    Not sure if he wants prices in the thread, so I'll keep it out of the post but you can PM me for that if you want.

    I got a messenger w/ slant flap, handle, internal pockets - body is made from wicket and craig cowhide, handle/straps are made from horsehide.

    Those would make for some cool mousepads.

    Oh hey, that's a great idea.
    Maybe I should get Scott to make me one next time.

    [​IMG] My bag was just finished, chose not have horsehide for the handles so keep it all the same colour after it gets wear. Not shown is the pocket along the backside to slide a newspaper in. Really happy with how it turned out.
