Good Idea ! :tu:


Would make a good hat band also.. Or, maybe a wallet !


Not very good for condoms though... The pointy scales would poke holes in them when you put them in the gar skin wallet :(

I've thought about it too. They'd make a tough pair of boots, but I can't figure out how you'd curve the skin much without making the scales stick up. The only way I can figure you'd be able to do it is have a bucket of different sized scales, and fill in the cracks with smaller strips after you'd pieced the bigger pieces together. You could probably call one of the custom book makers in Dallas or Houston and ask what they thought about it. I doubt you'd get a pair made for less than a thousand bucks though, even if you supplied the skin and scales?
