It could put that special mark on the outfit of someone from North America and still be within the bounds of tradition.

    Thanks
    I have a fair amount of hide. If you want a piece for a sporran, send me a private message. I would be happy to send you a piece.

    Now that's what this forum is all about. I had a sporran made years ago by our own Artificer from a prime male beaver I trapped and gave the remaining pelt to an XMarker who had his sporran made by -- Artificer, or course. Good for you, Nighthawk

    Hey! That's what forum is all about. Artificers work is as good as mine! I would love one of his sporrans. They are unique.

    That is extraordinarily generous of you Nighthawk!
    I'm grateful beyond words!
    Now that I'm at a computer, I'll send you a PM shortly.

    Thank you sir.
