Hi strap lovers, We here at Dangerous9straps are proud to offer straps in just about any exotic skin one can imagine as well as straps made form 'TrueVintage' Ammo straps from Germany, Sweden, France and Switzerland. But, it all started with just leather straps. And not just any leather either: we use only the very finest top grain vegetable tanned tooling leather. We build each strap by hand and then dye each individual strap to our customer's request. We've developed extremely complex multiple stage staining and dying techniques that can make new leather look like it has been worn and lovingly cared for for decades. Except when we don't. And that's exactly what we didn't do for Solomon's newly completed natural leather strap you see here. Yes, of course is't been completely hand build to his exact specifications using the thickest naturally tanned top grain leather, but as per Solomon's request, we skipped the dye completely and let the beautiful leather shine through in all it's creamy glory! The leather will darken and mellow slowly with light exposure and over the years turn to a beautiful vintage tan. Stitched with our heaviest cream colored 7 ply, waxed Irish linen, it looks incredibly clean. Mounted with our upgrade vintage style, flat, 3mm thick, custom 'D9' logo, sewn-in buckle with a polished finish, it's going to look stunning with Solomon's U-Boat Classico. I hope Solomon sends along some photo when he gets his new strap on this U-Boat and if he does, you see them here soon.
