ONDURA DURABLE GOODS | THE PERFECT HORN COMB COMBINED WITH ITS PERFECT LEATHER CASE

Every morning after I pulled on my Tellason denim, I put a knife into the right front pocket and a comb to the left back pocket. As using pomade daily a good working comb is a-must-have for me. And since decades I am looking for the perfect comb. Sometimes I thought I found the one I was looking for, but I was never perfectly satisfied. But since I got my Ondura Durable Goods combs I think I can stop looking for the perfect comb. The combs lie perfect in the hand and it makes me every time smile when I use one of these beauties, because they work best. Not to heavy, not to light – just perfect. The combs are made of real horn and each one is unique by its color, signed with a small Ondura logo on one side. And what I like most is that every comb comes in a special leather case. I can’t stop touching these … The cases are available in 3 color ways: tan, brown and black and I can’t tell you what I like most. They are made of 1.5 mm thick high quality natural vegetable tanned calf leather. Very nice! I am really excited about the patina the cases will show by using them hard. You can feel that this comb and case combination is made to last. And the size is perfect too: 15 cm x 5 cm x ca. 1 cm fits every back pocket very well. This is what I mean when I am talking about “LIFE TIME GEAR”! You’ll find these and other great stuff at: www.ondura.de

POCKETKNIFE WITH PANCAKE HOLSTER by ONDURA DURABLE GOODS

I own a lot of knives but not such a nice combination: The ONDURA pocketknife with its so well done pancake holster – an absolute must have for men loving knives, collecting knives … The knife is a simple classic German pocketknife, which was developed and produced by famous OTTER-Messer Company in Solingen/Germany. For ONDURA it was really important to get a knife which is made complete traditionally here in Germany. The blade length is 100 mm and made of carbon steel. For safety reasons it is fitted with a backlock. The handles are so nice to touch – in German we call this a “Handschmeichler” –, these are made from olive wood with a nice texture. The brass ONDURA bear in the inlay is not just nice to watch: the bear on the knife and the bear on the holster must be covered by each other – there is only one way to put the knife into the holster: bear over bear. This works perfect! The “pancake” holster is made of two 4mm thick vegetal tanned leather layers  It is clued, sewed and riveted, mould and decorated with the ONDURA bear branding. The edges are brushed and polished. ONDURA offers also the perfect belt for the holster, the Workman Belt in tan. But I think it fits my vintage DUKES belt as good … Now the holster must age in daily use … exciting about the look it will get. Guys, this must be one thing written to your x-mas list – time is running 😉 pics | LTG

 

BLACK VEGETABLE LEATHER SUNGLASS CASE | by ONDURA – DURABLE GOODS

A few days ago I got an envelope addressed by ONDURA. ONDURA? I heard about but where? And while opening i got an idea: i know it from the BURG & SCHILD blog. Yes, ONDURA DURABLE GOODS is the Label behind German LEENS JAN ONDRA. He has an interesting story and I am really happy, that he send me this great sunglass case to check it … and for sure for me it is an honor to write something about it. The case from the “Black Bear”-Edition has a great touch, made of 3 mm high quality vegetable leather. It is hand sewn and the “nose” is made from European beech wood. Because I also wear optical glasses I know what a good glass case makes a good one: and this one is a perfect one. The functionality is impressing even when I put my fat framed glasses to it. It is always easy to close the case, nothing is to tight, to bulky. Next time I will order the another one – I think a tan one. And for sure everything is made by hand here in Germany. Sustainability is really important for LEENS. The leather he uses is from a small tannery just around the corner and all the other needed stuff is from the region he lives. His motto is “Local Goods – Think global buy local.” Authenticity and durability are a matter of course to the products he creates and produces. The product range is growing constant.
