American Bison……we all grew up calling them Buffalo (we still do). Bison has a beautiful grain effect that is distinctly different from other leather. The “Rough & Ready” has had wax applied and then it it is “plated” with a heated press. This creates a beautiful light “pull-up” look, that is so popular in leather goods today. Bison are “Beasts”, they love to “mix it up” with other Bison and they go wherever they want. They pick up “Range” marks on the way and these sides will have marks here and there.
