Double Pouch with Powder Horn Set by Eric Van Alstine

This is a double pouch made from calf skin with a floral print cotton lining. The printed cotton was dyed with walnuts to give it an aged look. The pouch itself measures 8.5 inches wide and each pouch is 6.5 inches deep. There's a small internal pock on the back pouch as well.

The knife I made is from 1084 steel, with a turned walnut handle which measures with a 5 inch blade. the knife overall is about at 8.5 inches. The sheath for the knife includes a steel tip with peened over rivets.

The powder measure is of a deer antler tip, which has a small pocket on the back of the strap to tuck it away when not in use. The horn has one heat applied ring at that base with simple geometric designs around the base as well. The flow and design are simple yet tasteful but not to distract from the pouch itself. 

This would be a great set for anyone heading into the woods or at historic reenactments.
