This eyepatch would look great when worn with a Pirate Tricorn Hat, but it is more then just a 'dressing up' item.

I am registered blind and only have a little vision in one eye. My totally blind eye is in constant danger of being knocked or poked when I am out and about. I usually wear a pair of strong wrap-around sunnies to protect it but had the idea that a moulded leather patch might do the job better.

I did a bit of research and came up with a simple design that really works. For a start the patch is moulded so has a rounded shape that ensures that eyelashes do not rub against the inside of it. This means that you do not need to keep the eye tightly shut and can simply relax your face. The shape also ensures that there is a good circulation of air inside to avoid the patch feeling hot and sweaty.

I decided to use a pair of leather thongs to secure it in place rather than the ubiquitous elastic, again I find that leather thonging is cooler and nicer to wear.

So if you are looking for a great authentic looking patch that really works and feels comfortable, look no further. Of course, I am happy to emboss and decorate according to your wishes, decorative stitching, skull and crossbones? Steampunk version, or even a pair of moose antlers? Maybe not. Just contact with your requirements and I am sure I can meet them.

Aaargh, an' if ye be a mangy swab that has a need to look piratey, well there ye be! Avast there.

I love this eyepatch. I recently lost vision in my left eye and was looking for a nice fitting, not overly large patch. This is quality construction and quick delivery (about 10 days total but he's making it in UK and shipping to US). Steve was very courteous and quick to respond to questions. Great transaction. Thank you!

I ordered an eye patch from Steve and his craftsmanship is supurb. The eye patch is quite comfortable to wear and when wearing the eye patch I can easily open and close my damaged eye without any discomfort. I highly recommend Blackwater Leather to anyone looking an excellent product from a craftsman who cares about other people. Thank You Steve!

The eye patch was excellent. Steve knows what he’s doing. He improved on my request and produced a stylish, comfortable patch for a reasonable price. Postage was prompt. I have already ordered a similar patch. Look no further, you won’t find a superior product. Five stars.
