A couple of arm guards out of exotics

Recommended Posts

I recently finished these arm guards for a couple of customers. Both have a vegetable-tanned cowhide backing. The facing on the brown one is hippo hide and the facing on the other one is elephant ear leather. The arrowhead is diamondback rattlesnake skin and I burned the bear onto a piece of elk hide. The trim on both is New Zealand red deer. I carved the lace hooks out of some antlers I took off a buck I killed with my longbow. Everything was sewn by hand using artificial sinew, B-50, and B-55. The last two materials I use to make bow strings out of too.

Those look great.  I really like the style you've developed in your work.

I really like your style too. It has a primitive look about it. Not sure if the hieroglyphs make me lean that way but I really like it. They look flawlessly executed aside from aesthetics.
