Leathercrafting

Recommended Posts

I've recently become interested in bespoke, made-to-order leathercrafting and have made a few items to date. I'm finding myself drawn to the more hard-wearing, robust stuff such as bushcraft, EDC and outdoors pursuit stuff. I recently made these 1oz pouches and wondered if you think they would make suitable storage for things such as fire starting kits, first aid kits, survival tins... or even just for holding your rolling baccy and whatnot. They come with a belt plate on the back which allows the pouch to be worn horizontally or vertically. I'd love to hear your feedback on them. I'm hoping to set up an online shop soon, but for now I'm putting feelers out on here and FB / Instagram. Thanks for your time.

Classy looking . I don't think you can get the old Husqvarna leather felling wedge pouches any more , they are plastic now . Maybe make some for wedges ?

Have you looked into traditional archery accessories. Seems there are quite a few longbow archers around south wales

mmmm, was the minor issue of me nipping over the border & pinching one of their women, but as she has been sent back, would have thought not.........

Perhaps brexit related, what with Macron banging on, but we dont want to start another thread on that topic 🙂

I’m not sure I need a survival tin on the Surrey Sussex borders and I gave up smoking years ago so the baccy tin is long redundant.. A good sturdy leather roll pouch for framing chisels would be very smart though

Thanks, Stubby. That's an idea for me to look into.

Let’s see the clip please 

HI Steve. Do you mean the belt loop / plate on the pouch?  Sorry, I no longer have any of these pouches left at the moment for me to take a photo of. If I make up any more I'll be sure to post a photo here.

I've not, but that's an avenue for me to look into. Thanks for the info.

All I'd need are the sizes of the chisels and I may be able to help you out...
