Laced reins, black leather

A nice pair of laced reins, made of black Sedgwick leather. They're longer than standard ones (traditionally made 55" long) and 5/8" wide.
For the lacing work I've used the same leather, conveniently splitted and cut 1/4" wide. Stainless steel buckles, buckle bit billets.

A hazel set

1 m long "rein leash" and padded collar both made in hazel Sedgwick leather forn a japanese friend living in Australia... it'f the first time I do "arrive" so far!

This collar looks quite close to this one, with brass instead of stainless steel: made out from a 3/4" strip, padded with neoprene lined in soft but tough panel hide. I moved the dee in a safer position, closer to the buckle,  so buckle will never press against dog's throat...Rein leash finally found its ideal length: first prototype was 1.5 m long, too much for urban use.

Black and stainless steel rolled collar

Here it is, probably the best looking collar I've ever made. Brother of this one, only a little longer. 3/4" wide leather strip, stainless steel fittings.
