Features:

Status Available
Shoulder Piece Size 8” long by 2 3/8" wide.
Shoulder Piece Leather Older western harness leather – the good stuff. Thick, well broken in, and super supple.
Shoulder Piece Stitching Artificial sinew hand sewn into hand punched needle holes. The stitching goes around the full circumference of the shoulder piece. Oiled leather buckstitching worked thru hand punched diagonal slits - then thoroughly hand rubbed it to give it an aged patina.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level Medium/high. Showing plenty of vintage character but it wouldn’t embarass a fresh custom built instrument.
Shoulder Piece Notables No strap slots. The two strap guides, made from small skived sections cut off the rein strap, hold the shoulder piece securely in place. This allows the full bottom area to contact your shoulder to support the load. Fully dressed and burnished edges and lined wall to wall with new suede leather on the bottom.
Strap Style Western Rein
Strap Width 5/8"
Strap Leather Old and well used harness leather with color shading and surface checking. I skived it just enough to level out the thickness to a solid 3/16”, re-dressed the bottom edges, and slicked it smooth.
Strap Distressed Level Medium/high.
Strap Notables Includes a custom finish for length and attachment points specified by the buyer.
