Gaetan's BR02 Blue and Singray

Hi all, I wanted to show off some great photos that my great customer Gaetan send to me from France. As many of you already know, I think the BR02 is a great watch design that is too often overshadowed by it's BR01 and BR03 brothers. I think the blue version is a real looker and Gaetan has really captured the spirit of this watch. Thanks!!

Newly acquired "Anceint Swiss Ammo Pouches"

I all, I just this past week had the opportunity to inventory and photograph the huge selection of Ancient and Very, Very old Swiss Ammo pouches that my beautiful and industrious wife has been acquiring in my behalf during her time here in Germany before my recent arrival on April 8th. Have a look, because there are some amazing pouches here including many pouches dating from the WWII era and one dating back to 1899!! These will truly make one of a kind straps!! Thanks for looking and thanks to my wife who's been working with my Swiss supplier to acquire some really rare and unique pouches:-) If you'd like to have any of these pouches fashioned into a very unique Dangerous9strap, please don't hesitate to contact me, as I have a feeling that they'll be going fast!!

Newly Acquired stock of 1960's Swiss Ammo Pouched!!

Hi Strap lovers, My beautiful wife has been hard at work setting Dangerous9straps up in Bavaria in order to make the move as seamless as possible. And, among many things she's been establishing a supply chain for Swiss Ammo pouches to assure that Dangerous9straps has the very best selection of ammo pouches and can continue to offer Swiss Ammo straps at very competitive pricing. Here now are the results of her hard work. If you see a pouch in this slide show that you'd be interested in having me make a strap for you, please contact me right away, as these are all one of a kind items:

Almost in full production in Germany!!

Hi Strap lovers. As many of you know I've been in the middle of a move from Southern California to the Munich area of Germany and have been out of production since the middle of March. Well I can finally announce that I'll be in full production this week. there have been a lot of moving parts to this move and a lot of details to nail down. This trans con move has been quite an Odyssey. I've been running around buying supplies that were too bulky or heavey to fit into my luggage (all the important leather tools and supplies flew on the plane with me ($500 extra weight and baggage fee - ouch!!), unpacking and getting setup and a way that will allow me to be fully functional. I'm off to the store now to pick up a coupler and 6cm flex hose that will allow me to attach my belt sander to my dust collector (critical or my work space and the rest of the work spaces in the building with be enveloped in leather dust!!). My newly purchased belt sander and dremel tool are the only power tools I use in my strap makeing, but ones I can't do without, if I want to get the straps shaped and edged to Dangerous9 standards.

But I'm happy to be here and it's spring time in Bavaria and for Dangerous9straps. Life is good being reunited with my wife and daughter, as we've been separated for some time. For those of you who've been waiting been waiting for your straps for in some cases, many weeks now, I thank you all very much for your patience and your continued support.
