Hi dear friends, 

Recently I've finished my backpack. So I just want to share it with you. It took me almost one month to do this project. I used to do this after my day work.

 

Best regards,

Alex

Agreed with the Mutt, that is a great looking backpack. I really like the roll down buckle strap top.

Wallet from saffiano leather. Built as tester.

So far see the following pros: no need to finish this leather, surface is not exposed to scraches - very rugged, does not absorb water.  

Cons: a bit more difficult in work (cutting, splitting...), looks kinda as artificial leather...

Regarding dificulty of work: I use skiving machine to split leather pieces. This machine uses ordinary razor blades for safety rasors. So I needed to replaced blades 4 times more frequently in comparisson with splitting veg tanned leather.
