Handmade by Monica. Blue Steel line is the type of rope we use for salmon fishing. It is extra tough, resistant to rot and weather, and waterproof. Blue Steel also happens to be the name of our best lead dog! The leash is spliced and whipped by hand, old nautical techniques we still use today fishing and mushing. The handle is hand laced, padded for comfort and has the Team Zappa logo burned into leather. The snap is made is Sweden and the style is most durable and user friendly on the market. Leash is about 5 ft.
