Finally!!! We are finishing up the very last of our backorders, the garden is growing happily and vigorously, and the Jaguar XK120 restoration is progressing along nicely. It's time to reopen the website for orders! I've been doing some changes over the last month or so to the website. Hopefully it flows a bit better and is easier to navigate. I'm pretty happy with the current setup, makes me feel legit! To celebrate, we are offering $10 off any order of $25 or more for one week! Just enter the coupon code TXHeritage at checkout. Thanks so much for all of your support!
With the updated website comes updated product offerings! We have fully embraced our love of all things leather with these new additions. First off, our the Campaign Stool Leather packages that we have been promising for a while now are available for order. These utilize 10oz English Bridle leather and are priced at $175. We are in the middle of a short run in three different colors, Black, Medium Brown, and Burgundy. These should be wrapped up in a few weeks and ready to mail out in early July. See more pics and read more about them here.
Also added to the website are our Leather Drawknife Sheaths. These are available in five sizes ranging from 8" to 12" and are constructed from durable 10oz. English Bridle leather. The leather has been wet formed and hand stitched for the ultimate in protection. Secured with a solid brass snap, these are available in a Standard and Wingtip versions, starting at $65. Read more about them here.
Our next new offering was born from a mild weather incident. A few weeks ago we experienced serious rainfall, flooding my shop for the first time in its almost 70 year existence. I had been cutting leather on the floor the previous night, intending to continue in the morning. I left all of my leather and cutting tools on the floor. Those were under 3" of water the next morning......muddy, hard water. The leather was ruined, stained from exposure to hard water and mud. Once it dried, I knew I had to find a way to use the hide. Being wasteful just rubs me the wrong way. Enter the holdfast pad. I've been using leather pads on my Gramercy holdfasts for years now. They greatly improve the holding power of the holdfast while reducing the chance of damaging your wood. I took the sections of that hide that were salvageable and started cutting. The Leather Holdfast Pads are now available here and are priced at $10/pair, shipping included in the US. International shipping is available, please email me to inquire on shipping rates.
In other news, my lovely wife and I will be in attendance at the Lie Nielsen Open House in a few short weeks. Come see us in beautiful Warren, Maine for some great tools, weather, and lobster! We will have a large assortment of items for sale, as well as friendly conversation for anyone interested!
