Each rifle sling is hand crafted using 100% genuine Herman Oak Vegetable tanned leather. The hides are handpicked and purchased from Weaver leather in Hope Ohio. Unfortunately I can’t find anyone here in Canada that do the vegetable tanning which is required for hand tool leather. Other companies here in the city get their hides shipped into Canada (ex. Tandy Leather). So we have it transported to us, K K Custom Leather, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where the process begins.
The hides are cut into 3 inch strips. Through the use of a jig and a press, each sling is cut to the exact size ready to begin the tooling process. Edges of the sling are rounded off and typically a camouflage is added to the outside edge of the sling. The customer has a choice of a graphic design (usually an animal head). My motto is if I can trace it I can usually tool it! The customer then has a choice of letter styles to choose from. Taking into account the colors of the background and the round circle around the choice of lettering. Sometimes the smaller fonts are required if the name on the sling is long in length. The choice of graphic design is then tooled onto the sling. Next the choice of letter style is used to tool the desired name onto the sling. A circular cameo shape is then tooled around the lettering with a texture applied. The sling is then stained in the desired colors and resolene is added to the sling to seal, protect and add a shine. Once dry an antique finish is added to the sling if required. Additional coats of resolene are added to seal in the finish. 10 Holes are punched into the sling to accommodate the ¼” Chicago screws. Two ½” wide keepers are hand tooled and sewn together with durable waxed chord. A thumb holder is added as an additional option.
The cost of the finished rifle sling is between $125 CAD – $165 plus applicable taxes (approximately $93 USD). US rates may fluctuate from day to day with the Canadian dollar.
