness is about .2025". We use Shellac™ all natural sealant and it makes the wood as water proof as you would expect leather to be. Paraffin wax and silicone lubricant added to the inside to make your pistol glide in and out easily and also to further protect the finish of your pistol. An All American Product. 

WHY A WOODEN CLAW? When considering materials for the claw, the options were plastic, carbon fiber, metal and wood. Plastic was not an option and carbon fiber would have been too expensive and messy, and we were going to explore metal if the wood didn't work out. We never got to the metal since the wooden claw worked just fine, and I can't imagine that the metal would look as good as the wood.
