    Wow that is cool! I've been wanting to decorate my workhorse rawhide mallet and this is inspiring.
  2. Thanks! I don't remember what it was called off hand. I'll see if I can find it...
  3. I use a Cobra Class 4 from Leather Machine Co. I love it! I use it for light 4/5 all the way up to 10/12 no problem. Can't go wrong with one of these.

    BUMP! Make me an offer! I'm not in a hurry to sell this, but throw me a number.

  6. Rest In Peace Dear Friend- RaySouth

    RIP Ray. I enjoyed his contributions here. I wish I could have met him.
  7. stamps as suggestion

    Those came out so cool! I love the dragon scales. Nice job!
  8. Custom swivel knife

    I love my SK from Leather Wranglers! Paul makes a great knife. I had mine made custom, pyrographed artwork by Britt Nantz. sk-1 sk-2
  9. I'm interested in your laser setup! REALLY nice work too by the way.
  10. Broken Oblong Punch

    That's my next step. I bout it over a year ago from OTB. Thanks Bruce!
  11. Broken Oblong Punch

    Hey all, My Osborne Oblong Punch recently failed on me. I used it like normal and one side of the blade edge cracked and sort of folded in on itself. I haven't used this one very much, maybe 50 or so holes. Does anyone know if they carry a warranty? Seems to me these should last forever with proper care but I did nothing out of the ordinary with it. I use a rubber poundo board as a cutting surface.
  12. Very cool Ray! The shop space you built looks amazing! I have mine setup in a corner of the garage where I share it with the wife's car and the kid's bikes. Haha! I do have windows though which is nice but I really envy all the ROOM you have. Cheers!
  13. I use dyes. I have also used a non-traditional method for color by way of Sharpie pens. Excellent control and a ton of colors out there. Check out my Instagram feed @blackthornleather for images.
  14. I follow that artist on Instagram, he's from Russia and I don't know his name (I can't read the language. Haha!) ALWAYS really cool work on there. My guess is dyes expertly painted on, sealed very well with a resist, and antiqued. That's my method anyway.
