    MM do a few different styles - All around the £200 mark.

    I'm not quite sure what to think of the one with all the tassels



    I'd like to see it in one of the MM browns, to get a better idea.



    To me the 5-tassel Hunting sporran might benefit from a fur front.

    Agreed, I always understood that the whole point of the captive leaf style 'tassel' on a hunting style sporran was so that they didn't drum on the bag and scare the game off, not that I imagine many of us will be using them hunting game.

    USA Kilts actually has a fur-fronted hunting sporran, though it has sewn-down leaves rather than tassels.

    I received a new sporran this week!

    Though not vintage, nor from this thread, it was a steal at $150.00 brand new so I thought it fit with the theme of the thread. Made by MM, and secured from Celtic Croft for a very generous 50% Black Friday discount. I also picked up a Clan Fraser lapel pin, and a Fraser rosette sash for my fiancée.

    The question now is: to tassel, or not to tassel?

    Not to tassel! (My vote anyhow, if I get a vote.)

    About that MM Hunting with fur



    I don't care for the black, which for me pushes it into the Kilt Hire world a bit.

    I'd like to see that same sporran in one of the lovely MM browns, with Fox or Coyote fur front.

    To get this vibe somewhat. (In fact I've been considering ordering something along those lines from MM.)

    That would be a hell of a sporran, Richard. I agree on the browns - MM has so many nice ones! I also think I agree on the tasels - I don't very much like them, and have removed them from several sporrans now.

    MM Have been posting a lot of custom work on their facebook page recently - they are always worth a try if you want something a bit special

    Yes indeed, in fact a while back they posted these, which were very much what I had in mind.

    They acquired a vintage fur stole which provided enough fur for some sporrans, including this Hunting style
