Milt Sparks Cordovan & Black Shark

I received a Milt Sparks PMK yesterday in cordovan with black shark trim. I saw a similar combo on eBay and thought it looked pretty good. Well, now that I have it in hand, the pictures do not come close to showing how purdy this thing is. I got this as a field holster - added the black shark as a whim. I will be sad when I put the first scratch on it.

I have multiple Sparks holsters in the cordovan color, of slightly various shades, and I prefer that more than the other colors. You are right, pictures don't do these cordovan holsters justice - it's kind of like trying to capture the essence of Turnbull charcoal bluing in a picture, very difficult and still not the same as in person. Nice holster, congrats.

I have two of these in same combination and no words can explain how nice these are or the quality. They are well worth the 4 month wait to get them. getting ready to order another for my new EB Kobra Carry

Very nice !!


Same color shark & leather combination on two Criterions.

I agree.....very sharp looking. My 5” has been used the most.

It continues to look great to me even after some wear.

Thanks. That is an old (mid-80's) Safariland mag pouch. A throwback to my IPSC days.

Adios,

Pizza Bob

Sparks does it right whether you order one of their plain models or something done up with shark or elephant. They all look good, but that cordovan and shark looks REAL nice!

Yeah, I know. I use a S&W 296 (.44spl) loaded with snake shot and a couple of slugs, depending on what I run across. There’s no need for fast draw, I just want it available. I decided I’d rather have my knife on my strong side, so I needed a new weak side holster. I got carried away after that

I know a young lady (so do you) that can’t wait for Christmas to get her holster for a Kimber revolver and that holster is just like yours.
