Re: Merrill Marketing

Nemo got some self-mocked arrows from him a while back. He posted pictures of them in this topic, along with pricing information - viewtopic.php?f=28&t=1810

It was a while ago, so things might have changed, but he's done it before.

Re: Socks or Footwraps

That being said, Taurinor, you wouldn't be able to share the pattern you used for your chausses, would you? I want to make a pair without under-foot seams myself. I sort of winged it when I made them, but I drew a sketch that will hopefully explain what I did. What I wanted to avoid was this: http:...

Re: Socks or Footwraps

I don't wear socks under my chausses, but I've only used them to walk around for a few hours at a time. When I finally get out into the woods, I plan to also bring a pair of 18th century wool stockings as back-up/additional foot coverings for if my feet get cold and/or wet. So, the plan is to go wit...

Re: Cold Steel Seax project (continued)

I've gotten some precut straps from Crazy Crow that I thought were good for the money (especially compared to Tandy's prices) and they also have small squares and rectangles of their strap leather for making sheaths that is a little cheaper than the above link. Nothing already dyed, though. http://w...

That's awesome! I love all the "in progress" shots - it's really cool to see a project like this come together.

Re: Waterproof Ranger boots?

I don't know your specifications for a boot being a ranger boot, but you might like something like this: http://www.revivalclothing.com/restockedtalbotsmedievalkneeboots.aspx I suggest that style because they are smooth grain leather, which could be treated to help with water resistance, and they do...

Re: Scabbard leather wrap tutorial PDF

Wow, the finished scabbard looks really cool!

I really like this tutorial, which is similar, but less ornate. It also includes instructions for a few different ways to make a core, as well as adding an intergrated sword belt.

Re: BEAR WITH ME

If you want something based on what is seen in medieval manuscripts, you probably are going to end up with what looks like an arrow with a tennis ball on the end of it. Well, a wooden tennis ball, anyway. From The Taymouth Hours : http://molcat1.bl.uk/IllImages/BLCD/mid/c666/c6668-05a.jpg You can se...

Re: Pictures of your Sewing Kit

Here is the beginning of my sewing kit. It's a needle case I made, based loosely on an extant 14th century example. When I say loosely, I mean that I saw a picture and said "I bet I could make something like that if I did this..." https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/GIfWokwBM4C2wj-zZD9CJLca4...

Re: The beginning of my kit clothing (pic heavy)

Thanks! That means a lot, especially from someone with such a well thought out kit as yourself. Are those the "Medieval High Shoes" from Boots By Bohemond? They look great! I may have to invest in a pair myself after seeing yours. I love my current boots (Franken-boots though they may be),...

Re: Getting started, old and new - kit photos in the woods

I really like the horn containers - I've been trying to figure out a way to carry things that need some waterproofing without resorting to little tins.

It's a single thickness. I was going for a three-season sort of garment, so I'll probably need to make a heavier winter one or make a wool arming cap to swap out with my linen one.

Finally took a picture of my kit out at the shooting range. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/PbJc3wPyyvE_9c060rOOyrspOFnzIqYX9Jof22lSR77TbCokIpaM1rf3JDY6pcYgg3GL0ez7kJ9j6ELXE0V-dziY9wG7gge9qEwWLJKwOzQhi1XCoGUrDDlsz_tI8EfQv2T-ayw6NA I think the browns work pretty well with the surroundings, but I th...

That has happened to me. I usually wear a glove when I shoot off my hand to keep it from happening.
