WOW Skip, you have been a busy feller, those are some nice pouches. I like the one with the horn attached. Nice work...

Thank you for the kind words: i picked up a bunch of horns at a flea market {pre covid} and that little horn was in the bag: the guy was selling off his fathers stuff and was not interested in them: i made the pouch to go with my Kibler mt rifle and thought the horn was a good fit: here is another i sent to my great nephew: had a little fun with the red thread: he can dye it or let it get its own patina:

I too like them all! But the second one really grabs me... Like the shape and the ticking liner.

thanks: there is something about ticking that looks good: its getting harder to find good thick quality and affordable ticking: i got some last year from a local shop and they got me for $35 a yard: and it now seems that old fabric has a collector value: so the hunt is on: sk

Hi Skip very nice looking work. What kind of leather did you use to make the bag with the horn in photos 7 & 8.
Thanks Richard

thanks: the pouch with the horn is 3-4oz veg-tan with fiebings dark brown dye: the small pouch [same} with the rivets is raw apple cider vinegar with rusty iron then strained: had to soak it and wring it out a couple of times to cut the smell:  sk

Beautiful work, you have some talent.With all the hours in your bags,is there a reason using the modern rivets instead of just sewing the strap.No criticism,just wondering why?

 thank you for bringing it to my attention: your point is well taken: could have used a more correct rivet: as a blacksmith i often use rivets for joinery, as i make my own and should have thought it through: thanks, sk

bbbf, I don't have any problems finding the nice vintage ticking in any color.  Here's a link for only $11.99/yard.  There's another one selling for 9.99 /yard.  Good luck on your search.

thanks for the link: i will get some: i do know that there are a couple different thickness to ticking: the thicker it is the more money per yard: i have a place close to me that has a basement full, floor to ceiling of 30 or more years of remnants that has yielded some nice old fabric: you need to spend time to look at everything as it is piled up tight: sk

Wrought iron possibly ? I’ve often wondered if that type of joinery was used in the past and in what time period and of what material. Not sure if there is a definitive answer on this subject. Nice bags !

thank you: joinery for most iron goods was forge welding, mortice and tenon and iron rivets: iron and copper could be used for armor, hearth items like ladles, turners and such along with brass: the question becomes, how often were rivets used in the making of hunting pouches and in leather work? did they make them with rivets or used for repair? since pouches were made, used and repaired the time frame should include 18th, 19th, and early 20th century: a good subject to research: sk
