    My new Wyvern Leathworks Sporran.

    Greetings,

    Looked around at all the merchants and could not exactly find the day sporran that I really wanted. I notices several here have mentioned Donnie at Wyvern Leatherworks and visited his website. One specific sporran grabbed my eye, contacted Donnie and after a few months of saving up, was able to have Donnie make me one. Thought I would share it, as I think its a work of art, and Donnie is so talented. I hope you looking at it as much as I will wearing it....Thank you Donnie. Just ordered another one, Rob Roy, Stingray, very primitive and very excited to get this one too. Love his work and attention to fine details.

    Donnie really does great stuff. I have a new Rob Roy sporran on order myself. I'll be sure to post pics when it arrives.

    Wonderful work! Par for the course with Donnie.

    It reminds me of a black sporran he made for me a while back. I already have a brown one, wanted one in black, and he created a masterpiece.

    Yours is a little nicer than mine, because brown leather shows its character better. I hope you'll wear it a lot! In ten years, it will improve, impossible as that seems.

    Congratulations on a great choice!

    Best,
    Patrick

    Thank you for the kind words, I just love the look, style, and craftsmanship of Donnie. Most of my sporrans are the typical ones that you buy on line, I really wanted something special. Cheers.

    Very nice, of his custom options that one would be my favourite, I particularly like the extra detail of the small metal pins in the leather.

    Indeed a beautiful sporran. I have one of his Rob Roy models, much more simple, and this is giving me sporran envy!! Congrats!
