double tongue stainless steel

•July 4, 2014 • 1 Comment

Genuine English bridle that is actually from England – NOT the stuff made by American tanneries – is pretty incredible. It comes with a coat of tallow on the surface of the hide and can be buffed to a very nice shine. It also works great with my double tongue stainless buckles. I just wish I could get it a little thicker. This belt is 11/12 oz. and a dark Havana brown.

Bag Sale

•July 4, 2014 • Leave a Comment

I recently purchased a side of veg tanned 9 oz. water buffalo to see what it’s like. It’s a dense, rugged leather that should wear well. I decided to make a bag from it. The straps on this one are Horween veg tanned horsehide. The exterior back pocket is Hermann Oak veg tanned steer. There are 3 big Horween front quarter internal pockets. The buckles and clips are solid brass. The rivets are copper and the d-rings are stainless. If anybody is interested in this one it is $200.00 + shipping.

Both of these straps are made from veg tanned horsehide. The top one is a new Nato. The bottom is a Zulu that has been used a lot for the past 3 years.
