Thumbs up My B-day Gift - Stingray Wallet!

My brother Nate made me a really cool wallet out of stingray leather for my birthday and I thought you all might like to see it.

The white marking is the bony center of the stingray hide. Stingray leather is super tough so this wallet should last me a very long time. He made the inside out of pigskin which also very durable but thin enough so the wallet is not too bulky.

Needless to say... I like this a lot!

Here are some photos:

Thanks! He is actually already in the business. As you know, he makes a lot of pen sleeves but he also gets a lot of custom orders (gun holsters, belts, wallets, journals, horse tack, etc).

Excellent tooling on your wallet! It so neat to have a custom made piece by your brother! Nate is a pro!

Have a local buddy that does high end leather work. I know how hard it is to work with stingray... You owe your brother one ;)

My wife has a stingray belt with matching 1911 holster. (pictured)
