This bolo is a big 'ol expensive hunk of actual white buffalo stone. Look-alike magnecite just won't do here. You could wear this sharp bolo to the 'Opry; the rodeo or the courtroom. Its a long, tall daddy at nearly 50-inches end-to-end, so it will hang maybe 22-inches from the back of the neck—depending on the neck! Total weight is 78-grams, or 2.75-ounces. The bolo itself is 2 and 7/8th's-inches tall, and 2 and 1/8th's-inches across the middle. The lanyard is leather, of course. Never take that for granted. Naugahyde is artificial leather and many, many, cheap tourist-quality bolos use naugahyde to save money. Twist the lanyard back and forth and smell it. Leather smells like leather and fake leather smells like naugahyde. As we said before, if you don't feel like spending a few hundred bucks—at least—for a decent bolo, just don't buy one at all. Cheap bolos are like cheap shoes. You know what I mean. Hallmarked with a hand-stamped "AL." If you want to think about a little bit, take your time. I LIKE wearing this.
