  1. They look great, nice work. Doug
  2. Thank you Tom, that's the best compliment I've ever received.
  3. Couple of pics of a belt I recently made for myself, I don't often get to do things like that. Black Sedgewick bridle leather with red buckle holder, also bridle leather, fully hand stitched with linen thread. The buckle is Italian and the keeper is hand made from stainless steel. Cheers, Doug
  4. I use a type of Regad to heat the paint and lots of sanding. I generally don't burnish if I'm using edge paint. I use Uniters as well, depending on the colour I'm trying to match, it's good stuff. Doug
  5. Thank you everyone for your comments, it means a lot. I still have things I think I can improve on, and isn't that what keeps us all going in this craft. Doug
  6. Hi, It's Vernis edge paint. I got it from Rocky Mountain Leather. I still spend more time on edges than anything else, but it's still the first thing a lot of people look at. Cheers
  7. Thanks for the kind words guys. Doug
  8. Hi, The texture is a feature of this type of calf skin and the photo's do not do it justice, it really is beautiful. It's called Taurillon Lagon and it comes from France. I purchased it on-line from Europelle in Hong Kong, they are very good to deal with, but it only comes in a few colours. Almost forgot to mention that this only comes from Bull Calves. Hope this helps, Doug
  9. Pics of a sheath I made for a small hunter recently. Exterior is Bordeaux calf skin and the lining is Black goat skin, hand stitched with Brick linen thread. Knife handle is African Blackwood. Cheers, Doug
  10. Thanks for the comments all, the Brogue punches are a great little tool for adding some interest. Doug
