Found 2, forgot the before shot, sorry. The "leather" (no it's not, they tell you it is) was slashed on front and back. So I did this and a guy at work is buying it. I'm not finished. I may stain it a bit darker, and give it a few coats of poly. Not sure how to correct the black handle yet.

It's black and he doesn't like it. It really doesn't match. I thought about the cord thing, may do that. I may take the other one and "strip" the handle to see what lurks beneath. I'll have to show the other when it's done. Very bohemian, IMO.

A Leather shoelace wound around the handle would make a great match. Youve done a great job so far. I have thought it would be nice to have one for dumpster diving, you could keep your flashlight, gloves, first aid kit, etc... in it and hve it in the car for those unexpected stops.
Dont take life too seriously! You'll never make it out alive!!
If there is nothing wrong with the handle why don't you somehow add black accents to the case so it looks as if it matches. Maybe rub black paint over it just to get in the crevasses. Or if you don't have to clear coat it you could use black shoe polish. Gives it a nice patina too.
