OMG Leather Works is run by long time friend of the Spirko family and show supporter Jeff Dheere. Jeff is one of those guys that can do 100 different things but his real passion is working with leather.
Last year I got to a point where I was blatantly sick and effing tired of shitty dog collars. So I went to several pet stores (big ones like PetSmart and smaller family ones) to get all three dogs, new collars. I was at the point that I didn’t care what they cost, I was tired of spending 20-30 bucks for shit that was frayed and stinking in 3-6 months.
Max my big old German Sheppard had an old (like 10 year old) heavy leather collar. It was still okay but had seen better days, so I figured I would buy something like that for him along with similar ones for Charlie and Lucy. Well a decade changes a lot of things! To be blunt everything I found was complete total garbage. Chinese made total shit. No matter what I was willing to pay, quality just wasn’t an option.
So when Jeff taught at my spring workshop on leather making I explained my situation, he quoted me a price and he made me the three collars below. These were custom made, to spec, per dog and not that much more in cost than the best you can buy in a store. Except these were all bad ass, custom engraved, and will last 10 years, more if you treat them with oil, say once every six months. Conversely most store bought collars today are lucky to make 1-2 years maximum. And again they stink to high heaven in about 6 months.
The one with the spikes was for Charlie, seemed like a good idea at the time but in the end with our Granddaughter climbing on him all the time I decided to make it a “show collar” (Check Charlie Out He Looks Great In It). I was worried my little gal would get hurt by the spikes, so Jeff was hired to build a more practical one. This one below was the result and it is now part of Charlie’s EDC, the spikes come out for the fun of it once in a while still.
Much as Patrick Roehrman of MT Knives, has become my personal knife maker I now consider Jeff Dheere my personal leather crafter. If I need anything I am going to him and either buying off the shelf or getting him to make me specifically what I need.
