Leather Shot Bags & Accouterments for the French & Indian War.
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!

New Accouterments

New trade ax & red handle trade knife
 The Capt. is working on a new persona of a officer commissioned by Sir William Johnson to operate as a ranger in the Mohawk Valley. Here are a few of his new accouterments that he has picked up to go along with the new persona. All leather work was done by hand and no dye was used. When finished I hand rubbed in neets-foot oil and some bee's wax for the final finish.
