The smell of leather is intoxicating, especially when drinking alcohol out of it. That's why Colorado Workshop is wrapping slabs of leather around their flasks, and hand-making other hide-focused accessories in a former ranch-hand's Loveland garage. Constructed from materials found via meticulously rummaging through Tandy Leather's Factory Store, these wares will make you scream "cowabunga!", then have people continue to hang out with you anyway, just because your accessories are so cool:
1. Flasks: The 8oz steel lifestyle-changers get swathed in full-grain cowhide that's been dyed and coated with an alcohol-resistant finish before being festooned with cowboy themes like a silver-plated horse head, and a crazy bronco rider, also the document which assured that Shannon Sharpe's locker was always filled with super wide ties. But no yellow ones!
2. Knife Cases: Going camping? Going to Colfax after sunset? Then protect your blade with these handsome sheaths held together by commercial-grade nickel rivets. Available large or small, depending on the Dundee-rity of your knife.
3. Money Clips: Available with six different patterns he designs and hand-tools himself, these clips employ "rare earth magnets", can be customized with your initials, and can snugly hold up to 20 bills, in case you're already familiar with the smell of success.
