    Your strap should get there soon, eh?
    I hope so Chris, I'm getting him to age it for me so it will take a little longer but it should be here soon

    Phill , I know this guy has aged the strap but its not quite right, the edges need to be taken down, they are too frayed, the best way to do this is take a lighter and carefully go along the edges burning the leather frays back a bit, they need to look a little darker and less "newly done", when youve done that rub the edges along the palm of a sweaty and grubby hand, the natural oils in your skin will give it that older look
