Let us speak plainly. You are one of the most intimidating warriors anyone has ever seen. When you stride up on your horse and join the fray of war, the soldiers part to give you room.
Perhaps it is simply the impressive armour you wear, your great sword secured on your back in a Sky Hook. Perhaps the air of legend around you is only due to inflated rumor. But, between us? You also have formidable skill, and for that your reputation is well founded.
Epic Armoury’s Sky Hook offers an alternate method of carrying your weapon, providing more support than a standard waist belt. Using full-grain brown leather, this specialized baldric is designed to strap around the torso, and is both durable and attractive. The leather straps are secured across the chest in an X-design, while the scabbard itself sits at a diagonal across the back. Slide your sword or large axe through the holder, resting its tip inside the chape and its crossguard (or axe head) inside the two hooks. This design allows for easy placement and removal of your weapon quickly, while also keeping the scabbard in place while you fight.
Almost any outfit will benefit from this clever weapon holder, especially if you desire an epic fantasy appearance. For those who are left-handed, the Sky Hook’s scabbard and belts can be untied and reversed so that your weapon will sit over your left shoulder instead of your right.

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.
