    Still taking orders. Cash Money or Trade. If you've got extra gear I bet we can work something out. Or part cash part trade etc...

    See lasts post for latest pictures.


    Over the years I've made some fly wallets for friends for fun and I keep getting people asking for this or that. In the following posts you'll find samples of the work I've done for members of this site.

    Cost of materials plus a little for time and talent. Most are like 7"x4" (when closed) But it's totally custom so I can do whatever you want.

    Materials and Construction: Full grain (not split) cowhide and bull hide. A variety of finishes and colors. High Quality Shearling. Hand punched, hand laced, bonded with Tandy Leather Weld. Horn buttons hand cut, sanded, and polished in my shop.

    Artwork: I’ve been playing with a burning tool for years and it keeps getting funner and I think better. You be the judge.

    Pricing: Anywhere from $65-$160 depending upon size and details of desired image. Each wallet takes between 3.5-6 hours to create froms scratch and cost of Materials is $25 on average.

    Best,

    Rowdy

    You are the Shizzle for real!!! I'll be expecting one to come my way! If you guys don't have one of these they are classic's. The leather is top quality and the construction is second to none. THink of personalized Filson and you got a Rowdy wallet..

    So when you become famous, my "old" wallet will have great collector value because it was one of your earlier ones...right? :thumb:

    HOLY CRAP MAC!!! I will send the funds immediately for the second one...

    Hey guys... this is not a porcelain box for flies.. It is a custom work of art that is a lot more comfortable in the vest pocket...

    support the man... Artists are a rare breed..

    I am honored... Very nice work..
