Welcome to my Blog! My name is Darrel Lang and I specialize in the Replication of Leather shot bags & Accouterments made in the colonies by the harness and saddle maker of the18th century. All items are hand sewn using waxed linen thread, dyed, then treated with neatsfoot oil & bee’s wax. The leather used is of veg. tanned cow hide 2-3 or 4-5 oz. weight. Other materials used are pig skin, period correct linens for the 18th century and iron or brass buckles. Please take a look at what I have to offer. Thank you!

Finished order

These two axes where sent to me so that I could make up the sheaths for them. The first is a small ax and the second is a very large style poll ax.
The customer asked if I could make up the larger one to fit others that he had at home. So not knowing what the others looked like I try not to make this one not as form fitting, hoping that it will fit some of the others. Both sets have adjustable shoulder straps with iron buckles.
