I'm with Eli on this one. Why? Look nice, attract moisture, eleminate room in loop, etc. But if you must, leather boot laces work fine. Good day, Jack

Many thanks to you both!

Ummm, the thought of getting any rust on my 1894 does not appeal to me.

Thanks again.

I saw a wrap a fella made using an easy on easy off type of wrap. It wasn't for looks but for comfort. He used a cuff style that had snaps on the under side of the lever, that way he could remove it at the end of the session or hunt and wipe down and oil after, leaving the wrap off when in the safe or storage. If I remember correctly he used 3-4 oz. chap/glove leather, in elk or moose leather. A local leather shop might just have some scrap cuts to sell for a reasonable price and with some snaps or lace you could make your own lever chap cuff.
