The seventh leather case added to the Grandfather Collection: The 18" Grandfather Briefcase. Like all designs in the collection, the 18" leather briefcase is a piece of functional art. This case was designed to resemble the old classic briefcases our grandfathers would have carried.
Leather- We only use the toughest leather we can find on our leather bags, and this case is no different. It’s genuine full-grain leather, which means the top layer is still there. The top layer is the strongest layer on the hide and acts the same as shingles on a house.
Lining- The entire inside is lined with pigskin, and believe it or not pigskin is even stronger than cow skin. Plus, it’s soft and smooth so whatever you put inside of it will be protected.
Stitching- When it comes to sewing everything together on this leather briefcase we take no shortcuts. We sew using only 5 stitches per inch. Doing this reduces the number of holes in the leather and the potential for a tear.
The thread we use is a really strong UV-resistant polyester. It’s the same stuff they use to make parachutes and ship sails. If it can hold up to those conditions we are confident it will hold this briefcase together for at least 100 years.
Hardware- All of our hardware is custom surgical grade 316 stainless steel. It is what you want to use if your life depended on it.
The 18” Grandfather Briefcase can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Everyday carry into the office, a display case for a prized collection, or even an adult sized lunch box. Be prepared though… everytime you carry it in public you will get a lot of people staring at you and asking where they can get one too.
