It’s been a long day trecking across the countryside, and you are famished. You and your party finally settle down to make camp and start dinner. It’s your favourite part of the journey--eating warm food thanks to a comforting fire surrounded by friends!
As the rations are passed around, you remove the Cutlery from your belt. You are always prepared for a meal, fork and knife at the ready.
Epic Armoury’s Cutlery with Leather Hanger is a set of eating utensils, including a knife, spoon and two-pronged fork. Made from rough, darkened steel, each handle is uniquely wrought near the head and end to give it character and a superior grip.
This Cutlery is safe to use and perfect when you want to maintain immersion. This set includes a handy leather pouch made from top-grain leather that is stitched around the edges, preventing it from deforming with excessive use. Keep your cutlery safe by securing the pouch’s chain hook through a leather loop, keeping the lid closed. Attach the pouch to your belt, sash, or bag for ready use.
Available in Brown and Black leather.

Epic Armoury metal works products should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage. All our metal armours contain leather parts that need regular maintenance using leather-care products to keep the leather from drying out.
If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible.
After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality machine or mineral oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.
Rust-Prevention and Removal
Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in paste wax, oil, or water-displacing liquid.
Leather Straps and Fittings
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.
