2021 CLA Live Auction: Hunting Pouch and Knife by Gary Tingler and Travis Bauer


 This well-crafted hunting pouch with a bag knife in a detachable sheath are the result of a collaboration between Gary Tingler and Travis Bauer.  The medium sized southern style bag is made from brain tanned elk hide, an uncommon material with a nice weight and feel.  Gary sewed this up with waxed linen thread and the bag knife sheath is attached with a copper button. The flap has a cartouche of rattlesnake skin setting it off.


Travis Bauer contributed this exceptional bag knife with hand-forged 5-inch long blade and antler handle.  This set goes together well and has great visual appeal with the dark strap and welting contrasting with the elk hide bag and detachable sheath.
