The first thing I noticed when using the LCS Leather Shotshell Collar was the fine craftsmanship. The leather shotshell collar features a complementary combination of genuine English Bridle leather and heavy brass work. I think that durable brass buckle and D-ring adds a true uniqueness to the design. This is a very high-quality collar at a reasonable price. My "est buddy? looks great wearing this collar. If you decide to purchase this collar, I recommend mounting the LCS brass nameplate on the collar to really set it off!
