I will give you all the leather I have if you save this.
I struggle with it as well M, but I know this will sit in my basement unused and become powder.

I see it as a re-purposing of history. This bag was destine for the trash until I saved it, now it will have renewed life with people that can enjoy a piece of history on their wrists for years to come.
Perhaps better that way, unused would be a shame.

You are probably right- amazing piece
"Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black."

I dissected it today, next step is to hit it with some hide rejuvenator and then make a test strap.

Stay tuned...

Travel roll/pouch would be cool as well. This bag will get to live a new life.
