Handmade Camera Strap Titanium Gray Grey Hand Knotted with Leather Trim.

I've been a professional photographer for the past 30 years, I know exactly the sort of strap I needed/wanted. So I've spent months testing materials and making prototypes. I'm an ex sailor in the merchant navy (marine), I remember my knots, so it's natural that my strap would be hand knotted and spliced.

The cord is military grade, made in the US. It's very strong, a single strand will hold over 600 pounds. For added security the ends are spliced to form a loop, where a stainless steel split ring connects to the camera.

I've used a leather tube to protect the camera from rubbing against the split ring. The loose ends are finished with a Celtic knot for luck and love. The strap initially feels a little stiff, like a new pair of jeans, but with use it will relax and become the most comfortable material in the hand. The strap feels great and because it's cylindrical it rolls instead of digging in. The total length is about 41 inches, which suits most people.

The strap for sale here is Gray Grey. Other colours are black, khaki, red, and olive. Please see my other shop listings.

Each strap is unique and made to order and takes around 3 days to complete.

There are more details and a video about the strap on my blog:
