Stingray clad Harness
 
Hey GPF
This Harness was made for a shorty bull.The construction is 100% leather-then hand stiched Stingray on top.Each will be made to order only,and there are many color variations to choose from.Time to complete is 7 day's.May take longer if the skin has to be special ordered.
Stingray skin is covered in teeth and sanded down to give a briliant shine.Very tought to cut,but well worth the final result.
All questions and comment's are welcome.
Thank you,
Henry

Wow.
It's beautiful.
Out of sheer curiosity, what's the ballpark price for something like this?

Wow! Seems interesting!

Hey Aczdreign
Thank you for looking.This work took almost a week,but I'm very happy with the result.
This is the Ivory Stingray,and it sold for $280.They will also be made in Black-Blue-Red and other colors.
Thank you,
Henry

Hey ThaLadyPit
You bet it is,and it has a great feel to it when you run your hand over it.I will start making other's and also do them for the Collars and cell phone's.
Thank you,
Henry

280 isnt bad at all for what I'm seeing.
Give my pup some time to grow and we'll talk. ;)

Hey Elvisfink
Thank you very much.I have been wanting to work with Stingray for a bit,and had my chance to make one up.I will follow this up with collars and cell cases clad in Stingray also.
Thank you,
Henry

Hey Henry,
What’s the durability of Stingray? Is it tough or is it relatively delicate? Just curious if its function hide or is it just for show? Either way it is cool looking.

Hey Elvisfink
Stingray is way stronger than leather cut to the same size.I cut a small piece and was trying to rip it in half--did not snap.It was used as sandpaper in day's gone past,and is still used to wrap samurai sword's.
Cutting through the skin is like cutting stone-
Thank you,
Henry

Henry, you are craftsman and apparently love doing what you do, a tough combo to beat! I am going to assume that the stingray hide is darn near impervious to water?

leatherman-cowboy 07-29-2010 01:03 AM

Hey Saint Francis
Thank you for your word's.It does help that I love what i do,lol.I would not soak any skin that has been tanned,but the up keep of the Stingray is very easy-wipe it with a damp cloth and mild soap.
This stuff was tough to punch throug,and dulled my tool's and scissor.
Thank you,
Henry
