The cuffs are made of faux leather, and are a lovely matte red color with small grain. Black stitching holds the two pieces of the cuff, and the stitching is secure all the way around. The cuff piece is 9” long and 2” wide. The back of the cuff is finished leather.
The buckling strap is on top of the cuff piece, and is attached to the cuff by 7 nickel-plated brass studs. A nickel-plated steel D-ring is held onto the strap by the studs. The strap is 12” long, including the buckle, and is 1” wide. It features six holes for adjustability. The back of the strap is unfinished, with a suede-like feel.
The cuffs feature a locking buckle, and a small padlock fits nicely through the buckle pin.
The cuffs will comfortably fit wrists from 6 1/2" to 8 1/2". Smaller wrists will have some overlap of the cuff, while larger wrists will have a gap between cuff ends. For those with small ankles, these will work as ankle cuffs as well.
The cuffs are easy to put on by yourself, if you are adept at putting on watches or bracelets with one hand. Otherwise, a partner’s assistance will be required. The cuffs aren’t overly light, so you’ll know you have them on your wrists. The D-rings can be folded against the cuffs, or pulled out for attachment.
The leather is comfortable on the skin. It does have a tendency to trap sweat, but it is not excessive.
These cuffs are easy to care for. They should be cleaned with dish soap or leather cleaner. A toothbrush can be used to gently scrub the surface. They should never be soaked in water. Excess soap should be removed with a moist cloth.
After washing, the cuffs should be patted dry to get all water and moisture out of any folds or creases. They should be stored out of direct sunlight and heat.
To disinfect the cuffs, they can be wiped with a solution of 70% isopropyl rubbing alcohol.
The cuffs can be reconditioned with leather conditioner. If properly cared for, cleaned regularly and dried thoroughly prior to storage in a cool dry place, the hardware will not tarnish.
The cuffs come in a simple plastic bag held closed by a sticky label with the item product code. The cuffs are loosely rolled together inside, and a tag is attached by plastic loop to one cuff.. A smaller fabric black tag is attached to the back side of each cuff by a stud.
These cuffs are made in Canada, and guaranteed for life. If the cuffs break during normal wear or are defective, Aslan Leather can be contacted for repair or replacement. The tag contains a toll-free number and a website address for the company.
I received these cuffs in conjunction with the matching collar, and I love the set! While they can be worn without the collar and are effective both in look and function, they really add to the look when worn together. I really like the color and design.
I was able to put these on without any help, but they can be tricky if you aren’t used to buckling something on your own wrist. My partner also enjoyed putting these on me, especially when he locked them on. He enjoyed how these looked, and the D-rings allowed him to tie them together, as well as well as attach them to other ties and hold on to them with his fingers.
These will be part of our toybox for erotic play for a long time to come.
