    Thanks :)

    For a moment there I thought you meant the leather was edgy LOL :) but then I realized you meant the buckles. The buckles are rounded (some more than others) and when worn one would rarely notice the buckle "digging in".

    You have to be kidding me. Look at the seam on the keeper. Almost non-existent. I like that stitching a lot too!

    Nice stuff!

    This strap is "dyed" with coffee. Doesn't smell like coffee though... it is quite soft as coffee does not stiffen the leather same way as alcohol based dyes do.

    Cool tidbit of information. Does that apply to water based dyes in general?

    It should apply to all water based (sugar free) dyes :)
