" The color, tan, is quite different, lifeless, not rich. The leather has zero sheen. It seems to be nicely made, but what I'd call rawhide. Fine textured, soft and I'd prefer stiffer, and edges ate turned. Under the handles they aren't even stitched. I now see how a reviewer could see it as messy. The handles and edges just go anyway. I'll keep it, hoping once I oil it, it'll look richer. I'll stuff it and store it and hopefully the bottom will flatten, open. But it's solid and I got a great price. Not yet pretty. "
