The snows have come, but despite the cold your village still depends on you to defend it from hungry raiders. The northern winters can be harsh, making men and women particularly desperate.
Thankfully, your axe is secure and safe in your Black Fur Holder. You keep it close at hand as you patrol the walls, pulling your cloak close to keep away the biting wind. At least it is easy to spot incoming trouble against the pure white of snow. You’ll see anyone coming.
Epic Armoury’s Black Fur Holder is a leather frog designed to keep your weapon handy, yet out of the way during movement. This decorative frog is 12 cm long and will accommodate a weapon up to 5 cm in diameter. Soft black faux fur has been added to the inside of the hoop to protect your weapon, also providing just enough resistance to keep your weapon from falling out without making it difficult to withdraw.
Match this Black Fur Holder with any character you wish to equip by securing the holder to your belt through the 4.5 cm belt loop. Made from chrome-tanned full-grain leather, stitched around the edges, and reinforced with brass studs, this weapon holder is built to keep its shape and withstand the abuse of a LARP with regular leather care.
This Black Fur Holder is designed to be used by a right-handed player.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
