Uncle Mikes I was using "). Lewiston Idaho  

David: Just picked the belt up and it's great and fit's nicely. Again thank you for the quick service and a job

well done. Again Thanks !!!!!  

Bill: That over the shoulder belt loop is unique. Two nieghbors were eyeballing it. With cartridges, I expect some

"where did you get that" questions.:) Montana  

James: Received the gun belt and I really like your work on the whole project. Already got many compliments.

Everyone at the barbershop loved it! Will certainly pass your card along and stay in touch. Respectfully,

jimb, Spokane Wa.

LJ: I absolutely LOVE the holster you made for my H&K mp7 - the attention to detail and the FIT was incredible!

I am also very pleased with the belts I recieved before - Ive been wearing them daily for a few years now, with no

signs of failure or even heavy wear! Ive never had a belt last this long before! I get compliments all the time on

the holster - Thanks so much! Lewiston Idaho  

Debbie D: The belt came yesterday and it is PERFECT! I couldn’t believe how fast and efficient you were in

getting it done!!! I’m glad you put the ad in the Nickel’s Worth. I will mail it off to our Grandson—I have no

doubt—he’ll be pleased! Thanks again. Debbie, Bonnersferry Id.

Mel Potter: Not too long ago, I special ordered a belt from Cheryl at Barbedwire. Talking to Cheryl was an

absolute pleasure and I was very reassured that they would have no problem making the belt I needed. She

was very personable and professional. After ordering my belt, they wasted no time in getting it made to order,

leaving nothing out. I received my belt very quickly, and have been wearing it for over a week now. I am

extremely pleased with it!! Barbedwire leather is the epitome of handcrafted workmanship as far as I am concerned.

Their attention to detail, pride of workmanship, quality and professionalism are exactly the reasons I like to find

true trades people to create things like this over mass manufactured items ANY day of the week! Thank you

Cheryl and Barbedwire leather for making me a belt that will last for years! Sincerely, Mel Potter Brandon, FL.

John Dean: We received the holster, belt and cartridge holder today. Everything looks great and it is very

well made. We couldn't be happier with it. Can't wait to use it! Thank you again.

John and Anja Matt Unger: I just received my order for the 1911 holster you sent me yesterday. It looks great!

I am very happy with your product and your customer service. I will be referring my friends and family.

Thanks again, and I will be in contact with you for future purchases...

Vincent: After dealing with some of the "others" and working with Barbedwire Leather i can say the attention

to detail and custom orders are in a category of its own. The quality of work is great and with the turn around

time just a few days not a few weeks or months this is the place to have any custom work done. I was so

pleased with the quality products, price, and quickness i already made a second order. The only thing that

compares to the work and quality of these products is the customer service you will get!

Barry: I received my #25 Belt Holster a couple months ago and have broken it in and I am very satidfied with it

The concept is so SIMPLE I think many people over look this type of concealment. I actually had a question

in my mind if this arrangement would hold the pistol in place while moving around or squatting, etc. It does.

It is far more comfortable than a IWB holster (which I have) and a lot faster to draw from that an ankle holster

or pocket holster which I also have. Nice quality, very good looking, a bit pricey, but then it works and I have

cheaper holsters that don’t, so you get what you pay for. Service was very friendly and fast. Support a small

business that delivers a fine product! JBS.

David Caldwell: THANK YOU!  This western holster you made for my 500 Smith & Wesson is perfect, right

down to the cartridge loops. Waist size:  Perfect! Carry height:  Perfect! Leather quality:  Perfect! Workmanship:

 Perfect! Amazing, especially when you consider that you only had a telephone call to work from.  It was also

timely:  I had the holster in my hands in just a couple of weeks.  My shooting friends are going to ask about

this rig.  I think I'll photocopy your business card in advance...-David Caldwell Sandpoint, ID    

Mike Lodahl: Really GREAT service,wonderful holster,fit like a glove. I will be back. Mike Lodahl, Elk WA. 

John Angelo:Thanks for making this holster for me.  Wonderful job! I hate carrying concealed.  So having
this small a rig will at least make it a bit easier to carry when I do bank deposits and work late at the office.
Thanks Again. John Angelo 

Casey Lynch: I received the sheath you made for my little knife.  Thanks for a good product at a great price

and at such fast turnaround!  Laclede, ID

Andrew Shick: Got it today. It's great! Exactly what I expected. Thanks very much. Grain Valley Mo.

