    Work of love turned to hate?
    :)
    That bag must have taken lots of hours of thought, p,anning and actual manufacture.

    Thanks. As with all custom orders the price depends on the details. I can make much more basic packs for around £300/£400 mark but one with this much detail would be closer to £500/£600.

    As for the pullover, It was found in a charity shop years ago (got a wardrobe crammed full of various wool goodies from charity shops)

    Sounds very reasonable indeed considering the craftsmanship and time involved.:)

    Beautiful Hamish :D it really is.
    Lovely bit of work there, not just in design but in the whole creation.

    Its a wonderful bag and I hate to be negative; but I would be fearful of it getting stolen. it sticks out too much

    Do you see this glass? I love this glass.
    It holds the water admirably.
    When the sun shines on it, it reflects the light beautifully.
    When I tap it, it has a lovely ring.
    Yet for me, this glass is already broken. When the wind knocks it over or my elbow knocks it off the shelf and it falls to the ground and shatters, I say, ‘Of course.’
    But when I understand that this glass is already broken, every minute with it is precious.

    Very nice and very you. I do like the antler tip detail.

    As for it being a target for theft its not going to be hard to ID so would be of zero interest to anyone in the so-called Bushcrafting Community.

    That is absolutely stunning work, really like that. I'm also impressed that you're using it as well, I hate owning gear just to look at and i think too many folk would be afraid of taking that work of art outside. Saying that I also think it's going to get better and better looking as it's used.

    I'd love to see this bag after 30 or 40 years of use. I bet it will look beautiful :cool:

    It simply is beautiful!!
    High level craftsmenship and very pleasing to the eye!

    I just hope the antler will hold. No idea about its strength.
