The legging Knife.

My legging knife.


This is how I have always carried my legging knife.

This is a modern artists interpretation of how the legging knife was worn, tied to the garter.

Then recently I came across this image, which appears to be a period image, but there was no provenance for it.

That's right Gorges, that is what experimental archaeology is all about.
