Brooks B17 Narrow Carved Black

(Color: Black, Brooks: Narrow)

Ready Stock


The B17 Narrow Carved is another variation of our time-honoured B17 design, featuring a distinctive cut-out section in the top of the leather, first conceived and registered by Brooks over a century ago. In the catalogue of J.B. Brooks & Co. dated 1890 a model called the B86 Imperial, with its unique "registered cutting", is described as "a sure preventative to all perenial pressure".
Another distinctive feature of the B17 Narrow Imperial are the perforations along the lower edge of the leather sides, which are threaded together one side to the other by a lace. This can be adjusted to help maintain the saddle’s shape and provide comfort in the long term. Tying the leather lace tightly pulls the sides of the saddle closer together, conversely loosening the lace enables the saddle sides to splay slightly further apart. This sideways fine-tuning of the B17 Narrow Imperial is of course in addition to the usual fore-and-aft tensioning mechanism common to all Brooks Saddles. 
This saddle is handmade in England and is guaranteed for 2 years from the date of purchase.

To protect the leather, we recommend treating the saddle with Proofide, Brooks own saddle oil. This will keep it protected if it gets a little wet and aid in the break-in process.
