  2. Hand Forged Buckles

    Steel buckles can be heat treated and polished to help prevent rust. They can also be tinned, blued, browned etc.

  4. Is Google is killing art?

    Rat Patrol!
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Has anyone seen a waist belt like this before?

  9. 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

    A 1/4" thick 4x8 sheet of HDPE will run about 110.00 plus shipping if you don't have access locally. Probably less than 200.00 total and you have a full coverage cutting surface.

    Just cover it with a sheet of HDPE.
