||TIN CUP - Handmade to the specifications of an original soldier's
cup from the French & Indian War period as shown on page 49,
SKBK. Over 1 pint capacity. #TINC $13.00 each. Now, also available
in stainless steel. #TINCSS $16.00 each
||TIN PLATE - As we have not yet found a satisfactory quality true
tin plate product, we have now switched to stainless steel. No longer
will you have to anguish over plates that rust after just a few
uses. These 9-1/2 inch plates have a deeply dished center with nicely
rolled edges. They are much too shiny, so we provide a sheet of
fine grit sandpaper, which will do wonders to the finish in about
5 minutes of your time. #TPL9 $8.00 each
||“TIN” COFFEE POT - Capacity is almost 3 quarts. Handcrafted
of stainless steel to a traditional 18th century style. This larger
size is offered specifically for use in a camp where smaller sizes
just won't do. #COFPSS $70.00 each
||WOOD LADLE - Here is a handy utensil to help serve soup, stew
or hot liquid refreshments. Factory made of light colored European
wood, about 15 inches long with a bowl a little over 3 inches in
diameter. We recommend keeping such items oiled to prevent cracking.
Mineral oil is recommended over vegetable oil that can go rancid
over time. See EACF, page 207, figure 905 for several ladle styles.
#LADL01 $13.00 each
||HAND MADE WOOD SPOON - We are pleased to offer hand carved poplar
spoons with an oiled finish. Poplar is a light, tight grained wood.
These have well defined bowls, unlike machine made spoons. About
8 inches long. See CENC, page 8 bottom for representative spoons
like these. #SPONHM $5.00 each
||HORN SPOON – Horn has been used for utilitarian objects
for thousands of years. The horn from cattle is harvested, heated
to soften, and split into workable sheets. These are high quality
molded from one piece of cattle horn. These six inch spoons have
an infinite variety of colors and markings. Horn is easy to wash,
as most foods won't stick to the smooth surface. They should NOT
be immersed in hot liquids for extended periods, as they may tend
to lose their shape. Soak in cool water overnight yearly to minimize
drying and cracking. See page 108 (bottom) of CENC for representative
horn spoons. #HOSP $6.00 each
||KNIFE & FORK SET – The table setting we offer here it
made of carbon steel with genuine white bone handles. The knife
is about 9 inches long and the fork is 7 inches long. Such items
have been excavated from Ft. Michilimackinac, Michigan, circa 1715
- 1781. See EACF, page 299 for examples of similar tableware. #KAF2
$25.00 per set
||TWISTED WIRE FORK - This type of crude fork was apparently in
wide use during the Revolutionary period, judging from the quantities
excavated from period camp sites. Ours are made in the forge of
hot twisted 1/8 inch wire. Points are hammered, not ground, to shape.
We have given ours a slight bow to the tines for esthetics. Approximately
7 inches long. See CENC, page 109, figure 19. #TWWF $5.00 each
||WOOD PLATE (TRENCHER) - A nicely turned eight inch diameter one
piece solid poplar plate with the traditional beaded rim that is
so typical of the period. We coat these with mineral oil to prolong
longevity and recommend periodic renewal of the coating. See EACF
page 227, figure 993 for representative trenchers. #TREP $14.00
||WOODEN BOWL - 8 inch diameter bowls turned from northern hardwoods
such as maple and birch. No markings to mar the authenticity. These
are lightly coated with mineral oil so they can be used immediately;
make sure to periodically reapply oil to prevent damage and prolong
the useful life. DO NOT dry by placing in direct sun. See EACF,
figure 996. #WB8 $18.00 each
||KITCHEN KNIFE - We are now able to offer a knife, which can be
used in front of the public without worrying about authenticity.
The carbon steel blade is fitted to a distinctive hexagon shaped
red painted wood handle. Blade is 7 inches long; overall length
is 11 1/2 inches. Ref. EACF, page 216, figure 943 for a similarly
shaped knife. These were apparently a significant trade item among
Native Americans. #KKN1 $12.00 each
||ROLLING PIN - Old traditional style tapered style without handles,
which is said gives better control. Made of hardwood (usually beech,
maple or ash). Approximately 18 inches long. See EACF page 214,
fig. 934. #RPIN $9.00 each.
||PEWTER MUG - We offer recycled pewter mugs of various configurations.
The illustration is typical of the styles we have in stock. Most
of them have glass bottoms and are made in England. If there was
any inscription, it has been carefully removed. No major dents or
dings. #PMUG $8.00 each
RUST FREE COOK KETTLES - These kettles are based on documented
descriptions from sources researched by John U. Rees and Stephen
Gilbert. Ours are now constructed of heavy gauge stainless steel,
with crimped and soldered seams. (The originals were sheet iron,
either tin plated or not). Each is equipped with a tapered hand
forged bail (handle) made from quarter inch round steel stock.
We offer three sizes that will nest nicely for ease of packing.
The sizes are:
10 by 10 ¾ ins., weighs 2 ¾ lbs. and holds 14
qts. #CAMK14 $64.00 each;
8-7/8 by 10-3/8 inches, weighs 2 ¼ lbs. and holds 11 qts.
#CAMK11 $59.00 each;
8 by 9-1/2 ins., weight 1 ¾ lbs. and holds 8 qts. #CAMK8
||WASH PAN or MILK PAN – An ideal vessel for washing dishes.
Ours are made in imitation of old tinplate, but are stainless steel
so you will never have to worry about rust. Dimensions are 14 inches
across the top, 10 inches across the bottom and 4-1/2 inches deep.
Samples of these items can be seen in EACF, page 282, figure 1242.
#WASHPAN $48.00 each
||SPIDER – (THREE LEGGED SKILLET) Very heavy 9 1/2 inch diameter
pan formed from 3/32 inch thick steel, with 6 inch legs and 15 inch
handle forged by the blacksmith. Dark burnt oil finish. Well suited
to either the campfire or kitchen hearth. See CENC, page 91, figure10.
Call for availability. #SPID $60.00
||POT SCRUBBER -This very utilitarian tool is made from tightly
bound, stiff broom corn. Many people find this works extremely well
on cast iron, wood items, etc. This is primitive enough to be at
home in any context. #POTS $3.00 each
