The model of the original Gothic French belt pouch comes from Toulon, a harbour town in France. The used model was common is the 16th century. This was the period when the craftsman technology of pressing leather into various moulds emerged. The front part is pressed out of a single piece of leather on the form called last in order to achieve a desired shape of the bag. The belt pouch is made of up to 3 mm thick smooth cowhide. The back part with the flap is sewn together with the front part with a leather strip. The belt pouch is closed with a simple buckle.
The bag's flap is decorated with ornamental lines engraved in the leather. Stylised flowers attached to the flap with copper rivets are another decoration of the belt pouch. The Gothic French belt pouch is worn suspended on two loops. It fits the belt's width of up to 6 cm. At your request we can produce longer loops. Besides the colour shown in the picture the belt pouch is available in other colours: see the choice of colour.
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.
