Now THIS is a bolo. It's custom all the way. Big expensive stone—probably Royston, and a long, cylindrical custom-made tips, and a thick 50-inch hand-woven lanyard. This is a real bolo—not a tourist curio made with store-bought tips and thin store-bought lanyard. This actually came out of a trading post pawn vault, but it's not old. The maker put a lot of work and materials in this beauty. The Drifter has been alternating this in with his usual Tommy Singer bolo. So it's been in good company. The gauge of the Sterling is also thick, not paper-thin like the cheap store-bought stuff. It should hang approximately 23 or 23.5-inches down from the back of one's neck. This is a keeper. And it is definitely a bargain for a top-notch, classy bolo tie.
