    For sale: New day hunt Powder Horn: $ 75.00 +$8.00 shipping and handling.

    She’s a beauty and crafted to look Ooooold. A 1700’s horn right out of the pages of history. This is a relatively straight horn. It can be worn on either side. The horn measures 5-1/2” across the curve from spout tip to cap base, it measures 8-1/2”around the curve from tip to cap base, so you can see that it’s fairly straight. The horn has an Oak cap stained dark brown, and a dark Brown turned Maple finial with my non-sparking brass 3/8”-16 threaded plug for easy filling. The horn is “colored” with my custom mix of dyes to give it that authentic 1700’s Fur Trapper/Mountain Man look. It’s fitted with a beautiful hand crafted 7/8” wide fully; adjustable, prime quality, leather strap with belt keeper and Nickle plated Conway buckle. The strap is dark Brown in color. Great for carrying at your next Rendezvous. This Two Feathers horn, WILL get you noticed! The horn is ideal for carrying just enough powder for a day of hunting or a woods walk, no extra weight. I haven’t checked it out, but I think it’ll hold about 1/3 of a pound of powder? That’s more than enough to hunt for the day, unless you’re a lousy shot. :+))))

    The horn cap sports an Iron staple where it attaches to the strap with a nice Antique rivet. The Pour spout plug is carved White Tail antler and attached to the horn for loss prevention with a length of sinew. There is a 3/8” band of 3 oz. Brown leather wrapped around the horn tip in a carved channel. It is tightly wrapped with artificial Sinew. It is stitched to the main strap with artificial sinew. The pour spout end is rounded for easier pouring into your powder measure. The cap is attached with Copper Tacks. The whole cap is wax sealed for water resistance with an 80/20 mixture of Bees wax and paraffin.
    I know there are cheaper powder horns out there, but you get what you pay for. My accoutrements are made by me; here in my NE Pennsylvania shop, from American sourced materials, not in some third world country.

    I accept PayPal, certified bank checks, and postal money orders. Money orders and bank checks will add about 2 weeks to the turn around time. I ship the same day as money is received, (exceptions) Sundays and Federal Holidays. If you’re interested, please contact me here davesmusic13@gmail.com or through the website. As always, thanks for looking.

    God bless:

    So when you say "cap",, do you mean the horn plug?
    And the "finial" is the wood part with the brass threads glued in?
    How did you cut brass machine threads to the wooden "Oak" cap? Just a common tap?
    How does a wood plug machine threaded for a brass threaded tube have a,, "authentic 1700’s Fur Trapper/Mountain Man look"?
    Just curious.

    Yes, I was referring to the horn plug as the cap, sorry for the mis-speak. The threads were cut into the Oak with a simple 3/8-16 tap, then I reinforce the threads with super glue to strengthen them. The Brass all-thread is pinned in with a maple pin. You're right, there's NOTHING period correct about brass all-thread, that was just added for ease of filling. The authentic 1700’s Fur Trapper/Mountain Man look I was referring to; was the overall look, the copper nails, the horn's color, the leather strap, the wax sealing, etcetera. I'm terribly sorry if I caused the purists on the forum any anxiety with my description!
    I've been making my powder horns this way since 1977, and have never had any complaints. People like the easy removable finial for filling. I guess function just beat out form? My apologies. I'm new here and I didn't come looking for a fight or to dupe anyone with my things. Each person who views my wares, has the right/opportunity to "take it with a grain of salt" over what he or she feels is "authentic." Thank you for letting me explain. Maybe this isn't the right place for me? I feel like I'm back on the FML website. Take care necchi.

    We ALL spend too much at Christmas. :~)))) Maybe later on you'll find some "extra" funds? :~))))) I appreciate your good feedback. Thank you. it gives me a reason to keep making things and posting them here. I'm new here, but I'm really OLD. I have an nice Arkansas Toothpick Bowie in the works. I'm hoping to have it finished soon, so I can list it on the Edged Weapons forum. Be well.
