Well, because it was. A couple years ago, when I first purchased my Mk VII Deagle (contraction of Desert Eagle, FWIW), I had no idea how hard it would be to find a quality holster for it. Enter this leather version from Zahal. I found a link to these guys from this guy. Ordered on 21 July 2010, received in Vance, Alabama from Shoham, Israel on 03 August 2010. These folks were quick to ship, the order is correct, the quality appears sufficient, the price was good, and, oh yeah, no one else (that I have found) makes something like this (at least, commercially).
Having just put all of this together, I have no useful opinions except... It appears to be sturdy. It certainly fits the Deagle correctly. It is pretty much exactly what I was looking for. Happy to have found it and happy to have contributed to the Israeli economy.
As received, the little Deagle picture is a magnet they sent along and I have covering the address sticker.

Mounted Deagle (right side). I made the scratch that can be seen near the muzzle end when I opened the package. No big deal to me as it will certainly receive worse than that at some point.
