Skinner Knife & Holder
With luck--and some skill--you manage to catch a rabbit in one of your snares. You think to yourself that it’s a wonder that some wolf hasn’t already caught such a fat morsel. As you sling it over your shoulder and head home, you expect your own family is going to be thrilled at the wolf’s loss.
You skin the creature outside the front step of your modest home using your knife, usually stored safely in your Skinner Knife Holder. You save the fur to be made into something useful. With a few more skilled flicks of your knife, your rabbit is ready for the stew.
Epic Armoury’s Brown Skinner Knife Holder comes with a knife, and is specifically designed to hold the curved Epic Armoury Skinner Knife throwing weapon. The handmade holder attaches to the belt or armour using two leather ties. A leather strap buttons over the knife, keeping it secure even in rough fights.
Made from brown full-grain leather and reinforced stitching around the edges, this weapon holder is built to keep its shape and withstand the abuse of a LARP with regular leather care.
Available in Black and Brown.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
