This is a bag of German lumberjacks from the end of the High Gothic period, i.e. the 12th -13th century. The flap is embellished with a decorative shape symbolizing a boar’s tooth which shall allegedly endow its wearer with supernatural strength. Symbolism has accompanied common people from time immemorial and helped them in their hard lives.
2.5-3 mm thick cowhide gives a certain self-supportive feature to the product. The bag will not “sag”. Occasional surface treatment will secure that the wearer will be still much pleased with the bag even after many years of use. Besides the colour shown in the picture the lather bag “Boar’s tooth” is available in other colours: see the choice of colour. You also have the option to choose your own colour for the decoration (the pleated hide in the boar’s tooth). It will be made according to your wish.
Please note: This product is made by hand from genuine leather. This is a purely natural material. Minor differences in the colour and surface texture are its natural characteristics. These small imperfections do not decrease the value of the product. Each piece is to some extent an original.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
