  3. Looking for all-natural veg-tan leather

    Agree. True old time pit, bark tannage
  4. Hand Forged Buckles

    I make them.
  5. New Thread Company Advice

    It appears to be plenty of competition with the modern synthetics. Why not work on some quality linen cordage?
  6. Hand Forged Buckles

    K
  7. Hand Forged Buckles

    Steel buckles can be heat treated and polished to help prevent rust. They can also be tinned, blued, browned etc.
  8. KS Blade Pricking Irons #7 & #8 Sets

    Kudos to you in moving to the awl! GLWS
  9. Is Google is killing art?

    Rat Patrol!
  10. They just dipped those stocks in raw linseed IIRC. A linseed varnish made by cooking with the addition of leaded dryers is more of a finish but not like a modern finish. A raw linseed dip was more for shovels, picks and hoes etc
  11. Sounds like it was applied too thick. Take some fine steel wool or a piece of canvas and dip it in the oil, go over the handle vigorously, take a paper towel and vigorously wipe off all of the oil and then buff with a dry cloth.
  12. Sporran and Waiste Belt

    This is a Sporran and belt I just finished. The sporran is completely of horsehide less the perimeter trim on the flap.
  13. Has anyone seen a waist belt like this before?

    Someone used a trace buckle(harness work)to make a waiste belt
  14. Stiching thinner leather <3/4oz

    Pardon my ignorance..I saw two references to French pricking irons...Other than a brand being made in France(Blanchard for example), what exactly are "French " pricking irons? Is this a new term to distinguish a pricking iron from the stitching irons (many made in Asia)where one punches all the way thru and then goes about lacing the thread in a separate event ? Thanks
  15. What to put on work surface?? (plywood)

    This is great and THE way to go if you can pick up. One 3/8 sheet would cost 191.58 to ship ; )
