"Anything hand crafted is far more valuable than anything made by a machine. A hand crafted item contains not only the base ingredients but a part of someone's life, their psyche and their dreams."

Summer / Fall 2017: I am running at least 12 weeks on new orders, please be patient as I work hard to catch up. More details on my ordering page!

 

Adding a Shopping Cart!

I am currently adding a shopping cart! This will take some time as I have to generate a unique button (with many options in some cases) for each and every item here, so many items don't have buttons yet so bear with me! For all ordering details, visit my standard ordering page here.

Baldrics & Bandoliers

 

What's the difference between a baldric and a bandolier? The terms are somewhat interchangeable, but in general a Baldric simply carries your weapon, and a bandolier will have way to carry accessories, such as pockets, bullet loops, or other ways to attach extra stuff.

 Back to Pirate Goods

Baldrics come in different widths, and each width has it's own options for available buckle styles. Scroll down to find your preference!

A common method of slinging your sword at your side, perfect for Medieval Swordsmen and Pirates alike! Many people make baldrics, but mine incorporate my own unique touches to add versatility and strength! Baldrics come in different widths, each with their own options for available buckle styles. My standard widths are 2", 2", and 3". Custom widths are available also, just right for your custom buckle! Also, all of my baldrics are fully reversible for right or left handers!

Strap End Selection

You have your choice of different shapes for your strap ends. Select (left to right); Bullet Point, Rounded Blunt, or Squared standard. it not specified we will choose one for you. (This photo shows the 3" versions; the other versions are similar)

 

Buckle Attachment Options

Return to Menu

I take the time to hand stitch every buckle in place! Sure it's more work for me, but hand stitching is more accurate to the period and actually stronger than rivets! Snaps or Chicago Screws are available if you prefer to be able to remove the buckle.

Please add $4 to the price for the snap or screw option.

Plain or Fancy Tooling

You can have the option of having your baldric plain or tooled with a fancy border (click on the photo to enlarge). Tooled borders are only $9 extra! If you'd like something more elaborate, I can do an elaborate decoration as well! Examples are below:

This section is still under construction with more border options. Check back soon!

 

New or Distressed

Return to Menu

You also have your choice of different conditions of your baldric. When new, the leather is quite stiff, but our opinion is that a broken in appearance is more desirable, so we take a few minutes to begin breaking in each piece. If you would rather that yours be new and stiff to break in yourself, please say so! If you would like additional distressing, to give it a few years worth of wear which may included scuffing, nicks, fraying wear points, and other damage, just say so! A small fee of $9 will apply for the time. 

Normal Broken In

Shown is new on top and broken in on bottom. Click photo for larger image.

Broken in Comes Standard if not specified.

Severely Distressed / Damaged

Severely distressed and damaged. In addition to being broken in, this one has the tip missing and shows signs of abrasion and wear. $9 extra. 

 

Accessories and Accessory Holes

Return to Menu

 

All of my baldrics have the option of having accessory holes giving you the ability to add some accessories. If you would like this option, please specify so!

 

$3

Here is one with the accessory holes. They are on the front and back.

Dsc11689

The accessory holes allow you to carry things such as powder chargers. Click here to see some of our accessories!

Here is one without accessory holes.

Baldrics can have holsters fitted to them as well! Using my specially designed holsters, you can attach them to the front as well and in place of your sword!

 

Ordering Concerns

Return to Menu

Sizing

To find the right size, find a tape measure and use it as shown in the diagram. Start at your hip where the base of the sword hilt would be (the joint of the baldric itself) and take it up your front and down your back, returning to the joint. Get a friend to help you if needed. Note: Measuring the front and doubling the number doesn't work; often the front and back lengths are different!

Use the measurement against the chart below to determine your size:

Base Size Baldric will adjust in this range
Small - 54" 50" - 59"
Regular - 60" 56" - 65" 
Medium - 66" 62" - 71"
Large - 72" 68" - 77"
Extra large - 78" 74" - 83"
