18th century Blackjacks

As you may have seen on this page, I also make replica 18th century blackjacks , not the modern type with the handles sewn onto the outside , but authentic replicas of what blackjacks used to look like in the 18th century.  These are not easy items to produce but I really enjoy the challenge of crafting them. Currently on the bench is a blackjack I am working on with has a leather filler in the handle , this was sometimes used when extra thick leather was not available.
