that looks anazing. Great job.  The leather looks like it's from a dog leash. Pretty cool

@Vetryan15 - it's the same leather I use for making dog leashes. It's expensive and dulls my knife blades really quick but it's worth the cost and extra effort.

So pricing now...
If I were to sell it as is, with burnished edges and the stamped accents, I would want $45.
If one wanted a more affordable option, I can leave out the stamped accents and leave the edges unburnished although still rounded off for $30.
Seem fair?

On the first page is a full picture. Damn it looks nice... I dread to think what the shipping would be and I'll never be able to justify out to the significant other.

@CA, the first page has the  full pic.

@Tomas. It definitely looked like the dog leash leather,  it's really heavy duty stuff.  I personally think it's a great deal.

@kicktheotter- based on a previous sling trade from SITH exchange, I think I shipped the sling to Germany for about $12 Canadian currency

Thanks as well Vetryan15, I was going to charge more but I enjoy this community and couldn't bring myself to do it.

So this would be 39 including shipping? If the converter is right anyway. Hmmm... It does look very nice...

What sort of dimensions does it have?

You might indeed but I expect to be quite busy so no guarantee I'll be able to participate.

Now that I see the stitching close up - def. no need for whipping, which would be strictly a matter of aesthetics. I happen to like it but it would take away from your design.  Really nice work!
