The hide is fabulous. A dark navy tone, though it can look black in some lights the sparkly glints of the finish lift the colour and bring the lovely butterflies-wing sheen through.
Gently softened with natural movement in the scales, its been used carefully and is just at that stage where the leathers nicely softened but displays no real wear.
One, extremely light, fingernail scuff to the lower RH front, only just visible if you angle the bag away from you to view, the corners are excellent, all stitching and inking, (edge sealent) intact.
The hand carved scales will inherently slightly lift at the edges with use, which gives the depth and texture to the finish, but there is no detriment, no missing or curled scales and even the rolled top handles are excellent.
A rich leather aroma, there's a useful front pocket with black suede lined interior flap, sealing with the fabulous Turtle turnlock.
Hardware is excellent with just light friction rubs and scratches to the underside of the top plate and base plate.
Lined in clean, black Mulberry Tree repeat fabric with a side zipped pocket and leather trimmed slip pocket.
