Strap Width 5/8"
Strap Leather Butter soft, top shelf vintage harness leather. Skived slightly to level out the thickness to 3/16”. Original hand dressed and burnished top edges. I also dressed and burnished the new bottom edges and slicked the back side smooth.
Strap Distressed Level Medium with a complexion mirroring the shoulder piece. No cuts, nicks, or battle scars – just a handsome, age darkened western rein strap with a beautiful vintage character acquired in a long previous life riding the range..
Strap Notables The rein strap is locked snug in the carefully cut and shaped strap slots and the strap guide fits it tight. Once adjusted for position the shoulder piece will not move without intentional help.
