A big fan of the Viking and was looking for a way of getting a belt from that period, need someone good at leather work :thumbsup: can get most of the fittings online anyone one hear fancy a challenge no names mentioned :silent: anyway managed to get a good quality leather tool belt and some period mounts 3 was a lucky number for the Viking so I was told so grouped them in three’s, it looks good but could do with some more details in the Viking style bit of embossing or burning with some Viking knott work if that the right term I am pleased so far but work in progress :thumbsup:

Don’t know about the cows but as tool belts go and being in the trade for over 30years best leather tool belts on the market check them out at https://www.occidentalleather.com/about-us.php
I went for them as they are wide at the back like a Weight lifters belt great for lumber support You know how much silver i have to carry :D
