  1. YAYYY!!!! Knipknives

    Great looking set there! I'm amazed that he doesn't charge twice as much for his products because he could and it would still be a good deal for the buyer. Now you need to ask him if he will make you a Petit French Model knife. It's a smaller version of the french model you have and it is BY FAR my favorite knife.

    Why the animosity towards tapatalk? What would be the downside?
  3. Thank you everyone for your replies. They have been very helpful!
  4. Can someone tell me why one would make a briefcase/satchel where the back and top closure portions are made out of separate pieces of leather instead of one continuous piece? Is this just to allow the designer to pick the cleanest pieces of leather and add some interesting stitching detail, or does it serve a structural purpose?
  5. I recently bought a wonderful natural combination tanned hide from Acadia during their new years sale. I love the leather it just had a dull tint to it - call it a cool natural or greyish tinted natural. It is still most definitely natural, just not as warm and golden as I would like. Is the something I can do to warm up the finish? My goal was to make my self something that looked like a Bole Double Minister briefcase. https://shop.boletannery.com/products/double-minister-briefcase

  7. Hey Folks - Picked up three skins but only need two of them. Third is for sale. I’m pricing this well below a IV/V grade even though I believe it is much better than that. I'm no grade expert though so please see pictures. Price includes shipping. gg

    Can you tell me how wide of a piece of leather will it take?

  10. Chartermade Pattern Knife

    Price reduced to $275
  11. Up for sale is my lightly used Chartermade pattern knife. Custom made by Terrick out of South Africa. He is world renowned for his blades. I loved it so much I put in another order for one with a different custom handle. Unfortunately, I can't afford to own two of these. This one is sporting an African Ebony handle with mosaic pins. Asking $295 delivered to your door. Includes custom box.
  12. To be honest I'm not sure what I should be more comfortable with when it comes to how each of these will affect suede... Is it safe to infer from what you said that you would go with vinegar?
  13. Wonderful! Thank you all so much for the advice.
  14. Thank you for your recommendations. Can anyone speak to mold removal? My fear is that I'll be able to make it look clean, but the mold spores will still be lurking waiting to rear their ugly heads at the first sign of moisture. gg
