“A Vision called Steel Strike”


Philip Smith established Steel Strike Leather Products, Inc. in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Since 1989, his vision was to create a line of furnishings that glorifies the American West.
A masterful blend of cowboy and Indian, European and lodge, which he refers to as “Cattle Baron.” Furnishings dedicated to preserving a proud yet elegant way of life. A lifestyle pioneered by his passion for freedom and inspired by the majesty of these mountains.


In 1999, Steel Strike moved to Buena Vista, Colorado, where Philip built a larger manufacturing facility and gallery.


Philip is an avid horseman who loves the Rocky Mountains. His commitment to hard work has made Steel Strike an enduring vision associated with the finest craftsmanship anywhere.
