I made the bag from veg tanned calf hide, and it is all hand stitched. I made the Berks screw tipped horn at a horn workshop with Art DeCamp. The measure is from some antlers I had in the shop, and the knife was made by Charlie Wallingford. The set is based on an original.

These are premium walnut blanks, air dried for 3 years, and ready for use. All but #1 (2 1/2") are 3" thick, and suitable for 48" barrels. The grain is very tight, and will darken quite nicely when oiled. $95 each plus shipping. I also have more to saw into turning blanks and powder horn butt plugs, as well as more nice blanks available. More photos available upon request.I have several nice blanks on hand..Thanks...Dan

An original 18th century horn with nice patina. The natural color is greenish brown, and the strap is linen. The butt is 3 1/2" across, and the spout is nicly facetted. Horns like this were common working horns, and this one has been "sealed" so it can be used again.
This is my favorite hunting outfit. The bag was made by my friend Joe Mills, and the knife by Charlie Wallingford. The original horn has a very unique plug. It was turned with a long diameter to match the horn, seperated by a deep vee groove.
