Product Information

This is a great condition example of a mid to late war Japanese rubberized canvas holster for the Type 14 Nambu pistol. According to Japanese pistol researcher and author James Brown, there are 11 distinct variants of the Type 14 holster. The holsters were manufactured of top grain cowhide until about 1943, at which point the lack of raw materials lead the Japanese to experiment with Rubberized Canvas as a leather substitute. Of the 11 recognized variants of Type 14 holsters, only three were made in rubberized canvas. The Type VIII utilized a canvas body with a leather clamshell closure flap. The Type IX was made entirely of rubberized canvas (except for the leather “hinge” that joined the holster body to the clamshell flap) and even the small spare striker pouch (forward of the ammunition pouch) was made of rubberized canvas material. The final variant, this holster, Type X had a slightly narrower clamshell flap and the spare striker pouch was again made of leather, not canvas. This one even has an original cleaning rod.
