Doc Holliday Style Shoulder Rig

Video

 

Beaver News #67 – February 19, 2018

A client wanted to have a shoulder rig similar to the one that Doc Holliday made famous.

In Cowboy Action it’s not uncommon that we take on a persona, dress like that historic person and want to have the accessories that person had and made famous.

Who was Doc Holliday?
A dentist by trade, John Henry “Doc” Holliday (1851-1887) was a gunman and gambler and became a folk hero of the American West as the close friend of fellow gunslinger Wyatt Earp. Together they were the famous faces at the legendary battle of the West, the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

As you know, our motto is 

You Dream it – We Make it!

If you have a hero in history or a hero from a movie (like this one we did last fall), let us know, we love making your dreams come true.

So check out this weeks video of the Doc Holliday Style Shoulder Rig that Mark made for this client.

How to clean and condition leather goods

New Video: “How to take care of leather goods?”

This is a question that we are asked a lot, so we decided to answer it in this weeks Beaver News and also make a video about it.

First of all: You only need to do this every once in a while ! The main purpose is to put oils onto the leather that then impregnate into the leather which will keep it nice and pliable and above all protected.

Here a short summary of what to do and what NOT to do:

Step 1
Before you use any of the products we suggest, make sure you take off all the dust and dirt. Use a small soft brush and some lukewarm water and brush off the dirt and then take a nice soft cotton cloth and wipe it dry.
DO NOT immerse the leather into the water and make it soaking wet.

Step 2
Take the product of your choice (Neatsfoot Oil, 4Way Care, Lexol or Natur Glo) and apply a moderate amount onto a soft cotton cloth and wipe down your rig or leather product.
DO NOT apply directly onto the leather

Step 3
We use some Fiebing’s Aussie Leather Conditioner  that helps protect the leather.

Step 4
When everything is dry (after about 2-3 hours) take a soft brush (or a cotton cloth) and buff it out. The heat friction will help penetrate the conditioner and help create a coating on the outside. It also give you a very nice lush color and makes your leather look really good.
