A few leather knife rolls available

ImageImage

So I’ve now started treatment, and things are going pretty well!  I will be periodically adding stuff to my shop that is already made and ready to ship.  Basically, I will be in the shop here and there and since I can’t really commit to making things to order, this will be the only way to get stuff for probably the next few months.  These will be sort of “special” stuff, using different leathers and trying to make some interesting, more unique pieces available.  I will do my best to add new stuff every two weeks or so, mostly small knife rolls and probably some wallets.  

To start it off, I’ve been trying out this tumbled cowhide over the last couple months, and I’ve sort of fallen in love.  It is super thick, yet super soft with a distinctive pebble grain.  I’ve got brown and black, just a couple rolls of each color available.  The brown has a strap made of dark brown horween chromexcel, and the black rolls strap is made of heavy duty oil tanned cowhide.  Makes a hell of a knife roll!  These are available for $119 each, and have the same set up as my normal small roll, except that the black ones actually have an extra inch of overall width, and slightly roomier pockets.  They will be available later today at jawleathergoods.com/shop.  Feel free to email me at jawleathergoods@gmail.com with any questions!  Also, keep your eyes peeled for other cool stuff, I’ll do my best to keep it interesting.  

Help support me through my cancer treatments!  Thanks so much to everyone who has sent kind and encouraging emails, you all rock!

Just because I never actually photograph black rolls when I make them, and seem to get asked for photos of them, I will go ahead and post this. Next one I make will be fully photographed and added to my shop! Feel free to email me with questions at jawleathergoods@gmail.com

Horsehide knife roll

One of the things that I like most about leather is how many different types there are.  There are literally hundreds of different ways to achieve a preserved hide, and this allows the maker to (occasionally) have a field day trying out different leathers for different purposes. Recently I got my hands on some front quarter horsehide from Horween tannery.

Horsehide is fascinating because it falls into three distinct, and very different categories.  You have Shell cordovan, which comes from the butt and is very very dense, yet still very pliable making it excellent for shoes and assorted small leather goods like wallets and card holders.  Above the Cordovan, the hip section is a long narrow piece that is thicker than the Shells, yet not as dense.  It is a completely different leather but is fantastic for boots, wallets, even small bags.  Now when you get above the hip section of the horse, you get the “front quarters,” which are much lighter in weight, and are extremely soft and supple making it perfect leather for jackets, since it is stronger than cowhide of equal weight.   It is truly beautiful leather, and perfect for an all leather knife roll, which is something I’ve had on the back burner for a while now.

It’s not clear whether I will continue to make these, it really depends on the demand.  Let me know what you all think, and shoot me an email if you are interested in one of these.  They will be very limited for now, so swoop one up while you can!

Im working on some other new stuff as well, hoping to fill some gaps in my product line:
