Swapped out the strap to a Hirsch Rivetta, although it has stitching it's an improved look over the brown Dakota. Shopping for that just right black strap today.....or if it grows on me the Rivetta may just stay put
Went for it, had the bits in my junk boxes. Turned out great but still need to polish the case out but it looks great as it is. Had to put a 1mm spacer in it to line up the stem properly and find an appropriate crown. Some movement holder grinding and there we have it Stowanstien in all it's beauty. Shopping for a nice black strap for it tomorrow to finis it off, no white stitching though.
One of my better projects.
Please let me know what you think folks!
