HOLDER KING - BLACK/BROWN - R-HAND
Item no: IF-101533
Ethereal, Epic Armoury
A King deserves the attention of his subjects--his position and power demand such respect--but you also know he must look the part. You have hired the finest craftsmen in your land to create everything you will need.
Your King Holder is a frog embellished with stitched leather and a star design, reinforced with brass studs. It easily carries your elegant sword at your side. A purple cloak drapes down from your sturdy, confident shoulders. Everything about you is built to last. No one shall look upon you with anything but admiration.
You, after all, are the King.
Epic Armoury’s King Holder is a leather frog designed to keep your weapon handy, yet out of the way during movement. Decorated with angled stitching to create a star-shaped design, this frog is 11 cm long, open at both ends, and will accommodate a weapon up to 5 cm in diameter. Soft split-leather 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.
The King Holder goes particularly well with Epic Armoury’s King armour set, but is compatible with any character equipment 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 King 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.
