    Honour animals, craftsmanship and yourself

    This is a quick introduction to my new business account.
    I have been a regular CGN member for many years!

    I'm happy to be here and share my products with my fellow CGN troops


    ------ What I do ------

    Leather goods such as wallets, key chain, lifting straps, dog collar, etc.


    ------ The material I work with ------

    I use the best full grain leather from the Wickett & Craig tannery of North America http://www.wickett-craig.com

    Everything is hand stitched with a thread too thick to fit through a sewing machine called the " Ritza 25 Tiger thread"
    It's made in Germany and definitely the best leather thread in the world http://www.juliuskoch.com/products/sewing-thread.php


    ------ What's in it for you ------

    You get to own a beautiful leather product that will never dismantle
    In fact, high quality leather gets more elegant with time. It becomes patina (glossy) like a good old pair of leather boots.

    Traditional hand stitching, called saddle stitching, is much stronger than a sewing machine stitch because the thread is thicker and there's no tension between the stitch points (a grown man cannot rip apart a well stitched seam)
    Not to mention that the thread is coated with organic beeswax to seal it all


    ------ Sacrifice ------

    The true cost of leather is death. Animals have had to make the ultimate sacrifice for their bodies are long gone but not their spirit
    My work is a tribute to their strength
    You get to carry on their spirit, and perhaps yours, for many generations to come


    ------ What we stand for ------

    Retail stores have overwhelmed us with junk
    Unfortunately, leather goods have been part of that sea and we think it's insulting

    Leather isn't just a piece of inorganic matter
    It comes from a unique spirited body that was once alive and strong

    Leather shouldn't be used lightly

    -----------------------------------------
    The past is back and you're welcome!

    Pat from the Space Cavalry leather company


    Because a post without pictures sucks I decided to give a sneak peek of our leather Coin pouch.

    Yes sir. Unfortunately custom work is on hold at the moment (and usually limited to customers in Ottawa-Gatineau region as I would need the knife or handgun for epic/custom fit).

    Oh yeah - sheaths... good call.

    Will keep an eye out for the website.

    He uses imagebb as an image hosting site. When you select copy url it throws in an ad link to whatever. OP: in future when you paste the pics make sure to remove the last part so those ads dont get pasted as well.
    Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides that, itís all in the reflexes.
