    Help Making A "special" Sporran

    I have a design for a sporran I want to make (or have made). The basic premise is having a kydex shell inside the sporran to carry my pistol. I have the kydex shell. Just need help designing the sporran. Are there any tutorials?

    New cantles

    Hi We've just designed a completely new range of cantles for your sporran, now when I say completely new, it really means completely different. I'd just like to hear your comments about what you think of them, good or bad! Thanks

    Full Mask Sporrans

    Just a quick post to say I've got some full mask (and non masked) sporrans available in my store just now. All animals are either roadkill, ethically sourced from zoos or were shot as food by local gamekeepers. Have a look if you fancy www.thedapperdead.com

    Newbie hello!

    Hi all! I just joined up today as I came across this site whilst shopping for cantle makers. I live in the Highlands of Scotland and I make full mask and traditional style sporrans for a living! I'm also a vegetarian so all of my fur and leather is sourced from roadkill, deceased zoo animals and vintage shops. When I'm not sporran making I'm generally with one of the many animals and I also shoot weddings with my boyfriend who is a pro photographer. So how I have the time to be on here I don't really know... Anyway just joined because I love seeing how everyone wears their kilts around the world - the variations even here in Scotland are huge. Looking forward to saying hi to everyone

    Mistletoe Sporran

    I've just been reading Kiltology Volume II. Number 215 mentions a "mistletoe sporran". Where can I buy one? This is something that would be really useful and I don't want to wait until Christmas! Anyone know a source?

    Concealed Carry Sporran

    Ok, so I just recently started wearing the kilt as my primary form of dress an started wondering what the best way to conceal carry would be. Most, if not all of the typical day wear sporrans are too small to carry anything much larger than a derringer and still have room for my wallet, phone and keys. On my last trip to my local range I asked at that shop if they knew anyone who did good work on holster and could modify one for me to fit a kilt belt and maybe handle some customer work as well. They told me to speak to Marshall Hall (HallHolster@gmail.com). I met with him and he was able to quickly modify a holster for my H&K to fit a kilt belt without any issue so I spoke to him about making a sporran specifically to hold my EDC but still give me the ability to move the holster that came with to a normal 1" belt and he came through with no issues at all. My favorite part of this whole thing is that while I can still cc there is room for my wallet, phone, keys a spare mag and room to get things in and out without making a big deal of what going on in there. You can see a comparison of the CC Sporran -v- a Day Sporran I have on my Facebook page or at: http://www.pinterest.com/nachtzehrer/cc-sporran-by-marshall-hall/ If you're interested in talking to Marshall about holsters and cc options he can be reached at: HallHolster@gmail.com

    New Skunk Sporran Has Arrived!

    I posted this in my other thread but I figured I should start a proper thread to show it off!! It's made of two seperate pelts, one for the sides and the front, the back is leather...
  9. I have been wanting a piss kitty sporran for quite some time now and the stars have finally lined up for me, a fellow who works in the leather and fur business makes a few sporrans as a casual hobby, I contacted him and arranged a skunk pelt sporran to be made at his leisure.... It's due to be completed next week so I figure I would post a teaser pic of the pelt to whet your appetite!!! A full review and action photos to follow once it arrives!!

    Altering A Sporran

    I was at a flea market yesterday and managed to pick up a coyote fur (just the head) that seems perfect for the flap of a sporran. I'm thinking I can somehow attach it to an inexpensive leather sporran. have any of you had any success doing such a thing? any advice? what kind of glue might I use to attach the fur to the sporran?

    My New Punisher Sporran!

    Just walked in the door after a delayed red-eye flight home from Las Vegas to find a little box from Wyvern Leatherworks on my kitchen counter. Inside I found an amazing piece of work that I cannot wait to wear! I snapped a couple of quick and dirty pictures - there will be more after I take a nap for a few hours... 1 hour of non-consecutive sleep in the last 24 hours is no good, but I couldn't wait to show this beauty off! *Note - the pouch/body of the sporran is not spread out, I just literally took it out of the box and took a picture before posting this and going to bed. Scroll down a few posts to see what it actually looks like. these pictures don't do it justice - I'll post better ones once I'm functional EDIT: Better picture that I took later that day:

