Handmade by Fiona Ritchie for Sparrowhawk
Suitable for: Pilots who want to protect their Pilot Logbook in a in rustic look, quality logbook cover emblazoned with their name and Sparrowhawk's exclusive pilot's wings.
The Logbook Cover pictured is made from Nubuck leather in the Nubuck, laser engraved with Sparrowhawk's pilot wings and the pilot's name, and handstitched in a Black Irish Linen thread. The "How it is Made" below describes how Fiona made this item. You can select your stitching colour above.
Nubuck is a specific tannery finished, top grain leather that has been sanded to give it a velvet like finish and then coloured. It is quite flexible, but can "hold its own shape", and can be engraved with a pilot's name, Sparrowhawk's wings, or other images, such as a line drawing of an aircraft. Therefore, it's a modern, medium priced alternative to Sparrowhawk's Hand Finished Pilot Logbook covers.
Other images, such as squadron insignia, or aircraft images, may be laser engraved at an additional cost.
How is it made?
The Pilot's Logbook Cover is made from tannery finished, top grain Nubuck leather. The leather is cut to an approximate size for the front cover, and the two keepers for the logbook. The logbook cover is sent for laser engraving. On return, the keepers and cover are fitted and trimmed, and the corners shaped. An edge groove line is used to trace a stitching guideline around the edge of the keeper's join. Then the keepers are fitted to the cover, and the stitching holes around the perimeter are punched through, 3 at a time with a stitching chisel tool and rawhide mallet. Next, the three parts are hand stitched using Irish Linen waxed thread in a two needle saddle stitch.
Genuine top grain Nubuck leather, hand stitched with 4 ply waxed Irish Linen thread, and laser engraved with pilot's name and initials.
