Another little set for one of our board members

#1

Post by Boriqua »

Like I said .. I rarely take custom orders anymore but .. I took this one from one of our own and just finished it a couple days ago.

Medium brown faceplate with some twisted somewhat coarse dark brown stitching on a dark brown body with "cigar" stitching. Manufacturer name.

All sewn by hand with an awl on a stitching pony. The edges are sanded and burnished with a horn before getting sealed. I never ever use edge paint.

and finally its sealed with acrylic using an airbrush.

The gentleman was very kind and had included a tip w his payment but I dont feel comfortable taking more than I quoted so instead of returning the difference .. I made a matching mag pouch. Cant wait for him to see it in person.

Some of the pix are at the same angle but with the light coming from different directions. The dark brown has wonderful red highlights in it that really look nice when the light hits it.

I feel like a proud papa. The pictures cannot even start to show the quality, craftsmanship and art that went into this. I loved it from the pics, but it is AMAZING in person. I'm going to go through the breakin process but i may only wear it for special occasions; it's just too damn pretty for daily use!
