When we were in Baltimore and people would comment on the different size flasks – the key chain flasks being so tiny that it couldn’t possibly hold enough of anything, all the way up to the 12oz flasks that they couldn’t imagine drinking all of – I would laugh just a little to myself. Those key chain flasks wouldn’t get me drunk, but they’d give me a buzz (after spending the last 4.5 years either pregnant or with small children, my alcohol tolerance is pretty sad). And that 12oz flask, well, that flask doesn’t hold a candle to the flask I made a holster for right before we left.
I made a flask holster, and belt to match, for a half gallon flask. Yeah, that’s right. This baby holds 64 shots, so if drinking is literally a team sport where you’re from, it’s perfect for you. And in that case, someone needs a holster to match. After all, carrying a flask like that in your hands is not only awkward, it’s heavy! So here’s the solution a customer came up with, and I couldn’t say no.
And the belt to match, because no flask holster would be complete without a matching tire tread inspired belt. All pieces are made by hand in my Seattle studio out of full-grain vegetable tanned leather. The belt is hand carved and the flask holster is branded. The holster has snaps on the back for easy on/off and the edges are stitched by hand. The finish is antique brown.
Yes, I can do holsters for smaller flasks. But this baby is a show-stopper. I would love to see a picture of it in action!
