Horse-hide definitely does not look as good as some other
hides used for gun leather. For all its nice properties,
horse-hide looks so much like plastic.

I guess shark-skin is attractive and tough.

What hide do you think makes the most attractive gun leather?

thanks

Asking this question strikes me a bit like asking a waiter for his or her opinion of the best entree on a menu. I never understood why someone would do that- it is personal taste. I like stingray, not fond of ostrich, but there are many willing to spend $800 for ostrich boots. You get the picture.

Well ... I'm sure liverwurst or Haggas would not get many votes
if that similar question is asked of a waiter. I sometimes ask
a waiter "What entree is your favorite". Then, it's not
so ambiguous. If she always says that the daily special is
her personal favorite, I take that suggestion with a grain of salt, but if
her eyes sparkle and she suggests with genuine gusto a
particular dish, I'm tempted to try her suggestion.
