  3. Rest In Peace Dear Friend- RaySouth

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

    Those came out so cool! I love the dragon scales. Nice job!
  5. 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
  6. I'm interested in your laser setup! REALLY nice work too by the way.
  7. Broken Oblong Punch

    That's my next step. I bout it over a year ago from OTB. Thanks Bruce!
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 3x3 Tree of life

    that's a nice one!
  13. Weaver Strap Edgers

    $600 is a steal! I think I could get by with the less $$ one for now but would probably grow out of it quick. Have you sent in the blades for sharpening at all? If so, is the turnaround fairly quick?
  14. Weaver Strap Edgers

    Thanks all for the insight! I'm leaning towards the more expensive one at the moment. I understand it's less expensive buying through Weaver with a wholesale account.
