Absolutely love the bag - it looks even better in real life! High quality materials and construction. Have recommended to all of my friends.
As you wold expect the shell bag is amazing artistry in leather. The Arapaima (fish skin) veneer is very exotic and a beautiful look. The only thing about Arapaima (which I was not familiar with) is that it is not as durable compared to the other Birdstrap leathers offered, but it is undeniably gorgeous. Just don’t sit on the bag in your car or on a bench, it will scuff up and break down the raised portion of the skin. The non-arapaima core leather and stitching is "bullet proof" and beautiful on its own.
This new shell pouch and belt have elicited a number of admiring comments. It is almost too striking and unique, to the extent that one could almost overlook the exceptional craftsmanship and care that has obviously gone into the construction of this pouch and belt. Yes, we still have committed Craftsmen in this country. CFF
