Drake Armguard leather red kids
Top quality leather arm guard made exclusively for The Longbow Shop.
Dragonscale create high quality, handmade leather goods for archers. All their leather is carefully hand selected from vegetable tanned hides.
It is then carved, tooled and dyed by hand before being finished to a high lustre. As is the nature of leather, being a natural product, it is subject to variances in appearance and may have individual markings which relate to its origins and add character to each piece.
Drake Bracers & Pocket Quivers
Unfortunately no dragon leather was available so they had to improvise! Hand tooled dragon scales adorn these rugged, custom made armguards and pocket quivers. Cut from selected 4-5oz veg tan leather then hand tooled, stitched & dyed, they will last a lifetime with proper care. They finish their items with a natural beeswax finish, which is then polished to a sheen to waterproof & protect.
How do I care for my pocket quiver or armguard?
Dragonscale recommend using a beeswax based leather conditioner such as Fiebing’s Aussie conditioner on a regular basis to waterproof and soften. Avoid oil based products & shoe polish – they finish their products with beeswax to seal, protect and finish to a high lustre. Some polishing products can eat through the wax and damage the finish.
The dyes are spirit and water based and some may run if soaked – be sure to proof your items before going out in bad weather.
Please note that conditioners and waxes will darken the items which is usually temporary but depends on the conditioner used.
