Black Beauty, the story begins….

Oh English leather, how do I love thee?

And no, I’m not talking about the cologne for men. Although that is kinda sexy too, on the right guy…

Leather hides imported from England are things of rare beauty- so soft, so un-marred, so…blank. I horde the English hides I have, taking them out only for special occasions. The Jubilee party we had was AMAZING.

oh hey-look, pictures!


the small barrel Chuck Smith swivel knife with a carbide tip is perfect for this!
At the start, its all moist hides and high quality knives.

Look at those adorable teeth. Also notice the awesome Chuck Smith swivel knife with a carbide tip!

Now most of the images of the Black Beauty mount are kind of…lacking in serious skull detail. Except that hard core one with all the welding sparks. Thats just fierce! Again with the Chuck Smith swivel knife, I know, I know. My leatherworking tools are the only thing I’m a brand whore about, so…that makes it all better.
mmmmmm....brand whore for sharp things, and I don't mean heels!

Now the skull does need a lot of detail cutting- I’m going to have to pull a SVP memoir from a few years ago to help flesh out…er, I mean bone out? That sounds really inappropriate.

Where was I. Oh yeah,
Goodnight!