Ken Shipman:  Wow, That was a perfect in every way job you did for me making a leather case for my

Streamlight  4AA flash light I depend my life in everyday, Thank you! I am proud to carry both these world

class products on my belt where ever I go. Your loyal customer,  Superior, MT

Tom Shea:  I just wanted to send a note of thanks and praise for getting my belt done so soon and with the

extra stitching.  You were so helpful at the show taking the extra time to help me when I was struggling to

make a decision on which one to purchase.  Now receiving my belt earlier than you said, you went the extra

mile and stitched in an extra row, I can't thank you enough. After opening the package I looked at the belt

right away and saw the extra row of stitching and thought I didn't order that, then I went to your note and

read what you wrote and was so surprised, yes I love having the extra row. The quality of the belt is just

superior and your workmanship is fantastic.  I will be ordering another one in brown the first of February

and will be paying for the extra row of stitching this time.  It has been nice to meet you and know of such

a quality craftswoman and artist living close by in the Pacific Northwest, trust me I'll be singing your praise

s to others for sure. Good health and good day to you and your family. Spokane Wa.

Dave Kristensen: Barbed Wire Leather - 5 STARS!
I received my custom gun belt and holster today and was absolutely thrilled! I had to call right away and
leave a voice mail with BW Leather and my contact, the very kind and helpful Miss Cheryl.
I can go on and on, but I will try to keep this short and condensed.
I am the type of person that if I can't have the best, I will do without.
BW Leather crafted a VERY handsome, yet rugged gun belt and holster that I will treasure, and it will be
passed on to my son some day.
Old world craftsmanship and value...? Amazing! I will be a life long customer -- I HIGHLY recommend
Barbed Wire Leather!  North Idaho

Tom Sovine:  I have purchased several belts from Cheryl.  She produces a high quality product and her
shipping is fast.  Best of all is that the belts are made so one can change buckles.  And it’s made in the
USA. Milton WV

LJ: I wanted to thank you for the amazing camera strap you conspired with Traci to build! its amazing!
I LOVE IT! I'm using the crap out of it My favorite leather too! Lewiston Id.

Barry Samson: I always seem to like something, shall we say different?  I still LOVE the #25 belt (holster?)
 as it really tucks the Ruger in tight and does an excellent job of hiding AND holding it. Super simple great
holster. Of course the cowboy in me enjoys the custom job you made for my .357 that swaps out with my
single six Ruger on a belt I already had.
 And then today my first "crossdraw" type holster arrived. There is not a holster made that is more
comfortable while driving. Period. No fighting with seat belts, etc. And still very very comfortable standing,
etc. As with the other holsters of BW Leather, fit, finish and quality are the best I have found and worth
every penny. Great value. Thank you for making custom holsters to my liking. You are first on my list for any
future needs. Chattaroy Wa.

Dave M:  Just  received the cross body holster I ordered from Barbed Wire Leather and it is fantastic! The
quality of the leather and craftsmanship is outstanding.The fit and cant of the holster are spot on. You can
tell it was made with the customers expectations in mind. All of my future leather needs will be ordered from
Barbed Wire.Auburn Wa.

Joe Domon: It's  awesome!!
I want to tell anyone who is looking to have some leather work done; your shop is excellent.   The product was
exactly what was expected and designed.   It fits perfect and the added touch of the pen holders is great.  I
waited 5 weeks for someone else to tell me he could not make this holster.  In less than a week your shop made
it and delivered the same week.  The price was more than reasonable!!  One more thing, after trying the two
pistol it was designed for I tried my wife's Taurus Titanium 45 revolver all fit like a glove.   That was just an
added bonus.  I will definitely recommend Barb Wire Leather to my friends and use it again. Spokane Wa.

Dave K: Hereford, Arizona. I just received my new gun belt today. I needed to replace my first
BW gun belt because I gained a few pounds, hahaha. Cheryl said may be the leather shrunk (she was kidding).
Again, AMAZING quality, craftsmanship, nice price, and very fast turn around time.
I highly recommend BW Leather! Thank you Cheryl!
Tom C:  Hi Cheryl, just received my custom Ruger holster! Love it, love it, love it! Fast service and amazing quality.

You rock! Thanks again...Medical Lake Wa.

J.R: "I just received my holster for my Smith & Wesson Shield 9mm from Barbed Wire Leather and I couldn't

be happier.  I was having a difficult time deciding which holster would offer me just the right amount of

comfort, concealability, and weapon retention, and Cheryl from BWL worked with me over a period e-mails

to assess my needs and point me in the correct direction - a #51 Small Concealment Holster.  When the

holster arrived I couldn't help but admire not only the holster's classic look, but also the obvious

craftsmanship and care that went into its construction.  The holster holds the pistol superbly at just the

right cant with the minimum amount of leather necessary for me to carry it in a comfortable and confident

manner wearing only a t-shirt, gun belt, and cargo shorts.  Thank you again BWL for this fantastic piece

of gear!  I can't recommend these fine folks to you enough." Ga.
