Virtual Baldric Braiding.
OK, I am not sure if this idea is going to work…but let’s give it a go.
I am going to post up a braid idea…then ask for folks to chime in with their ideas and thoughts.
So I will give a rough idea of the braid I want to do, you come back with how you might go about making it.
Normally I do a rough sketch of the project, and figure out my material needs. So in the next few posts I am asking any of you who are interested to submit your idea of the braid plan…
You can do a sketch like I do, or just type out your ideas whatever works.
After we get rolling with a few responses…I will chime in with thoughts and observations about your ideas (assuming there will be responses that is).
Once we have hashed this out a bit I will then post my braid plan and then later the baldric itself.
OK so here is a rough idea of the needed baldric:
Baldric has its roots in this one:
But this one is NOT to be adjustable in length and it will be permanently affixed to a dog lead type brass snap clip.
Item carried with this baldric will be more than just a light puukko, it could carry a small pouch.
Baldric should be able to carry a pound…or at most 2 pounds reasonably comfortably…but not designed for the usual Bushcraft stuffed bag-o-rama of junk.
The brass snap clip will be used to hook into rings on knife sheaths, or pouches, or even a larger ring that an ax handle might slip through.
Desired circumference is 56-57 inches.
This will be braided in 3mm Kangaroo leather.
So what is YOUR braid plan?
What sort of braid style, how much leather, how do you do any transitions, how do you hook it into the snap link?
