The Mill Strap
Made in a very heavy 5.5 mm Solid Leather, 14 inches long and 1,5 inches wide with a 5 inch built up handle and a handy D ring ont he end. This double thickness Strap is just perfect for OTK use and because of the leather’s thickness also has a thud feel to it.Be warned this is a very severe strap.
The name Mill Strap comes from when children worked in the cotton mills of Yorkshire and Lancashire, England, before the child labour laws were made. Any slacking or misbehaviour was dealt with using this or a similar type strap.
All our implements are made from our thick Oak Bark Tanned Harness Leather and in a choice of Rich Tobacco Brown or Black. They are hand-crafted from beginning to end, made with care and attention for the perfect piece. It is bevelled and burnished to a glass-smooth finish, with a saddlers crease around the edge. Not only amazing to use and feel, but beautiful to the eye too.
Although we try to select the perfect piece of leather for our implements, sometimes the leather does have slight blemishes and grain. Also, because this is a natural material, colour may vary slightly from hide to hide. This however, we feel is what adds to its individual natural character.
