    private message . Thanks for looking Bri ( Oh if anyone thinks these are inappropriate on this site please feel free to remove the post)[IMG][/IMG]

    How cool would they look with a "Quentin" logo on them?

    I should have put this on the original post - All the tankards are made from 4 mm veg-tan leather, hand sewn with Tiger thread, dipped in hot beeswax and the inner sealed with brewers pitch each tankard is water tested for 24 hrs ( for my own piece of mind) and should hold a full pint including the head ( I was told off by stout drinkers who where loosing their head !! ) they take three days to make but a lot of that is drying time, price will depend on how much embossing you require.
    Hope this helps Bri

    Tanks for asking Sir, I usually charge 40 plus p+p for a tankard similar to the ones above but that's not always the case, the
    Price would depend on what you want embossing on it, but as a guide a plain tankard would cost 30 plus p+p and an average embossed one 40 plus p+p the most I have ever charged
    was 55 and that was for a rather awkward coat of arms, but there are always exceptions - I was asked to do a group buy of 10 tankards for Northern Soul Bushcrafters with their logo
    and users names embossed on each one, I think I charged 26 each but that was over three years ago .


    Many thanks Bri

    FWIW -
    I've seen & handled these tankards. They are well made & "cool" looking. An Xmas present for the paddler who has everything? He does other leather made articles too.
    And no - I'm not on commission or hope to get anything for placing this entry
