Business Hours are Monday through Friday 8am - 5pm.
I wont answer business calls after 5pm or on weekends, text messages or Facebook messages. The past two weeks I have been getting messages till 11pm and I appreciate the business but I'm not up late. I'm up early working out and in the shop. (713) 898-0088

All belts are made custom and made to fit, a pants size or belt size is not what I use in order to make them. I will tell you how to measure when you contact me.
While I build custom knives and leather goods I always build more then one item so I can continue to build up stock. Blades are cut and shaped one day. Heat treated the next day. While waiting for knives to be treated I work on everything else. So, if you see a new knife pop up on Face book and your wondering why it was done before your knife was, it's because I build them in stages. Metal work and leather work don't mix to well. Dust from polishing and grinding knives can ruin leather. So, I always do leather separate from knives since I work out of my 1.5 car garage. When it rains work come to a halt since all my knife work is done outside of my shop. Its not good mixing metal dust with leather.
New knives are placed on Facebook before the website because I can easily do this with my phone from my work bench. 85% of the time their sold within minutes of posting them. If you look at my Knives & Sheath page and see something you like click on the photo and read the description and tell me what your interested in so I can start on one for you.
As of right now I'm not making anything but holsters, rifle slings, gun belts, knives and sheaths unless you have ordered from me before and I always will help out previous customers along with a discount. I just don't have the time to build tool belts, purses and misc. cases.
Yes, i do offer layaway on orders of $99 or more. You can pay weekly, monthly or pay for it over a six month period.
DONATIONS: Yes, I do donate items from time to time. See Donations and The Patriot Knife
DISCOUNTS: Everyone ask if I discount for Military and Law Enforcement well I say this: I'm a veteran and retired from law enforcement. I will work with anyone about getting them a great deal on my goods.
DOWN PAYMENT: All custom orders require 50% down payment to make the other half upon completion before shipping. I use PayPal or if in person I have a card reader for my phone.
SHIPPING: As for shipping I use the flat rate boxes from the USPS and insurance for items over $100. It's fast for me and there within 3-5 business days. Many times customers in Texas have gotten their items overnight.
