You’re the first to spot the sails o’ a ship on the horizon, and so the chase begins. You and your crewmates have a reputation as the most formidable pirates on the sea, and it’s time to defend your title.
You board the merchant’s ship with your cutlass at the ready. They have heard o’ your flag before, and so they be surrendering smartly. Good. This be easy loot! You and your crew pack what plunder you can find before a Royal Navy ship can come along, but as you pass the miserable captain you notice the leather pouch on his belt. You imagine it filled with coins as you snatch it from the man.
Even better than coin, you find a mighty fine Telescope inside!
Epic Armoury’s Telescope with a Leather Pouch is an extendable telescope made from brass and finished with top-grain leather. The telescope extends to 16 cm length and is functional, providing 2x magnification.
The telescope comes with a fine leather pouch in brown leather. The pouch is tied shut with a leather cord, keeping the telescope safe even when you are most active. Attach the pouch to a belt or vest thanks to a leather strap fitted securely on its back.
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.
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.
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.
