Here's a couple from this week on my Bali Ha'i.

The black stitch is from part of a military equipment pouch that had lots of holes from seams and d-rings, etc. I just couldn't toss it so I made it into a strap.

the white-stitch is from an ammo pouch.

Times, the straps are really hip. I like them both and am partial to the one with the white stitches thoughThumbsup3.gif

Here's one I just finished from an old ammunition pouch.
Very comfortable on the Moray.

I like this last one a lot better than the tan/lighter one. The tan just seemed too prim and propersubtlelaugh.gif, whereas the darker one just hits the bullseye.

Any exotics?

Yeah, my I've been feeling the same, plus the "rougher" straps are more enjoyable to make in a different way, more creative, I guess.I have some alligator here to use, and some lizard, will be working on those soon.

Looks ok, too. But maybe the strap would benefit if you had run the stitch all the way through the end of the tail of the long end. That knife point would be more noticeable, IMHO.

Show me the exotics soonbravo.gif

I've been trying to use mainly the existing holes in the leather, so I left the knife-edge unstitched...I kinda like it this way!
