About two months ago I was looking on Etsy for a set of wrist cuffs. What strongman doesn't have wrist cuffs, right? Anyway, I stumbled upon Eastern Oregon Leather Co. and seeing as they had quite the selection on Etsy, I jumped on to their website. All I can say is wow! If it's made of leather and looks cool, Shane at Eastern Oregon can make it! I called up and placed an order with Shane. Talk about service! The shop owner takes the time to get on the phone, discuss exactly what i want and then goes to create it. About two weeks later my wrist cuffs arrived. They were beautiful! So nice and well made, that a few weeks after that I ordered a second pair. Only this time I wanted something custom made. I took a pre-existing idea from a cuff he had already made and explained to Shane what modifications I was looking for...again, he actually takes the time to talk to his customers! His response: "Of course I can do that". And he did. Two weeks later I get an email from him saying that the cuffs have shipped...and by the way, there's now a 'Realman Gauntlet' on the site! And as expected, the cuffs are amazing!!!
Not only am I happy that I support a fantastic small business who's craftsmanship, customer service and designs are second to none, I now have a signature gauntlet!
