    Made a few bucks at the recent guitar show... then proceeded to make my wife's eyes roll wayyyy back up in her head by spending every penny on 90 sq. ft. of gorgeous croc embossed cowhide in four flavours: Ink (black) Whisky, Swamp Thang and Chianti

    IMG_0981.JPG

    Great looking smaller scale emboss, with 1/2" - 3/4" wide scales, not super shiny, more a semi-gloss. The green has a fair bit more black / darker contrast than how it appears in this photo, brown has a bit more light/dark contrast too.

    Going to craft these to my higher "Corksniffer" standard, nicely padded and featuring alcantara non-slip and mildew resistant lining. Probably going to be your favourite strap if you get one.

    As it turns out the black hide is the smallest, the green is the largest so there i have to mention limits on availability.

    $75 shipped for my AGF brothers cool bonus included.
    Order a pair, get a SPECIAL Well-Hung bonus!

    Bump for 100% spamnation purposes. I aim to start cutting leather this afternoon.

    This morning I have to work on skirting two yard sheds because my neighbor, (who leaves giant bowls of dog kibble out in his yard 24/7), informed me he's been seeing at least two fart squirrels in and out from under my sheds all summer. I had no idea... thanks for telling me, asshole.

    My dog got full on early, early Tuesday morning, and the upper part of my house is funky (but improving daily). The leather is in the workshop, where I have been going to escape.

    According to the village administrator our small town is being overrun this fall, at least a dozen of them. Goddamn people leaving food out, too lazy to feed their dogs daily, just brings them in.
    Running a one trap trapline three effing cats have sprung it so far. I Love cats, but I getting mad enough to do something drastic if they keep springing my trap

    Anyway back on topic... pre-order a rock-o-dile strap, because they are going to be rather awesome.

    Well, I'm in for one, just not sure yet which color. With your success and frustration trapping cats, any "Hello Kitty" straps on the horizon?

    Send me your mailing address sir!
    If I catch one, I'll send it right over for you to skin.

    just got back from mailing out some strap buttons to a Luthier in South Carolina, and some old school strap locks to a new friend in Savanna, GA - apparently the postmistress's husband (who happens to be my cousin Ken, #smalltown life), has trapped three of them this past week alone and he lives about a block and a half away. Apparently the cat food has been good for him to catch the skunks, but he caught cats when he was using tuna as bait.

    I've been catching cats with cat food as bait. Maybe what he caught are my problems too, still gotta get the saw and drill out to skirt those sheds. Man I should get off the internets and get some shit done

    Guys monies are not due yet, maybe a couple weeks. hold on to it. I'll let you know.
    Should mention I'll be sending out a special bonus with every rock-o-dile, like I do with most pre-orders.
    Remember the 45rpm clocks with the mental straps? that was pretty cool

    Front of shed 1, done!

    Back of shed 1 (probably the main access point), SECURED!

    IMG_0994.JPG

    Sneaky little possible access point beneath the rain barrel, secured!

    IMG_0997.JPG
    No other visible under-shed access points, will have to wait until snowfall to know for sure. Will keep the trapline going in the meantime.

    See how I never have decisions to be made between Lager and Ale? I keep both in stock!

    IMG_0998.JPG

    Time for some hot homemade turkey vegetable soup (with big buttered rye bread and Sriracha), and soon I will commence down to cutting some leather!

    I like the ink color. Looks to have quite a bit of blue in it, yes?

    no river, it's a trick the light/colour balance in that shot only. The black is none more black, and seems slightly glossier than the others, but that might just be my imagination too.

    Two straps are now cut from the leather, one whisky, one ink... Ill just deliver these as they get made,
    so it`s first come/first served. Because the black hide is the smallest, I will only be able to get maybe five blacks.
    I am also pitching this deal on TGP, (though slightly more expensive), but I have no takers as of yet, but if it happens the blacks will probably go first.

    Beautiful leather to work with, just the right stiffness to it for good strapmaking, but will probably soften up fast after a month on the road

    Excellent - already have another black one cut!
    What's your median length hole to hole?

    Should mention here I am making these to adjust between 47" - 57" which seems to cover most men between 5' 9" and 6' 3" who don't play in Beatles or shoegaze cover bands. These straps are about 3-4" LONGER than most stock off the shelf straps.

    If you have special needs, I can accommodate, but you need to tell me when you order.
