Not been over-productive lately, but at least managed to make these two 24mm.
First a honey-tanned rich leather, with black waxed thread.
The leather has been treated with bear fat (yes really:0) after I was finished with it, that leaves a ultra soft and oilish leather, and a honey brown colour. And no, it does not smell of bear, hehe. But maybe I need to take extra care when out in the woods wearing it?






Next a strap made of a pair of old non-issued Norwegian combat boots (M-77) with waxed thread. The tread took up a little TO much of the wax, so it will be more withish over time as the wax wear of a bit.



As seen on the sides of this one, there is no coating to the sides but a rough edge, and that´s the way I wanted it as it looks nice with the contrasting black and grey leather imo. And thinking of mounting it on my Sea Devil, so that´s why the Benarus buckle:0)

Looks very good, Bro. These straps look much better than your very first attempt many, many months agobamby.gifbamby.gifbamby.gif

I like the tan one much more. Have you tried a light tan with black stitches for your Emperor? They should be awesomeThumbsup3.gif

Thank you very much Jeff! Much appreciated. And yes, the skills have improved somewhat since the last ones I posted here, haha. And still learning and improving. Have quite a way till I`m at par with the rest of the strap makers here at 3T, but one step at the time.

I too like the tan one the best:0)
Have a similar tan one in 22mm, and have tried it on the Emperor as with many other leather straps. But can`t seem to like it on leather that much actually. It`s mesh or zulus for me on the Emperor.
