Nice plaited reins for the price. They arrived SOAKED in oil, I had to run a rag over them multiple times to mop them up, and left them out for almost two weeks just airing out. It’s not a super bad thing, at least they were oiled, but maybe a little less next time guys.
The color is very dark on the “outside” of the rein, almost black, but the inside is Havana. I’m just going to roll with it- I suspect all that oil is to blame for the dark color. You get what you pay for- and I’ll take the cheap price over the high dollar stuff- but here, the quality of leather and workmanship exceeds expectations.
