A sturdy belt is the foundation on which any carry rig is based. No holster will perform at its best unless it is anchored firmly in place and the weight is well supported.

Belts made of flimsy materials, and narrow belts in general, may require tightening to an uncomfortable degree in an effort to support the holstered handgun.

The B8 Belt is the culmination of years of experience carrying handguns of every type, all day, every day. Two layers of heavy cowhide, cemented and stitched together, 1.5" width around the body tapering to 1" at the front for enhanced comfort.

BASE PRICE: $100.00

Available Options:

Basketweave tooling, add $70.00

Fancy "lazy stitch" pattern, add $30.00 (note that the pattern may vary because of the space to be stitched).

Hand-carved to match the carving of the Classic Tom Threepersons' style holster, $165.00 complete.


1. Belt sizes are NOT THE SAME as trouser waist sizes. I ask each belt customer to measure a belt now in use, from the tip of the buckle to the tongue hole in use, to assure a proper fit.

2. IWB-Style holsters will typically require a belt length about 2" longer than normally worn.

3. Base price applies to belts up to 50" size. Longer sizes up to 60" may be ordered for an additional $15.00.

PLEASE NOTE: Belt measurement is the customer's responsibility. Belts made to the size ordered WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR RETURN DUE TO INCORRECT SIZE.



For the B8 tapered belts I stock the three buckle style shown.

Oxford-style, solid brass.

Oxford-style, nickel.

Jeremiah Watt "HorseShoe" brand, cast stainless steel with black enamel accents.


Buckles are interchangeable, so any 1" buckle may be added. Various buckle styles may change belt fitting due to dimensions.
