We always say we build to last and to pass down from generation to generation. We were recently at an engagement party for a dear friend and a relative of his was there. Sixteen (16) years ago I made this wallet for him when I was just starting my leather crafting. I completely forgot about making this until the conversation turned to what we are up to nowadays. He pulls this out of his back pocket and says he wears it everyday since he got it. WOW ! it's seen some use I say, abused but still hanging in there. the owner leads a "interesting life" and it has been there for him. He is/was/maybe a "Green" farmer growing a very lucrative crop in the good ol' USA for a select few to enjoy in the privacy of their own home and this wallet shows the toil of those times. Styles have changed and our materials are now even better but this piece is still going strong.
1956 Trojan Sea Queen purchased 2 years ago and christened "Ringa ding ding!" Looking forward to yachting season!! Cocktail cruising and leisure fishing soon to come.
