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!

Large Powder Horn

I picked up this horn a few weeks back.
It's a large horn measuring 16" along the outside curve and 3 1/2" across the widest point of the butt end of the horn. I added a heavy leather strap to it to carry the weight of the horn when filled with powder. I believe it can be carried right or left side.
This is would be a great size horn for someone carrying a large bore fowler or musket.
"Rangers where required to carry sixty rounds of ball and a pound of powder."
This will be available at the Kalamazoo Trade show in March.
