Davis Leather Company was started in 1975 in California by G. William Davis, Gordon to all who knew him. Gordon worked with John Bianchi and Neale Perkins at Safari Limited back in 1965 before each of these major holster makers started their own businesses. Then Gordon went on to build and design holsters at Safariland and then Bianchi before starting Davis Leather. Once he started, Gordon was committed to building a business that produced leather goods at the highest standards and quality. Over the years, many shooters and professionals have come to depend on that quality. Gordon moved his business several times through the years, and ended by bringing it here to Ash Fork, Arizona in 2001.
With more than 40 years experience building all kinds of fine leather goods, Davis Leather can supply your needs. Whether you are looking for the best quality concealed carry holster, police duty gear, a gun rig for SASS or Cowboy Fast Draw, chinks, chaps, or any number of custom items that we make–give us a call and we can work out the details of your order. We love working on that special item that you just can’t get anywhere else.
Over the last 40 years I have had the privilege to work with and learn from some of the best craftsmen in the leather industry. Gordon, my last mentor and good friend, taught me how to build and design holsters at a master’s level. John Bianchi once told me that Gordon was the best holster craftsman he had ever known. Gordon and I worked side by side for six years. When he retired in 2006, I bought all his equipment and patterns and now carry on the Davis Leather tradition. While we lost Gordon in November of 2012, his best designs live on.
The new company logo takes the omega of Davis Leather and adds my small maker’s stamp to the center to form an alpha as well. This is to remind me that my work must please a greater Master — the Alpha and Omega, (Colossians 3:17 and Revelation 1:8).
