3 inch Japanese Tosa Inu dog collar tapering down to 2 inch strap to buckle. This piece was done for the Tosa Europe Today Magazine which features an article about how I made this collar, along with some background story. This collar will actually be raffled off by the magazine in their next summer issue. If interested please check out their online magazine for details.
This collar is double saddle maker's leather making it 18 oz, very strong, very durable. The kanji lettering represents strength, and courage, and is shaped, and cut out of separate leather pieces, then tacked on to a metal brass ink leather base that I use. The center piece is a strongly machined O ring with 2 lion heads back to back.
