Shoulder Piece Size 12" long by 2 1/4" wide where it will cross your shoulder and tapering to 2" on the tail.
Shoulder Piece Leather Soft and flexible but firm enough to give it some backbone. Hand cut and shaped from a larger piece of vintage English pebble leather.
Shoulder Piece Stitching Artificial sinew hand sewn into my hand punched needle holes.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level Low. The original pebbled surface is visible but has been worn pretty smooth.
Shoulder Piece Notables The carefully cut and shaped strap slots and the matching leather strap guide grip the rein strap tightly. The shoulder piece will not slide on the rein strap without intentional help. Lined with new suede leather on the bottom. The curve shape favors the left shoulder of a right handed player.
Strap Style Hand laced English leather rein. This is one of the very rare longer ones and would accommodate a strap length of at least 60”.
Strap Width About 5/8” across the flat part. 3/4" edge to edge on the lacing.
Strap Leather Extremely nice English leather.
Strap Distressed Level Low with no nicks, cuts, or scars.
Strap Notables The hand lacing is 38” long. When completed some of the lacing will be visible in front of the shoulder piece and some will be visible behind it.
