|A cow's knees is used to keep the lock covered to keep water from getting in the priming pan. |
I wet formed poster board for the pattern, then cut out the oak tanned leather from the dried and flattened paper pattern. Saddle stitched with tapered thread from Springfield Leather Company, Inc.
The knee includes a welt, was sewn 'wrong side to wrong side,' then turned inside out and wet formed to the lock.
Finished with dye and a beeswax, mink oil and pine pitch compound.
