We feel like we’ve designed the strongest, coolest, and most eye-catching leather case in the world. It’s like a nice leather briefcase your grandfather would have carried that you just don’t see anymore. We went classic on the Grandfather Collection. Like they used to make them, but better.
The 10” Grandfather Case, like all of our leather pieces, is over-engineered. We only use the toughest materials: full-grain leather, strong pigskin lining, and premium UV-resistant marine-grade polyester thread (the stuff they use on ship sails). The bottom of the hard case is lined with durable and smooth pigskin, which is even tougher than our leather. Constructed by hand every step of the way, all corners are reinforced with hand-hammered rivets. The hinge is made completely of leather - it will never rust or break. Sturdy carrying handle on top lays flat when not in use.
Leather - We only use full-grain leather, which is the strongest and most resistant cow leather you can find. It’s called “full-grain” because none of the leather is shaved off. The full toughest top layer is still there. That’s why it’s so thick and strong.
Lining - It’s designed with no breakable parts like buttons or snaps. To add even more durability, the inside is lined with pigskin, which is even tougher than cowskin, instead of being lined with some brittle fabric with flowers on it that rips and tears with minimal use.
Thread - Everything is sewn together with the strongest thread we can get, marine-grade polyester. It's the same stuff sail makers use on boat sails, and those things take a beating from high winds everytime they’re used. It’s much better than using the typical nylon thread because it never decomposes, so it’ll hold the case together forever.
Hardware - When it comes to over-engineering, our hardware takes the “Excessive Award.” We only use 316 stainless steel so it will never rust. If you could load 750 lbs. in the case our hardware wouldn't break. There’s no other case out there like ours.
This case was designed with the intent to be a small camera case when we travel for product videos and photos. We soon realized that it could be used for far more: organize your jewelry or keepsakes, use it as a range case to show off your prized pistol, pilots can use it as a headset case, or give it to your kid and they'll have one of the coolest (and most expensive) lunch boxes at school.
