Clipboard with Mast Ship Hand Engraving - Full Grain Leather


Shipping to United States: Free

I have always been enamored with the majesty of tall masted ships and the miracle of human ingenuity they represent.

They revolutionized the world. Enabling trade by sea. Leading to the founding of the nation I call home. Colonists stepped off ships not too unlike this one, onto what would one day become American soil nearly 600 years ago.

It is impossible to capture the full effect of these pieces in a single still photograph.

The magic of low relief engraving is in the way light and shadow play across the many facets of a carved surface.

Viewed from any new angle, the design is given renewed life.

Turned in your hand, highlights dance along the edges and contours of each board and rigging line; Every one cut line by line with a knife and further textured with other tools.

These engravings are permanent and will last as long as the durable leather they are created on. They will never wear or chip away with time or use.

This leather clipboard provides a beautiful writing surface with the perfect amount of give for a smooth note taking experience. Similar to one of my desk pads but small enough to carry wherever you need to go and rigid enough to be used in the crook of your arm.

This is an aluminum backed clipboard wrapped in leather.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

I can do just about anything with leather.

If you have something special in mind, that's my favorite kind of work to do. Contact me and we can work out the details of your custom order.

Small adjustments like shifting dimensions and adding names, initials, and logos are always possible.

Thinking about something a little more elaborate?

If your request is something I have never done before I do accept these orders but only on a specific set of terms.

I've never made anything right the first time. The item doesnt just have to be made, it has to be designed, made, tested, redesigned, remade, and repeated as necessary.

Because of this custom orders may take several weeks to fill and this effort will be reflected in the cost.

Care instructions

I offer a service to help both instruct customers in the proper care unique to this kind of leather and to provide reminders when your leather should be due for a quick cleaning and oiling.

This takes the form of an email mailing list and a link to subscibe is available in the reciept of every item from my shop.

This list is never used for any marketing efforts, new product announcement, promotions, or any other such funny buiness. I've got a different list for that sort of thing.

Wholesale availability

I offer some of my items on a wholesale basis. Please contact me for specific details.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All stock items are packaged in simple, clean, brown packaging. Inside the box, your ordered items are carefully wrapped and nestled in clean, brown paper for a safe journey.

This is intended to be both unassuming to avoid attracting mail thieves, but still nice enough to gift directly.

Special notes for your gift recipient can be added in with the order by request.

When a custom order does not fit into one of my stock boxes I will substitute whatever is around, usually an Amazon box. If you would prefer cleaner packaging I can accommodate this by request.
