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!

Belt Knife & Sheath

 I made this sheath for a gentlemen who wanted to wear it tuck in to his sash and also having a way to keep it secure. So I added a 4" long tab to the sheath and added a braided piece of hemp to the bottom of the tab so it can be tied in place. The top of the sheath has been wrapped with some hemp line to help keep the handle a little more secure also

New Belt Bags

The first one is made for a member from Wulff's Co. The bag is made from 3oz. veg. tanned leather, hand sewn with linen thread, dyed a dark brown and treated with oil and bee's wax. The flap has some tooling done to it. The bag size is 5" deep by 6" wide with a 1 1/4" gusset, the back of the bag has two belt loops attach to fit up to a 2 1/2" belt.

The second bag is made the same as the first but, has no gusset added just a welted seam.

This is a sheath that I made up for a member from Speakmens Co. of rangers to fit his large poll ax.

Checking gear.
That's the correct way, Capt.
Take point,
Trouble may be a head!