    My First Sporran

    My first sporran. I made it out of deer hide purchased on ebay. So let me have it, what do you all think?!
  13. Hi All, it's been quite the busy week here. As some of you know I have a passion for sporran styles that are otherwise extinct, and brass cantle sporrans are probably my favorite. I just put the finishing touches on a new cantle style. Classic round top in a buttery-soft oxblood leather with brass studded targe. With a matching strap Front Detail of the cantle Hopefully somewhere in the next two or three cantles I'll get to do one of the trick latches where at least one other action is required before the piece can be opened. I've got two alternate designs worked up, both based on original mechanisms. As always, constructive commentary is most welcome.
  14. This one just rolled off my bench and is on it's way to the other side of the world. The cantle is based on a C 1750-1800 cantle I was asked to restore. I had to both straighten some previous damage as well as craft a few bag. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.332109966835099.71365.161816873864410&type=3 The original was cast bronze (which is how it was possible to get such a deeply cut design). The new version is built up of silver soldered sheet brass and an oil and wax finished tooled cowhide bag.
  15. Time to update with oodles more stuff- An ex-MoD Brass Cantle Sporran re-bag, in a VERY active leather- A custom built functional (hinged) brass cantle sporran in a dark chocolate brown cowhide The same style cantle with a tooled and brogued Victorian style bag A nice detail shot of the knotwork, pinking, and brogueing.

    Elk Sporran

    I just received the distressed ( maybe because it's dead ) elk sporran and I have to say it has exceeded my expectations . The quality , thought and craftsmanship that has been put into this product is simple spectacular . I had a sporran from usa kilt which was actually kinda embarrassing to wear but now that is a non issue as it will be repurposed as a planter . Now I am lookin forward to a full mask maybe , mink , badger or skunk or how about armadillo ?? Thank you for the quality product and quality service. Shayne
  17. After a very stressful week dealing with US Fish & Wildlife I have a few "Heads Up" pieces of advice for our forumites and registered businesses who deal across the US border. ANY part of ANY non-domesticated (farm) animal falls under the jurisdiction of US Fish & Wildlife. ANY Part. Bone or horn handles on knives or as buttons or pins. Any fur, leather, claw or feather from animals other than farm/domestic animals (being cow, horse, sheep, goat, or pig) falls under their jurisdiction. They regulate and have sole control (above and beyond US CUSTOMS) to inspect these products. I know this because I've spent the last week clearing up the paperwork and filing for the appropriate license when a random customs check opened a fur sporran and sent it to USF&W. They were very polite and helpful, but the process still ended up taking a week. As I said, they were quite helpful, and I didn't incur any fines (probably because it was clearly labeled on the Customs form- so it's pretty obvious I wasn't trying to smuggle it) nor did they impound/confiscate the piece. In fact, it was probably one of the smoothest interactions I've had with the Federal Government where paperwork is concerned. There is an annual Import/Export License that needs to be obtained ($100), and your product must be shipped to one of their ports of clearance for inspection (which also costs $93US as of Jan01 2012). This applies to incoming materials as well. The only exception is for personal use. Obviously I don't need to get into the legal ramifications of declaring an item a "Gift" in order to dodge Customs, Tariffs, or Inspections. I'm not a lawyer, so please don't take any of this as "Legal" advice, but as an experience to learn from so you don't make the same mistake. If you charge for your product and ship it across the US border, whether or not you are a licensed business or "just a guy", this applies to you. Hopefully you can use this warning to help determine if or how you choose to sell across borders. EDIT: Also, please note that this may apply to purchases made in the US that you might be planning to take home to other countries, if the animal falls under the C.I.T.E.S. Treaties. For purchasers, make sure that you're allowed to transport your purchase back home and that the maker/vendor has included documentation of species to ease your border crossing home. Cheers
  18. You should never ever ask a kiltie what is in his sporran. he just might show you. ****Do not repost this without also posting a link to this page*****
  19. As many of you may be aware, finding functional brass cantles is a challenging task, to say the very least. Apart from a few antique ones that occasionally come up for sale on eBay (and go for a MINT) the only option out there was to find an ex-MoD cantle from the 1950s-60's and make a new bag for it. Even these cantles are now running several hundred dollars on auction sites. Last year I started working on the idea of having a run of cantles cast, and got all the way through the first test pour before things didn't work out with my smith & foundry. I didn't let that little setback defeat me too much. I'm now building the cantles the more commonly seen way. This one was commissioned to resemble an antique piece I had done some restoration work on. Cut Brazed First polish I had to buff out a few tooling marks, and am currently working my way up to +2000g polishing compound. The turnings for the hinges and the top knob should be arriving today at which point I'll cut the threads for and assemble the spring-latch that keeps the mouth closed. Next up on my list will probably be the half-octagon on the right (below) As always constructive commentary or critique is welcome.
