Live Life Protected

Rooted in Craftsmanship

In 1958, John Bianchi decided to build a better holster. A full-time police officer in Southern California, he wanted a holster that offered better performance, reliability and function. He needed a holster he could trust. Bianchi set about crafting his first leather holster in his garage, one that he could wear with confidence and pride while on duty.

Over a half-century later, the Bianchi hallmarks of handcrafted workmanship, innovative yet functional design and exceptional quality are as strong today as they were decades ago. From everyday carry to law enforcement, ranchers to fishermen, and hikers to hunters, Bianchi holsters and handcrafted leather accessories are trusted by those who desire to live life protected.

A History of Excellence

Through the 50s and 60s, Bianchi focused on exceeding the requirements of the law enforcement and military markets, becoming the brand of choice the world over. In the early 70s, Bianchi expanded to the outdoor sporting and OEM markets, achieving dozens of patents and product innovation awards. 

Revolutionary holster innovations include the widely used thumb snap feature, the Model 27 “Break Front” holster featuring security and allowing a rapid draw, and the innovative Model X15® Shoulder Holster. The popularity of the X15® set the stage for Bianchi’s innovation in concealed carry design, which the company developed into the broadest line of truly innovative, concealment holsters available.
