Announcement   Thank you for your support. I am back, just re-opened my Etsy shop after temporarily closing it for approximately 3 yrs. For all my past Etsy customers I appreciate you and your emails.

My name is Bob Grove and I am the owner and operator of Bob Grove Saddle Works. I am now retired but I do have a home licensed shop. I have 50 plus years’ experience as a saddle maker and leather smith. All my products are hand made by me and one at a time and with American Pride. I use only premium grade #1 vegetable tanned leather and it is the best I have found. All my products are made one at a time and by me, with an eye for detail and quality. Our leather products with its classic styling, quality, craftsmanship and commitment to detail are truly a cut above the others. I have a “Best Of The Best” gun leather product line; all leather holsters and hybrid holsters. My “Best of The Best” products have a Forever Warranty. I think I am one of very few that offer a Forever Warranty for leather holsters. With or without a warranty I always stand behind all my products and customer satisfaction is a must.
Forever Warranty
Bob designed his line of The Best Of The Best products to be the best on today’s market and will back any of these product with a “30 day wear it /or return it” within 30 days for a full refund if not fully satisfied. Further Bob will guarantee any of “The Best Of The Best” products with a Forever Warranty covering defects in material and or workmanship. This warranty does not cover stitching. You ask why. Because stitching will dry rot if not maintained. Additionally this warranty will not cover problems caused by excessive water damage, malfunctions or damage not resulting from defects in material or workmanship. Bob reserves the right to repair or replace at his discretion. All warranty claims require a receipt for proof of purchase. The Forever Warranty is good as long as Bob Grove is of sound mind and body, and able to continue working as a leather smith/saddle maker. NOTE: Bob will repair most problems even when not covered by warranty. Regarding return goods: please contact Bob for full instructions.
Stitching is easy to maintain. However, most people do not or know how to maintain it. To maintain stitching you need to, at least once per year, apply wax to the stitching. A neutral paste/wax shoe polish is all you need. Apply it liberally.

If you are looking for a professional custom handmade leather product I invite you to review my shop, The Saddle Doctor, on ETSY. Each product can be custom designed to meet your requirements. If you do not see what you are looking for in my shop on ETSY, just ask for it.

Shipping Policies

Be Aware that some slight color deviation is possible due to the nature of veg. tanned leather. Colors can deviate on leather even when using leather from the same hide. Tooling leather has good grain patterns and patterns can change within the same hide. The leather we use has not been artificially altered to cover up range marks, etc.. Our leather is top premium grade no. 1 vegetable tanned leather and it is the best I have found over my 53 years of buying hides.

The final product was even more impressive in person! The quality of the work is amazing, and when I ordered, the turnaround time was super fast! I was kept up to date at every stage of the process. Thank you so much Mr Grove! You truly have a God-given talent! Thank you again!
