ABOUT TETON LEATHER COMPANY AND FRANCESCA
From a young age, Francesca has been fully immersed in the world of knives. Spending time in her Father’s bladesmithing shop, watching his finely tuned skills at work, Francesca developed an eye for detail and appreciation for the art of knife making. At the age of 15, Francesca made her first knife, starting with a bar of steel and a block of wood, she forged and ground her way to a fully functional and aesthetically appealing hunting knife.
Throughout the years Francesca has pushed to develop and refine her art. After marrying her Husband-and now coworker (Zach) in 2013, Francesca and her Husband prepared to welcome their little girl into the world, starting with a knifemaking hiatus in early 2016
"After having Olivia, I knew that most of my time would be in the house with her, but I also had this insatiable artistic itch and that's when I started ordering in leather hides and slowly acquiring tools and practicing on some crazy idea that had popped into my head. It's crazy how many random projects I completely failed on, but more and more often my projects were really coming to life. I spent my free time learning all that I could about leather, and my love for it grew, along with my artistic vision. Creating something unique that can be enjoyed by others is very fulfilling, I pour a piece of myself into every custom project."
Francesca is a full-time Leather Artisan, specializing in custom sheaths, hand dyeing, and commissioned high-end custom projects. She produces a limited batch of knives every year for her collectors & plans to continually expand her artistic repertoire.
It is very well made great leather have used couple times works great every one should have one . Just waiting on you to drop a mini speed goat I want one .
For the price the quality is something else. I spent a pretty penny on a Kangaroo tail strop, it was a beautiful thin piece of leather, with little wooden end grips and hanging hardware. When I opened the MKC leather strop, the look, the feel and smell is something else. The oil infused in the stropping leather was something I was not expecting. My only knock, on the bottom of the stropping leather, there is a wrinkle, (bump) doesn't go away; but who strops all the way to the bottom.
Do yourself a favor, if you're on the fence, just pick it up. If you hate it, gift it, someone will be "REALLY HAPPY."
I never got a chance to use it because I lost it in the Oklahoma wildfires and will have to replace all of my MKC stuff
This is a very nice leather strop. I have purchased a couple of others before buying this one. It is by far the best one of the bunch. It is of very high quality and also has a very cool look to it. Don’t bother with the other ones that are available. Just buy this one from MKC.
High Quality product that will outlive me just like my knives.
