    A while back Croatoan hit me up and asked if I was interested in doing an interview and having my work put in a magazine........I was honored. As he has bought alot of pieces of my leatherwork, and alot of these mags want free stuff or money for advertizing before they will even think of putting you in their mag. Makes me feel better about doing the whole thing, knowing that someone really liked my work.

    Anyway, here's a link to the online version of the mag, which really has alot of great stuff in it for bushcrafters as well as archers. And you can read the whole mag online for free!!BushcraftUSA even got mentioned! Some of you may see some of your leather pieces in the article.

    Thanks Croatoan for the kind words, and friendship.

    Great article, thanks for not sharing every thing "Skab". That is for sure a great magazine. While I'm not a big time archery guy, that magazine has a lot of bushcraft style stuff in it. Great accomplishment.

    That is great man. Well deserved! You have done great stuff with dead critter skin and deserve the recognition.

    Big props go out to Croatoan as well for being a stand up guy. I don't have a lot of respect for much of the magazine community but there are some good folks amongst those there. Thanks for being who you are Croatoan.

    Congrats again Skab!

    Congratulations, Skab! I enjoyed reading that. I'll say this. I was taught leatherworking in the traditional 'western style' by a man who did it for 50 years. I learned to use all of the stamp tools and swivel knives and filigrees and all of that. I have many good, specialized tools, and I'm more impressed with what you do with so little. After I started seeing your work, I turned away from stamping everything to trying more of the native american/primitive leatherwork. Thanks for inspiring me, man.

    OH and just an FYI, Issuu (the company hosting the digital version of the magazine) has an Android app so you can read this and the other issues on your mobile device.

    That was Refreshing... I gave up hope on Mags and writers way back mostly cause the rehash and SUV Ads but this was a great read and there is no doubt on either the writer here or the subject ( You) have both walked the trail and are the real deal, Proud to know the both of you and to both Keep up the Great work.

    I wanted to bump this, as my wife surprized me and order a couple extras and had them framed. She gave it to me this morning. Didn't have time to take pictures of it, but will do so when I get home this evening.
