    Sorry for so late reply. I just was away from home on vacation. I used 8oz (3.2 mm) veg tanned side in these saddlebags

    Да это я так, шучу) На самом деле, работы хорошие)
  3. Hi! Yesterday I finished my first saddlebags. They are for Honda VT750 Shadow. Later, when I will set them uo onto the bike, I will add some new photoes. It was my first expirience in making such thing. That`s why I have done a lot of mistakes. But next time I will do much better

    Благодарю! Многие говорят, что мои работы хорошие, но лично я недоволен, мне ещё много над чем надо работать, особенно в Шеридане. Россия в 90-х была в разрухе, сейчас тут всё по-другому)) Благодарю! Многие говорят, что мои работы хорошие, но лично я недоволен, мне ещё много над чем надо работать, особенно в Шеридане.

  10. Japanese Tooling Leather

    Hi, @SonderingSusan! Of course I know the website cause I found it by myself. It`s http://sanyotan.co.jp/ I liked carving and stamping. The swifel knife slides very easily. Cuts are smooth. Leather keeps water for a very long time that`s why it`s not nessesery to add moisturing durig the process. I took 2 sorts of thier leather - full grain and corrected grain. I liked corrected grain more because there aren`t any scars on the face The flesh side is also smooth and it looks like face. But this leather is little specific because of its colour. It`s not beige like Hermann Oak. It`s yellow. That`s why dyeing may have some difficulties. Many colours are darker on it
  11. My greeting to all leathercrafters! I`m a new one here, as you see. I`ve already shown some of my work. But here I want to talk about the Japanese Veg Tanned tooling leather. I tried it last autumn and I really liked it. It`s really amazing. I ordered it directly from the factory. To tell the truth I found it very suddenly. I was looking for the Himeji White Veg Tanned Leather, but still haven`t found it. Instead of it I found another factory which produces veg tanned leather Is there anybody here who tried or used Japanese leather?

    Thanks a lot, Tom. Glad you liked my works As for Eugene Solomin, I know him personally. And I also have already posted 3 articles in his magazine: 2 about the Japanese dyes (Kioshi Elle and Craft-Sha), and 1 about the Japanese vegtanned leather which I use in my work
  13. Hi! My leathercrafting is not so good as the members` one. I only learnig Here in Russia there are very few good leathercraft schools that`s why it`s rather difficut to find goog teachers. I use the Japanese veg tanned leather in my crafting Hi!
