Stählemühle open day 2014

Luckily we made our reservation for this great event way in advance. Only every two years you have the chance to visit this great place of Spirits. Just the images tell enough to say it was a perfect event with superb presentation of the Stählemühle by Christoph Keller in Eigeltingen-Münchhöf and his team.

A glimpse into the vintage crypt of Red Wing Frankfurt

Yesterday I had the chance to get a glimpse into the vintage crypt of the oldest Red Wing store in Europe. Kami Hashemi the owner took the time at the Munson Ranger 8012 release party to guide me trough his personal Red Wing Collection. Some of the oldest Charles Beckmans, Pecos, Moc-Toes and Frankfurter are lined up there. Another personal highlight was to have a look of a Red Wing Catalogue dated back to 1949. The new Munson Ranger is amazing I can tell, but for more on that head over to Life Time Gear he will post soon.

Impressions Bread & Butter Summer 2014

I attended with Feinschmuck the Bread & Butter Summer 2014 and was part of the Amtraq Dist. stand in the Fire Department area. A great event with so many good brands. Unfortunately I did not have the time to wander around and take more images. Here just a quick glimpse into some of the brands I was close to or really caught my eye.

Another hand sewn Leather Tote Bag

I just finished a improved version of my leather tote bag. First of all the leather is a bit darker and has even more character. Then I extended the length of the straps a bit. The major change went trough the inner pocket. It is now out of the same material as the other bag. I added 2 loops to hold a pen and a bigger Mont Blanc pen or Kaweco (or a mini maglite) and as well a pocket for a small knife.

Thanks to my friends of Passion France to equip me with some of the nicest pocket knifes France has to offer. Not only can I offer the Douk Douk or a Sujet various knifes from Theirs, Laguiole and St-Martin are on stock now. 

On the 2nd last image you see a scar on the hide. I did choose to not hide it or cut around it. Leather is a natural material which should be treated with respect and care. The scar adds character to the bag and let us memorize that it was actually from a living creature which has its life and accidents. (since the scar is hardly a fraction of a millimeter deep, rather just on the surface, it won´t seriously harm the strength of the bag).
