Default Customer request's

Just thought i'd show you guy's some customer request's for leatherwork that I've completed.
More than one customer have already contacted me again for further order's

One of the customer's is a security consultant for the british armed service's who regularly travel's between the uk and the world wide hot zone's.
His collegues have shown great interest in my work and intend on placing order's in the near future...

Let's get this out of the way... not into the sinew wrap around the edge of the first piece. Personally, I think it detracts from the very fine workmanship and it is great but I can't get past that.

The rest are great though, those pouches are stunning, particularly the 1st one and the combo at the end is top work indeed.

Great work

Very nice work, but i'm not a fan of the sinew wrap either. I can fully appreciate the time and effort that has gone into it, and you have done a quality job of it, but it's all just a bit too much. Makes the sheath look way too busy and does detract from the quality and detail of the leathercraft.

I know what some of you boy's are saying about the sinew wrap making the sheath look a little too busy.
Generally it's something I would not apply to a sheath.
But if it's what a customer want's and he's willing to pay for it, then i'm not gonna argue with him...

Many thank's for the positive input guy's, as alway's it's appreciated.
