Custom Brooks B-17

This saddle started out life as an ordinary Brooks B-17, it belongs to Dirty Kop and was customized by Minneapolis' own Anthony K.

This is Anthony's fourth or fifth saddle and with each one he continues to improve by leaps and bounds. This is the first time he's done an asymmetrical design and it is in my opinion his best to date by a wide margin.
He has the rider break in the saddle to soften the leather then he cuts, chamfers, and chisels out the design. The color is some sort of permanent stain, not paint.

dig the very nicely done sides and well executed chamfers

by far the coolest looking B-17 that I have ever seen
