  1. I learned from when I started making chainmaille tools do make a difference. Cheap tools make the work harder and less enjoyable. So I would like to start with some mid range or better tools. This may be a newbie question but what is a "strop"? I'm looking to make a set of pauldrons. Nothing historically correct but more fantasy style. I understand it's going to take quite a bit of work and mistakes before I get them right but I'm to sacrifice the time and leather. I've been looking fot a particular look and haven't been able to find it.
  2. I'm currently working on a chain piece in trade for some leather. It's something I've wanted to try for awhile so when the opportunity came up to barter for some I couldn't pass it up. It will be about 3 weeks before I'm finished with the piece I'm working on. I live just outside Manassas. I'm not sure what I'll need to start as far as tools. Any suggestions would be helpful.
  3. Hello everyone, I'm thinking about getting into leather working. I have been doing custom chainmaile armor for about 8 years now. I'm looking to expand it into leather and chain. I'm looking at trying my hand at armor mostly. I'm having a rough time finding patterns or tutorials to help with this endeavor. I'm looking to do this as a hobby not professionally. Just make it for my self and friends. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
