Smoke Signals

JAN/FEB 2011


We will try and provide accurate descriptions as well as good assessments of each item reviewed. If the article to be reviewed isn't of better or best quality we will not bother you with reporting on lower level equipage.

We would like to  address the "primitive wares" (hint - title) that one needs or would like to have with the camp equipage or personal gear carried. Several of us have gone the gamut of such items over the years and I personally have had as much or more than most. 

 Maker of Fine Museum Reproduction Hunting Pouches, Haversacks, Wallets, and more.

Thank you for asking about my on-line business " Longhunter Leather Company". 

I carry an assortment of pouches, haversacks, canteens and other*accouterments to meet your reenacting/trekking needs. I also carry a nice selection of "Period Edibles" with plenty of choices for camp and trail. Should you decide to make a purchase it will be my continued goal to provide you with a period correct, museum quality handmade product at a reasonable price. Again, thank you for your continued support, encouragement and admonishment.
