911 Leather

image      What can I say, Erik Falkenstrom with 911 leather has been an over achiever since I inquired about reviewing a product from Mr. Falkenstrom says several times that, “this should last a man’s career”, meaning of course the products he offers that do not see firefighting conditions.

The first product sent was a axe belt. Custom made, black leather with white stitching, my last name stamped on the rear and “Station Pride” etched into the axe loop. The leather straight from the box appeared tough, thick but still flexible. The loop for the axe handle is big enough for any axe handle but not so big that it sits “sloppy”. The belt was built with my size in mind but given extra holes to accommodate for gear and years of weight gain or loss. While I’ve only used it a few times (due to call volume) it has held up very well and will continue to do so for years.image


The next product I received was a custom made shave/toiletries bag completely made of leather. The handle was a cutout of a fire axe and heavily stitched to the bag. The zipper is strong and stiff but I’m sure will loosen over time after use. The front is adorned with a leather Maltese cross with my name and dept etched into it. The rear has another pocket that I keep my razors in, again strong but somewhat stiff zipper. As said before Erik says, “this should last a career”. The offers many products including but not limited to, axe belts, leather suspenders, shave bags and they are all custom to your order.
