1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hi all,

    This is a custom order for a very kind gentlemen who has allowed me to post pictures up on the classifieds. As this piece is already sold, orders will be for a custom piece which will take 2~3 weeks to complete.

    Shipping is included in the price and it will be shipped through registered mail taking 4 ~ 12 days depending on location!

    If you have any specific needs, do contact me as i welcome custom orders for any small leather goods.

    Hi ThinkDerm,

    The sides are sanded, dyed, waxed and burnished. After that, an edge dressing is applied to seal the edges. All the items posted are hand-stitched actually (i do try to get them as neat as possible)! [​IMG]

    They are finished edges. Raw edges do not wear well and i never leave my edges raw.

    For the edges, they are sanded, burnished with wax and dyed. Then, a resin based edge ink is applied to seal the edges and to give it a smooth finish, this is unlike those that are soft/rubbery and they will not peel off.
