I hadn't started out that way but a fellow with whom I work bought one from me for $ I couldn't turn down... Apparently there's only one other Zulu that's widely available in this leather and they ask around $100 for them. My coworker offered $60 for me to make him one so I did.
Dunno. Maybe. It's the leather they're made from. Expensive stuff. I'm inclined to set the price about there for the Horween leather and offer a cheaper price on a version made from more economical leather
