Charlie - zonta leather - thoughts? do you use this italian leather ever?

Missed this!

Not familiar with them, we tend to do our leather buying in France, my feeling is the leather quality can be better, though of course its much more tannery than country based. Always happy to work with any interesting leather if it can be sourced though

Theres a few good photos of the Annonay stuff here - happy to send samples though. We are getting quite low on some of them, but we havent run out of any quite yet

Charlie,
On which of the annonays are you runnind dangerously low on? I was looking at a couple of them, all of which are not going to be made on the damascus buckles.

Probably the No 18 and No 22 are lowest, nothing totally out of stock though

How does the "Fillis" buckle look when closed? Does it make a lot of bulge? How does it compare to the "West End"? I didn't find any pictures.

The Filis is a straighter buckle than the West End, it isn't designed to curve around the waist like the West End does. I wouldn't say it makes a bulge, but it is less figure hugging. It's a nice buckle, we use authentic stirrup buckles for it so if your looking for something a bit different or something that reflects our saddlery background it's a good choice. The Brass versions of the buckle are slightly more slimline than the stainless steel and are my own choice

I don't think we have any photos of a Fillis being worn unfortunately but maybe some one here does? There are a lot of them flaring around the forum!

I hope that's some help!

Hi Guys,

Good news - we have a batch of the Damascus buckles in the country making their way through customs. First dibs to people who've already put their name down, second dibs to SF members if there are some left. Watch this space! This is the first batch we've been able to get fopr a long time, we have them made in Japan by a very good knife maker who is very very busy and so very very slow..



For the Baranil lovers, quick photo from last week..
