Have you ever wanted to meet Ryan? In the coming weeks we'll be announcing some dates where you'll be able to meet up with R.T.Anvil! He'll be in New York, and Las Vegas at different times in the next few months, and he always wants to meet the fine folks that are kind enough to support Anvil Customs. Now on the odd chance that you're interested in meeting the whole crew, i.e. Ryan, Mike, and myself (Nathen) you can do that pretty much every First Friday here in Springfield MO. As you may or may not know, our shop on the square here is primarily a workshop, which means we don't open to the general public because we're in here working hard on all these leather wallets and belts that get ordered, but during special events we often open our doors and let people browse the few items we have ready. Now, if you're riding your bike through town, or just want to swing by the shop we're happy to have the visit, just make sure you give us a heads up that you're going to stop by so we can let you in! We look forward to meeting you all!
If you do your research you will find hundreds of websites that sell mass produced thin leather wallets from Asia that really don't have that "special" quality about them. Plus they're basically designed to fall apart in a year or two, so that's right out. No no, you want something that is unique, nicely crafted and built to last don't you? That's the type of gift that really makes a statement.
Knowing your tools and materials, making stuff with your hands, and doing it to make something that will last a long, long time are all fundamental facets of the leatherwork we do. Our wallets, belts, and various other products are crafted with care so that while you might spend more on one made by us, you're not going to have to buy a new one in a year or two because it wore out... but you might want to just because of how awesome they are.
As a continuation of our "Way Too Early" Gift guide for 2019 we'll be covering a few more ideas that we think will make a great gift for your loved ones. In this section we'll be covering some of the more luxurious leather offerings we have available for the person in your life who really deserves the top shelf gift.
