  7. Kilts are knee-length skirts like a garment made of the woolen material known as tartan and traditionally worn by Scottish and Irish men and boys. This unique outfit came into existence in the early 16th century when the Scottish and Irish designers thought of an outfit that would give adequate comfort to the male gender in addition to freedom of motion, fabulous appearance and which portrays their rich superb/unique cultural identity. The Kilt was solely designed to be worn by these Scottish and Irish men to formal occasions, highland games and as well as to sporting events.

    Our band will be wearing the Royal Irish Rangers Caubeen bonnet with a Civil war-style Irish harp badge ( honoring both Union and Confederate troops who served, 1861-65 ) with a black hackle. The black hackle denotes remembrance of all unaccounted for Prisoners of War ( POW ) in the United States and Allied Force nations since the Second World War ( 1939-45 ).

    Stamping, Staining, And Tooling

    I'm new to this business, but I also want to take up this serious business. At the moment, I'm looking for interesting and useful information on Skin. Here I recently read an interesting article about stamping the skin. Here is a link, maybe somebody is interesting and useful. https://leather-toolkits.com/reviews/best-stamping-tools-for-leather/

    Hello from Arkansas, USA

    Welcome. I have relatives in the pea ridge/garfield area. Never been there though. Nice work.
  13. Yesterday I was informed of a way to research your heritage at the local library. It's basically free access to Ancestry.ca here in Canada. I'm not too sure if all libraries have this access but it's worth a shot if you want to find out a little bit about your ancestors. Be prepared to spend a fair amount of time there as once you start you may end up with many brick walls, albeit temporary. It also helps to have relatives and parents who can help you answer some questions if you don't know the info yourself. Hope this helps someone. Chrisp

    Hello from Arkansas, USA

    Thanks Crisp. I appreciate your comments. I've forged a few, but had to finish them the hard way by hand. I'll be sure and check out that fellow you suggested. I also make some of the regimental style knives but all that silver work for the scabbard and basket weave carving on the bog oak is very time consuming. I'm sure I'll be posting some of my other knives once I figure out where that kind of thing goes.

    Thanks for the words. I've discovered that all my grandparents have tartans affiliated with their last names so there's much I can choose. My grandparents come from England, Ireland and Scotland and I've checked on a Kilt makers site in Canada and yes they're all septs of clans. I guess now its my choice which one I wear... I've started to buy clan books and some have my grandparents last names and some don't. I realize some have different sources but it can be confusing with all the contradictions and omissions. I suppose there might be an ultimate authority somewhere but people would rarely agree on one. Thanks for your input and the hunt continues for me!

    Hi from U.K. your parents may have a Scottish surname...It may be your mothers maiden name or even your mothers mother's maiden family name ...........If either of ones parents or grandparents have a Scottish Connection they may have a Scottish surname which is the sept of a clan to which the family name was originally attached....... One may have a district in which your family clan members or just your own ancestors resided.... From this source one can check a registered clan or regional tartan which you can wear..... there are also general tartans which may be worn without any specific family or regional link.......... The answer may be to check with a Kiltmaker.....some of the bigger tartan mills can supply tartans for approximately 350 registered tartans......You may well find that you have a choice of four or 5 tartans which you can wear....some tartans were locally worn before the Tartan was registered with the tartan registry in Scotland.....Do not forget that the Cornish , the Welsh , The Irish , the Bretons and other European Counties have their own tartans....surfing the Scottish Clan or Kilt wearing webb sites may produce some useful information... Bet of luck ............wee laddie 18

    Hello from Arkansas, USA

    Hi I'm a cook by trade and am interested in all sorts of knives but so far primarily kitchen related. I was going to suggest you look up Kramer knives to see how far you can go with it. He's got a video on Youtube from the Morning Show or something like that where he talks about his history and his philosophy on being a maker. You also get to see his shop and watch him produce blades. It's knife porn for sure but it's also a good video to watch if you're interested in knives. He started as a knife sharpener for kitchens and then just built up the business over the years to what it is now. Good luck on your journey and although I only have my opinion to offer at the moment I think your knife looks pretty good.
