Over the Shoulder Carriage

I just finished making up these two over the shoulder carriage. I made one up for myself several years back to carry my belt ax and my long knife. I have since quit using the long knife and only carry the ax. I used a double frog and added a shoulder strap to it. With the knife gone I modified it to a single frog. It can be used to carry a hunting sword, ax or bayonet. Made from 4/5 oz. veg tanned leather, the strap is 1 1/2"wide with a iron buckle.
I made up the two, one is sold the other will be for sale at Martians Station. "The ax is not included"
