    Magnificent video, it captivated me right till the end. The most interesting part was the multiple layers of dye used along the sides of the strap, with what looked like a light sanding using a nail file in between? That's pretty cool, I wouldn't imagine that colour would fade or be visible from a scratch easily.

    Well that was one video where I didn't wish for my time back! Well done.

    Would you mind explaining the pro's and con's of a particular leather type and what you prefer working on.

    Yes, it's a lot of work and i think that is the only way to fight against planned obsolescence.

    Thank you! This is the process of edge finishing and can be done multiple times until de final result is good enough. Yes, i prefer using the nail file instead of a sand paper because i can be more precise (that works better for me)

    Thank you for the kind words! I personally think that it's harder to work with exotic leathers because the skins are more rigid than calf or goat leathers for example. But, the end result is really amazing.
    The harder the process, the more satisfying the result.
