Hi, I would use the croc birkin without the lock and the clochette..I wouldn't risk to scratch such a beauty..hope it helps!:flowers:

Dear P sydspy, even it is a covered lock.... It still scratches the surface of crocodile. :faint:

sakara54......... Thank you for your clarification........... I always assume that the covered lock was made so that it will not scratch the leather.......... I guess I have been wrong then............

yes unfortunately the covered lock does leave scratches as sakara54 said...
I guess I'll just have to leave the keys at home..and perhaps put the lock on the center ring(?) part.

I don't put it on because beautiful as they are I like to see the full panel of the animals scale and natural design I feel that in croc as opsed to leather interrupts the beauty !

I leave my lock, keys & clochette in the box. Hanging them off the strap is not worth it - you have to worry about scratches, smileys & dinging the croc.

Sometimes I think about hanging the croc lock & clochette from another "regular" leather B, but I'm too lazy to do so :P

It would be one way to make use of the "extra" croc bits - you could use it with both ghw & phw bags as the croc covers the lock hw.
