This is a little awkward, and confusing...

Are you sure that wallet is from Corter?

The concho is definitely one of his, but the detailing and the stitching look like mine.

I could certainly be wrong, but I think I made that.

Eric? Thoughts?

Edit: After checking my flickr, I think it's this one here:

Were you the original buyer?

Fact. I have owned 2 Corter pieces and that one is defiantly NOT Corter's stitching...

I applied some Pecard's to a used Skull wallet recently, and I'm finding that the leather didn't take to it as well as I thought. Is using a blow dryer a good idea?

I didn't think it looked like corter either when I bought it but the guy that I bought it from assured me that it was, none the less it's a great wallet

From my knowledge, maybe I am wrong, but I thought using direct heat on leather is a bad idea.

yea, that piece isn't mine, I don't use a diamond awl. The concho is though.

Super rare 1 of 1 Hollows x Corter? Even the makers didn't know they were collaborating

Does anyone know of any affordable manufacturer of custom leather stamps? Something between 1/2-1 inch wide. I'm going to make some items for friends and it would be cool to put my own logo on it.

Time to retire my keychain and make another. This one started out as natural veg tanned cowhide.

This isn't all leather, but I thought this would be a nice place to post this. Here is my Swiss rucksack (?) that I have been using for the last 4 or so years. When I bought it the straps were completely black and wouldn't bend at all. I treated the leather once with Skidmore's and the leather has been strong and supple ever since.

I really like the construction on the shoulder straps:p><p>And every piece of leather that is attached to the canvas is also backed by another piece of leather. <img src=Picture 563 by ray.wendolowski, on Flickr[/img]

If you see one of these on ebay, snatch it up. They are super strong and very useful.

Hey guys, I'm new to leather goods and I love how beautiful leather can look with use.

Can anyone recommend a cheap (under $50?) Natural color leather wallet, similar to the Tanner Goods one that I can age? Thanks!

Dang, that's really nice patina to the leather. great find. what's the brand so I can scout ebay. thanks.

There's no brand to search for, but if you search for Swiss Pack or Swiss bag, etc. you should be able to find some.
