This wallet is named after the infamous First Mate fiasco that caused a big mess in the workshop and is comprised of hand selected North American Beaver Tail.
Here's the story if you missed it - "My First Mate made a mistake that would change Southern Trapper forever. He thought it would be funny to play a prank on me, but he accidentally knocked over a bottle of black dye onto a light tan alligator skin that I had just finished dying. I must have dropped every cuss word in the book. He reached for a cloth to soak up the dye before it quickly spread across the entire alligator, but it was too late. The black dye had left its mark. A handsome mark with deep character that I quickly began to like. The contrasting tones brought out the texture and masculinity of the alligator, and I knew he was onto something great. Instead of asking him to scrub the poop deck, I asked him to fire up the sewing machine and make a few wallets. His mistake earned him a spot in my Legendary Tales collection, meet The First Mate" - Capt Bligh
