Man, you are getting really good! This Strap looks great! Is that some sort of design on the backside of the keeper?

Really inspiring.

Makes me want to make my own straps too.

What are the tools you require?

See post 18 above. I grabbed United’s edge paint and a mesh roller to apply it. I’m using .45mm thread on 3mm Wuta irons now, and grabbed some Seiwa 4mm chisels for bigger stitching (.55 or .65mm).

Using some lizard and edge paint. Need more practice, but I’ll wear it.
