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.
