About AlsakerCustomLeather

Sales 130
On Etsy since 2013

It all started with an old worn dirty saddle.

In 2010 I knew nothing about working with leather. My wife went to a swap meet to look at used horse tack. She returned home with an old Simco saddle that was covered in dust, dirt, and cobwebs. The leather was dry and the stitching was torn out in several places. She placed the poor dilapidated saddle on a saddle rack in the middle of our living room (our living room serves as a second tack room). She looked and me with her big loving eyes and ask, "You can fix it for me, right?"

Thus began my adventure in leather work. I started researching how to properly clean, condition, and repair old saddles. I read every article and watched every video I could find online. We worked together and got that old Simco back into great shape. The 4-H kids still use it today.

The beautiful custom leather pieces I saw online while doing my saddle restoration research stirred a fire in me. I made myself a few small leather pieces and a holster based off what I'd seen online. I was just having fun and had no idea I was getting ready to embark on an amazing journey. My passion for making premium leather turned into an obsession. Starting my own business had been in my bucket list for more than a decade, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to give it a shot.

I owe my success to a supportive family, loyal friends, and customers who are willing to take a chance on a little maker from no-where Wisconsin.

Thank you for checking out my work.

    Owner, The One Who Does Everything

    It's just me, myself, and I. No one else. I started working with leather in 2010. I love working with leather and spending time in my shop. Since everything that leaves the shop has my name on it, nothing leaves unless I'm proud to have made it.

My passion is producing premium custom leather gear. I am honored to provide holsters to firearm enthusiasts, sportsmen, concealed carry supporters, and law enforcement. I make a variety of other custom leather goods upon request.

I use the highest quality materials. I use premium native steer hides from Hermann Oak Leather Co., considered one of the finest tanneries in the world. I do not use any imported, economy, or utility grade hides.

Additional policies and FAQs
Prior to using an Alsaker holster, you should familiarize yourself with its functionality. Secure the empty holster to you in the manner it is intended to be used. Prior to placing a firearm into an Alsaker holster for the first time in order to test the holster for fit or retention, you must clear the firearm and magazines of all ammunition following established safety rules. The firearm may then be inserted into the holster.

Alsaker holsters are custom made, therefore they fit only the specific make and model original factory equipped firearm that the holster was built for. Alsaker holsters are not intended to be used with a firearm that has been modified or had accessories added to it, including but not limited to: trigger shoes, extended slide releases, grip adaptors, laser sights, etc. Use of these accessories or any other modification to the firearm may cause improper holster fit and accidental discharge. An Alsaker holster, belt, firearm accessory, or other leather good should never be altered or modified in any way. Using a firearm with modifications / accessories or making modifications to any Alsaker product increases the risk of accidental discharge and voids the warranty.

It is the user’s responsibility to exercise extreme caution when handling or carrying any firearm and the user should assume at all times that the firearm is loaded. Carrying any firearm with a live cartridge in the chamber immediately in front of the firing pin may cause an accidental discharge. Single action revolvers should be carried with the hammer or firing pin resting on an empty chamber.

Your decision to handle or carry a firearm, either for sport or personal defense, carries with it a certain amount of risk and potential injury or death. All firearms are potentially deadly weapons. Death, serious injury, and property damage may result if firearm safety rules are not strictly followed. Firearms should only be handled by a responsible adult who has successfully completed an accredited firearms training course. Firearms shall be kept out of the reach of children and those not properly trained to handle the firearm. Great care must be used with firearms at all times, including when handling, storing, transporting, or placing or removing a firearm from an Alsaker holster.

We respect your privacy. We will never share or sell your personal information with anyone.

The user bears full responsibility for the risks associated with handling a firearm. Alsaker Custom Leather, L.L.C. is not liable for unintended or accidental discharges of the firearm. If a holster becomes worn, damaged, or ill-fitting you should not use the holster. It is the user’s responsibility to personally verify all products are in proper working condition every time the products are used.
