  1. bought some scraps of elephant leather. 1st time working with it. anyone have any tips on how to work with this stuff. had trouble smoothing out the edges. but it fits knife well sits on hip comfortably
  2. Hello, I bought some toads and need to recover some of the cost, 5 1/2" toads are $8, 6" toads are $9, 9" toads are $20. Let me know if anyone is interested, these are the same toads listed at $14 on Springfield leathers website. Thanks, Dan
  3. Needing some help with regard to the regulations in the European Union and finished products made with exotic leather. I have been asked by a customer to make a wallet that they want to send to a relative in the EU as a Christmas gift. I know regulations are different in the EU with regard to exotic leathers and I would hate to have someone buy a wallet from me only to have it confiscated by customs. I mentioned the issue to the customer and they said that their mother-in-law was actually going to take the wallet back with her when she returned. I told them customs could just as easily confiscate it from her.. maybe he wants her locked up?? In any case does anyone have any experience with this and if so what are the basic regulations. Thanks in advance for your help. Ed
  4. Anybody wanna share where you're getting this? I got some from Roje, no complaints. And I bought some from another guy.. but didn't care for it. I don't know enough about every species of shark, or the myriad of ways it's tanned, to claim that wasn't shark, but I returned it (they guy was decent about taking the return, so I didn't begrudge being out the shipping charges). Seems like I'm seeing it at $40-60 per foot -- that sound normal?
  5. Using exotic leather on your leatherwork can give your craft a very eye-catching look and add value and interest in what you are making. In this video tutorial see how I use alligator skin to give a simple pencil case a whole new look and feel. If alligator skin is not your thing, then you could use a wide variety of other leather types or materials in it's place to make it unique. Regardless, what I love about handmade leather goods is that in the end you have something that will most likely be with you for a lifetime and carry a story with it. If you'd like to try your hand and making this project a printable PDF pattern with instructions and materials I used to make this project can be downloaded from my website at www.fischerworkshops.com To see how it's made just click here to view my video guide to making an exotic leather pen case

  8. Ok so this is the very first time I have ever worked with sting ray, have an interesting bracelet in the works that my wife wants to do so will take picutres of that when its done. Two things that I have found out about stingray A: It's a real pain in the ass to cut B: It does not burnishes worth a damn you have to use more sand paper than anything else but it does look very nice. C. it does take edge dressing nicely you can't see it in this photo as I had not dressed it with the dressing at the time of the photo will take a better photo shots later on tomorrow. The lining is pig skin, had an idea of mixing a few different exotic skins together to make different wallets such as stingray and ostrich or something along that line. So my question for everyone is has anyone else worked with exotic leathers, if so what was it and name two things you learned about that leather to help us newbies out when it comes to exotic leather.
  9. So, I found a nice piece of llama leather and thought of using it as a lining for wallet. The only problem with that is using on the inside doesn't let you see the leather as well. Can I glue it on the outside of a piece of a wallet without any problems? I would hate to glue this on and then have it come off after a week. Has anyone done this? What about when I stitch it all together? Any advice would be appreciated!
  10. Well, it's taken me a while but I finished my wife's purse last night. It seemed like every time I got started on it again I would get a paying order so it would have to go on the back burner. Fortunately, my wife is very understanding and is just happy to show off her new bag. The body is made from bison and red deer leather. The bling is made from a variety of leather; cow, ostrich, cane toad, stingray and who knows what else. I made the clasp from a piece of turquoise and deer antler. Everything was sewn by hand using artificial sinew. Darren
  11. I made this arm guard for one of our men in uniform down in Florida. It is Honduran caiman backed with vegetable-tanned cowhide. The trim is deer and I carved the lace hooks from deer antler. Everything was sewn by hand using artificial sinew. Darren
  12. I just finished this bag for Roy Mackey of Lone Star Game Calls. It was an interesting project because of the pockets, box call sheath and striker sleeves he wanted on it. I had never made a bag like this before so I really had to think about how I was going to put it all together. Surprisingly enough, my plan worked out and I was pleased with the end result. One thing I really like about this bag is I got to use rare earth magnets as clasps for the flaps. I hardly ever get to use magnets because they don't play well with the electronics most folks like to carry around. The body of the bag is buffalo and red deer. The trim is a mixture of ostrich hide, ostrich leg skin, caiman and deer. The adjustable straps are red deer and I carved the buttons out of deer antler. Everything was sewn by hand using artificial sinew. Darren
  13. Here are three armguards I made that will be part of the United Bowhunters of Missouri Festival auctions on Saturday, February 7th. The first one is made from elephant hide and is backed with vegetable-tanned cowhide. The trim is lambskin and the lace hooks are carved from deer antler. The second one is made from ostrich leg skin and is backed with vegetable-tanned cowhide. The trim is deer and the lace hooks are carved from deer antler. The last one is made from caiman hide and ostrich leg skin and is backed with vegetable-tanned cowhide. The trim is deer and the lace hooks were carved from deer antler. All these armguards were sewn by hand using artificial sinew. Come play with us the weekend of February 6th-8th to bid on these and other great items! Darren
  14. Hello, I am looking for someone who can repair zippers on a pool stick case that is made of alligator skin. It is my husband's and he has tried to get it repaired before, but with no luck. He has not found anyone with the skill to be able to take on the project. Please contact me if you are, or if you know of someone who is, a leatherworker who can work with exotic skins like alligator. I don't have a picture of the case currently, but can provide one if needed. Thanks!
  15. I made these for a couple of guys I met on the traditional archery forum, TradGang. Both are made from ostrich leg skin and backed with vegetable-tanned cowhide. The trim is deer hide and I carved the lace hooks from deer antler and then stained them with aniline dye. Everything was sewn by hand using artificial sinew. Darren
  16. I finished this full-length armguard last week; just in time for Missouri's archery season. I will use it when I wear my ghillie suit. Now if it will just cool off enough to put them both on! The body of the armguard is made from Honduran caiman and backed with vegetable-tanned cowhide. The trim is lambskin and I carved the lace hooks from deer antler. The whole thing was sewn up by hand using artificial sinew. Darren
  17. here's the dilema... I received a rattlesnake skin and want to use it as face for wallets and such. the piece is 48"l x 5"w. It's kinda stiff but with a touch of water it softens up so I can work it to the shape of the wallet outer I have two questions I hope someone out ther can help answer; 1. should i cut to size and cement it to the 4oz leather back - then just build the wallet from there. or will i need to trim or inlay the piece? 2. Do I need to treat the skin on the outside for this application? thanks for your time Best DN
