Chains, Reins, Leashes, Wallets & Hooks
« on: September 29, 2009, 06:23:14 pm »
hey Giles!

can you tell me about Iron Heart chains? your avatar has the IH bicycle chain, i think.

i am generally not the wallet and chain type, as i cant stand having anything in my pockets. that oxblood wallet and an IH bicycle could change that.

any additional pics?


thx


simon

Simon,  Let me see if I can get some more info for you.  We already do one long chain that is available to special order, but is so damn expensive:

I took the plunge about 12 months ago and ordered an Iron Heart Medium Cordovan wallet.
I ordered it without the chain loop as I'm not one for chains really.
After a 6 week wait it arrived and I must admit I was blown away.
It may be alot of money but it is so beautifully made that I think it will be an heirloom for my 8 year old son.
I have been very lucky enough to visit Giles at his home to try on Iron Heart stuff and have so far purchased a pair of 461 and a IHB-02 but I don't think that's the end of it.
Giles is such a nice bloke that it's almost a pleasure to give him my money!  :-\

I was asked by a customer to take a few photos showing the configuration of the wallet.  These are of the ox-blood wallet, but the black is identical in design:

I have a bunch of these wallets and leather chains on the way from IHHQ.  Until they arrive, I have no better photos though.  Haraki makes these in extremely limited numbers and are made really as extra stuff for his super-dedicated customers.

Pricing
Wallets either size $230
Leather wallet chain $120

They'll both fit width-wise, the long will poke out the top a lot.

Sorry took me so long to reply.  I saw the post come in and then forgot about it.

I can get them anytime, but I took te decision not to stock them as a matter of course.  However, I have a shipment coming every 2 weeks or so, so delay from order-to-satisfaction not too long.  Delivered $165

Here is Haraki's black medium cordovan wallet after a couple of years every day hard use.  Nice...
