Re: Dwarven Baldric and Belt

The pattern is very nicely rendered - I assume that's the laser machine you've talked about? I assume you do the design yourself in some kind of vector package? Yep, it's all lasered on. It's the best way to ensure dwarven precision. We found a knotwork design he liked and modified and expanded it ...

Re: What are we doing?

I run a leather workshop, so I tend to have at least one ranger-y project going at a time, the most recent was the pouch here: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=4339

Some time soon I plan to make a replica of faramirs duster from the two Towers for a customer.

Re: Dwarven Baldric and Belt

I'm particularly fond of the belt...it's right on the money for a dwarf. The buckle has a similar feel to the West Door of Moria. it all came together based on the buckle. He wanted a wide belt, but the buckle was only 1.5", so we did the weave style so it can be a 3" belt all together, o...

Dwarven Baldric and Belt

A dwarf themed baldric and belt I made for Bumr Blackbrand. It has a few more hard lines than my normal style baldric, with etched knotwork and forged buckles that he tracked down. The sword and knife in the baldric are not the ones he was planning on using them with, but they were the most appropri...

Re: Looking to have my kit critiqued part 2

I had a few DSA sword about 10 years ago and they were ok. Very heavy blades, and very questionable cast hilts. The stuff I've handled from them in the past 3 or so years has been outstanding in construction and handling, so they've definitely come a long way.

I *adore* the sigil! It's perfect!

Thanks! I've been toying with the design for a while. I think this is the 8 or 9th draft, but I'm very happy with this version.

Re: Grommet's Leathercraft

There's a separate link there where someone used a fully threaded rod and an eyebolt. That seems a lot easier, if angled a bit weird.

New Pouch

I liked the design I did for the pouch I made Taylor so much that I made it a standard offering on my website, and I made a slightly modified version for myself. I made mine out of dark brown bison with a button I carved out of some cocobolo scrap. The design on the flap is something I cobbled toget...
