Belt worn possibles bags

Knocked out acouple of these trying to get together some stuff for my table at the 2015 Nebraska Muzzleloaders Convention

Custom Wallet

Wallet I made for myself. Available for custom order

Wayne asked me to improve upon a bracer he already had. This is what I came up with. Added the forged awl for good measure. And made sure it was well out of the way of the bow string. Inside is suede for comfort.

Hand Forged Trekking Grill

I had seen a very large version of this at a local rendezvous event. And have been wanting to make a smaller, packable version that us Bushcrafters might have a use for. So this is what I came up with. I'm very happy with how it came out. Hope to get in some more testing time soon. I will be offering these for sale at some point. Price will be around $65-70 with the canvas bag.

Killinger Blades Necker Sheath

A little neck sheath for a Killinger Blades Necker. Alittle different then ones I've done in the past. I quite like it.

Another Game Keepers bag.

After I made the first one for Croatoan ( this one [url]http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/showthread.php/102590-Gamekeeper-s-hunting-pouch-for-Croatoan[/url]) Trapper04 contacted me about making one like it for a custom fowler he was having made. He gave little direction, other then he liked the first.....this is what he got. Only hardware I did not hand forge was the button....but almost made one just cause. This one also has my first forged buckle on it, I am very pleased with how it turned out. Pouch is elk hide, with deer rawhide trim and hair on calf hide on the flap. And given a good coat of rendered bear fat for good measure.

EDC Sheath for a little Turley

TS-n-SoTx hit me up this go around for a sheath that he could wear as an EDC sheath for this little Turley Arghandab. He gave some instructions, but left most of it up to me......this is what he is getting! Hope he likes it.

He had told me he liked my forged items when added to the sheath, so I forged a small cross from an old square nail and added it to the front.

Then he had mentioned he liked rattlesnake skin, so I used that to work in a bullet hole on the deer hide and ...inlaid a small piece of rattle snake behind it.

He asked it to be cross draw carry or neck so I threw in a small forged d ring to tie a lanyard to if need be.

And being the sheath is on the small side I didn't have a lot of room for my normal forged awl, so I made a smaller one and put it in the welt.

Another take on an Otzi inspired sheath, with a MP Knives Otzi knife

My buddy Wayne sent me this beauty and told me to do my thing, he wanted to be able to wear it on his belt or neck carry. Other then that I was free to run with it. Like the first one I did for Croatoan I did some twining, like Otzi did when he made his back in the day. But, this go around I used elk rawhide cut into strips. I did it while wet and let it dry on a small rack of sorts over night and then trimmed to fit the sheath. Then made the rest of the sheath out of veg tanned covered in deer rawhide. I really like how this one turned out, so much I might have to make one for myself.

 As far as the MP Knives Otzi goes, that handle is badass. Super comfy. I might have to take a cue from it and make me a squared handled knapped knife.
