That looks great.

Could the leather be softened in anyway which may make it more comfortable on the wrist?

you could always convert it into a standard strap for spring bars, that would work IMO

Not really its too thick , when it goes through the lug pins it is not flexible wnough so sits all wrong I think softening it wont really change much. I do have some thinner leather so will try that next

I think I would give the strap a number of whacks with a small hammer with the intention being to make it less thick and more supple.

That said I was never at the head of the queue when they were handing out practical brain cells. Rolling Eyes

Bruce's idea is definitely the wiser option. Very Happy
