Nick is one of my absolute favorite leatherworkers - honestly it feels like a massive understatement to say leatherworker when his real title is leather ARTIST. I’ve purchased several pieces from him for special occasions and have always been more than thrilled with the outcome of the piece. He is the kind of artist you can give a loose idea or feeling to and trust that he will knock it out of the park every time. The attention to detail, communication, and the quality of his work keep me coming back again and again. As a maker myself I tend to be hard on other makers/artists when looking at the quality of their work and his is absolutely one of the best. I highly recommend Nick and his work, and will be a lifetime customer.
I had the best experience with Whiskey Bound Leather Co and my husband has the most beautiful briefcase to show for it. First off they set clear expectations for delivery time in the beginning so I knew exactly what I was in for and they delivered. They communicated throughout and let me know when mine was coming up and even sent me photos of the progress which was beyond cool. They included the small and big details that I asked for and then made a masterpiece. Their artistry and skill is unbelievable. I always know to be patient and don’t picture the end product when you order custom and that way you love what you get and aren’t frustrated by the wait and this was a great example. I was blown away by the outcome and the piece in general and it felt like the time flew by. Other makers had way longer wait times and I am loyal to Whiskey Bound Leather Co now because the briefcase is a once in a lifetime piece. My husband loves it, uses it everyday and gets compliments all the time.
If you are looking for a piece that tells a story look no further. I can give Nick a vague idea of what I have in mind and what he comes up with is 1000 times better than you could imagine. This is not your basic tool a piece of leather like the rest business. I’ve had several pieces done, and they are so personal and will be heirlooms I hand down to my kids. The quality and attention to detail is OUTSTANDING! I get a million compliments on my bag, my husband gets tons of compliments on his wallet, and I send everyone I know to WBL. I can’t say enough good things about them!
