Absolutely amazing! Sad to read you don't do leatherwork anymore. I just love things like this! I'm compiling a list of outstanding examples of leather workmanship I've found over the past year to post it at a Bushcraft forum. (lots of craft orientated people there) I intend showing this as one of the best examples of thinking outside the box, as in not boring, seen-it-a-million-times-before stuff.
Obviously I'll give you full credit and a link to your DA page along with my posting.
Did I mention how amazing I think this is? Not only does it look steampunky but it also looks aged, like it's used and not just roled off the production line.
Big slap on the back to for such outstanding workmanship mate!
Thank you very much!! I do, or shall I say will do international commissions. I have not shipped out of my country yet. I will drop you a note and we can throw around some ideas and figure out a budget.
