Duster - this may or may not help but although I don't know of any places that do red leather ones, if you were nifty with a bit of leatherwork I did see some red roe deer hides in Le Prevo in Newcastle the other week. Was tempted to get some myself for a scabbard covering but not quite big enough. Might do for you though. Just put Le Prevo in your browser and it should find it, and they sell widely on the net as well so no probs ordering from them.

Just a thought but hope it might help a bit.

All best,

P.R

Reading about that bit reminds me of something I have sitting, the beginnings of a 3 fingered gauntlet for chainmail to be attached. I was good and stitched the finger pads on inside out so that once i'm done they can be turned right way out and hide all the seams.

However!

Does anyone have any good tips on how to turn the fingers the right way out.

Push as much as you can with fingers, finish the job with an old biro
