It seems appropriate that CrossBreed is announcing this new line of holsters during the companies 10th anniversary. This limited edition holster is being made in collaboration with Jason Winnie Leathergoods. Only 100 holsters will be made in each model.

The introductory model shown is called the Sapientia. This holster is made for the 1911 only. The material is steer hide with an inlay of elephant hide. These holsters are entirely handmade and embossed with both companies logo and the Bible verse James 3:17 and its own individual number. MSRP will be $399.00.

SPRINGFIELD, MO. (11/3/15) – CrossBreed® Holsters and Jason Winnie Leathergoods has announced a limited edition handcrafted holster specifically designed for your 1911. The Sapientia holster is the first of the Virtus series brought to consumers by the two companies. It is an exclusive edition, with only 100 holsters being crafted.

This is not the first time these two companies have worked together to offer exclusive, handcrafted holsters. CrossBreed® Holsters and Jason Winnie Leathergoods will be offering other limited editions of these exclusive Virtus series holsters in the future.

The Sapientia is a pancake-style holster, meticulously crafted by Jason Winnie Leathergoods. It is crafted from genuine steer hide and is inlayed with elephant hide handpicked for this specialty holster. Each holster is embossed with a custom logo highlighting both companies, the bible verse James 3:17 and individual numbers.

The name Sapientia and the selection of elephant hide were derived from the bible verse James 3:17: “But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.”

Future editions of the Virtus series will also highlight a special name, leather and bible verse directly related to the name of the holster.

    First sentence, companies should be company's. 4th sentence, second paragraph, companies logo should be companies' logo (or logos, if there are more than one).

    Just from an appearance/style perspective, I threw up a little in my mouth. It reminds me of that line in "Patton" about pearl-handled grips.

    My Sunday-go-to-meetin'/barbecue/try-to-get-a-girl-to-take-her-clothes-off holster is a Del Fatti.
