  1. You might check with Bruce Johnson. He has vintage learher tools and is a good guy to do business with, honest and good service.
  2. I use the B King and like it. To me, the most important thing with any knife is to have a sharp, polished blade...
  3. The ring is for your tie strings, I carry mine doubled over the back belt and the tails go thru the ring to keep them handy and out of your way. Tie strings are used to tie a cow or calf after roping them for doctoring... or what ever you need to hold one down for. At least that's how I utilize the ring...!
  4. ...if you were closer, I'd take you out calling! I've only shot four this week...
  5. Take a look at Panhandle Leather, they have a good selection of hardware and the are good folks to deal with. Weaver should have what you need as well... Merry Christmas to all!
  6. I've had a roller guide on a Ferdinand 900 B and never used it, traded up to a Cobra Class 4 without a guide and haven't wanted for one . I use a stitching groover and follow it with my eye... You might try stitching before you spend the $ on one, you may do just fine without it. I guess it also depends on what you are making as well.
  7. Just a thought... Rear D placement should be measured from the front D and not the cantle due to the size of the seat. A 13" seat is a lot different than a 16" seat.
  8. I'm happy with my Cobra 4 and the service from Steve and staff. I sold a Ferdinand 900B to buy the Class 4 and have not had any regrets. I have not used any of the others on your list. Not a lot of help, just my 2 cents worth. If at all possible, go test drive your chosen list and see how they compare.
  9. Nice job! My 3rd didn't look that good... If you don't mind, who made the tree? It looks like a OY without leg cuts? Very clean lines and your tooling and pattern are really good. I see a style emerging...!
  10. Great job! Your sewing is very nice. Good design as well.
  11. I use leftover oiltan chap leather. I believe it is better for your horse and sweat doesn't harden it as much as vegtan, keeps the headstall soft longer.
  12. I asked my wife what she wanted for her birthday. She said "a divorce". I told her that I wasn't planning on spending that much....
