Thanks for visiting our site!
I’m Matthew Dyer, owner and craftsman at Swordslinger Custom Holsters. I’ve been playing and been around the art of leathercraft my whole life. My wife and I got married in 2012 and had dreams of owning and running our own business from our farm in South Louisiana from the start. We had no idea that we would end up doing leathercraft as a living, but the Lord Jesus provided a wonderful blessing after several years of prayers and a few failed business ideas, and Swordslinger Custom Holsters was born. We run the business from our home, and every item is handcrafted by either my wife or myself. We take great pride in everything we make, and strive to perfecting our craft.
Although “holsters” is in our name, that’s not all we make. We also make custom belts, knife sheaths, wallets, pistol cases, Bible covers and a lot more. If you have a special project in mind, feel free to ask us about it.
You may be wondering "why the name Swordslinger?"
Well it's simple. We believe in the right to own and bear arms given to us by our Creator. We are also Christians and believe in the Bible (Which is the Word of God). Jesus Christ commanded us in Luke 22:36 "...and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.", now back then the standard weapon of the time was a Roman short sword. Jesus thought it was so important to own a sword that you need to sell your robe or coat to do it. Now back then that was one of their most prized possessions. In today's age the modern equivalent to a Roman short sword would be a semi automatic rifle or pistol. So why do we need to be armed? It is simple as well, in 1 Timothy 5:8 it says "But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever". We are commanded to provide for our family, and that includes defense against anyone that would try to harm them.
So we as Christians who bear arms are "Swordslingers" in a since, according to Luke 22:36. Now with that being said, it also has a double meaning. We as Christians are commanded to "sling" or preach the Word of God in season and out of season when needed, and in Ephesians 6:17 we are commanded to take up "the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God". So we sling the Word of God or the Sword of the Spirit when called upon as we are commanded.
