If I am not mistaken all hatters use bodies form Winchester.
I would like to get this hat in 100% beaver, but have a hard time with their price of $900.00 when Buckaroo Hatters charges $435.00 for theirs.
Looking forward to hearing from members regarding this situation.
Yikes! They have raised their prices-- actually I didn't know Knudsen even offered a 100% beaver.
Everything I've seen here from Buckaroo Hatters has been nothing short of amazing, especially that one MJS just posted (I had forgotten about that one!).
That said, I have yet to see a better formed western derby than Knudsen's. My Bat Masterson is perfect, but wool. I wish I had known then the differences that made the higher cost of fur a worthwhile expenditure...
