Early production Dangerous9straps
Hi strap lovers. Like most production business, we have some old stock and early production items hanging around. in our case these straps tend to be straps that I build early in my strap making career that or some prototypes or items that have been returned for whatever reason or were never sold and are in a small pile taking up space. These straps are (luckily very few in number) for sale and upon request, I can provide a link to a slideshow where you can take a look. One of those straps is featured here. These photos sent by my good customer Dave of his great looking Paul Smith Automatic paired with a vegetable leather strap in Marine Cordovan with Ecru linen stitching. It's a pretty rustic strap when compared with straps I'm making today, this strap was from 2010 and was probably among the first 50 straps I ever made. But a 4mm + thickness of vegetable tanned leather and stitched with monster 7 ply waxed Irish linen thread, it will last for ever and will look pretty good while doing it. Thanks Dave for the great photos!
