TK-001  Colonial Angling Kit   Fishing was a popular pastime during the early years in our country because equipment needs were simple and our unpolluted rivers and streams were virtually teeming with fish. A person did not have to be wealthy to enjoy fishing - with little more than a hook and line and a little free time a person could enjoy the thrill of catching fish and putting food on the table. Our Fishing Kit includes all the traditional elements necessary to enjoy this truly Colonial experience: genuine silk line, actual gut leader, hooks with a traditional flattened end to tie onto the leader, a few pieces of lead to take your bait to the denizens of the deep, a small cork to act as a strike indicator, and a small round tin in which to store your fishing tackle.   $8.00



CO-021  4-Piece Trekking Set    This handy set has everything a trekker needs for preparing meals while on the trail. It includes a small pouring pot with spout, strainer and pouring tab on back, a small copper cup which can be used as another cooking cup or mixing bowl (the lid fits both the pot and the cup), a redware ceramic cup for drinking hot beverages or soup, and a horn spoon. Sets like this are currently being carried by a few of our Warriors in the mountains of Afghanistan – these troops are also living history re-enactors when they are at home with us.    $110.00

CO-006  Corn Boiler    This pot measures 4 ½” in diameter by 4-¾” tall and will pack well inside a haversack or bedroll. A popular pot with those who trek. Holds 1 quart.    $69.00


CO-007  Insert    Absolutely the most popular pot and best-seller! This great little pot handles most of the needs a person has while on a trek, a “bare bones” camp out, a day’s hunt, or an extended scout. It also fits inside the corn boiler so that the two pots can be used to cover about all your cooking needs. This little pot is lightweight, rugged and reliable. Holds 2 cups.    $65.00


CO-008  5x3    This dandy little pot falls into the same category as the Insert listed above. It is a variation of the insert in that it is another good “one man” pot that will nest inside the slightly larger 6x 3 ½” pot (which also nests inside the 7x4” pot). The 5x3” pot is easy to pack and will not tip over easily if you need to set it on a bed of uneven coals.    $65.00

CO-015  Trade Kettle    Trade Kettles were popular among all people in the early days of our country’s history. These lightweight kettles are good choices for camp or on the trail. The small kettle on the left in the photo holds 26-ounces. It measures 4-3/4” across the base x 3½” across the top x 4½” tall.    $71.00


CO-016  Trade Kettle    The larger kettle on the right in the photo holds holds 42-ounces. It measures 5-7/8” across the base x 4¾” across the top x 4½” tall.    $75.00

CO-014 CO-014  Canteens    These canteens are made just the way those found at various historic sites during archaeological investigations. Available in two sizes, the small one holds 32-ounces while the large one holds approximately 56-ounces. Available with or without thimbles soldered on the sides for attaching a carrying rope. Some users prefer not having the thimbles or loops on the side as they want to sew their own wool cover for carrying the canteen. Canteens do not come with stoppers. While many users just put a cork in the spout, originally, a sassafras stopper was whittled to seal the canteen. This stopper was carved from dried sassafras a little undersize so that when it became wet, the wood swelled and made a good seal. These canteens are all priced the same so please specify size and whether or not you want thimbles on the canteen. Canteens are made of plain copper, not tin lined – use for water only   $70.00


TK-002  Horn Spoons    Made from genuine cow horn, these spoons are of the type used for hundreds of years. Sizes: Standard, short, small, very small. Short spoons seem to be preferred by trekkers. Standard size is about 6 inches in length. Very small spoon is less than 3 inches. Please specify desired size.    $3.00 each (any size)

CS-013  Sundial Compass   This very nice all brass sundial compass incorporates two instruments in one. Instructions are engraved on the bottom of the compass case. Engraved on the inside of the friction fit lid is a scale for determining time in various locations around the world. No matter where you are in the world, this instrument can be used accurately on sunny days. This makes an interesting and useful addition to your historical kit. The case is made of solid brass suitable for having your name engraved on the lid. The brass is untreated which means that it will tarnish in a most historical fashion.   $25.00


PA-008  Homespun Cotton Scarf    Nothing flashy here – just plain, old fashioned cotton triangles used for head scarves, neck scarves, cravats, bandanas, and traditional face protection in dust storms. Our scarves are generously cut – 54 inches across the long points – so that, in a pinch, they can also be used for a triangular bandage or arm sling. Colors and patterns vary. Please specify your choice: solid color or colored pattern.    $6.00

FW-023  Trekker's Fire Making Kit   This lightweight Fire Making Kit is ideal for Trekkers wanting to limit the weight of the gear they carry with them in their haversack or belt pouch. This kit uses a French-style oval striker made of high carbon tool steel and includes a sharp piece of French Amber Flint. Two kinds of tinder are provided: traditional flax tow and jute rope. There are enough pieces of char cloth stored under the striker and beneath the tinder to make at least a dozen fires. Weight of this compact kit is about three ounces.   $15.00

FW-020 FW-020  Fire Making Kit   Contained in a handy round tin can with a friction-fit lid, our Fire Making Kit contains everything needed for starting a fire in a traditional manner. The 4-inch round tinder box includes a “C” Style Fire Steel, flint, a generous amount of flax tow for tinder, and approximately 12 pieces of cotton char cloth. Of all the tools we offer, this represents a “touch stone” with history, a most ancient technology - one that can be traced back 5,000 years in man’s history. People who are unfamiliar with this form of fire making often times watch in amazement as a fire is kindled in this manner, as if magic or some sort of sorcery was used.   $20.00

FW-029  Charcloth   For the individual who does not have the time to make his or her own char cloth, we offer this convenient pack of at least 30 pieces of 100% cotton char cloth to be used with flint and steel for fire making. While there is no great mystery to making good char cloth, now and then it happens that an outdoor event slips up on a person before there is time to make a batch of char. This solves the problem.   $1.00

TK-003 TK-003  Fire Chain    This handy device takes up little room in your haversack and is handy to have once you have set up camp for the night and are ready to prepare your meal. The chain is approximately four feet long and has two small hooks - one on each end. One hook is used to secure a green stick tripod, the other hook holds the pot itself at the desired height over the fire. The chain and its handy pouch weigh a total of four ounces. The sturdy pouch will keep any soot the chain might collect from getting on other items in your haversack.   $8.00

TK-004  Agate Arrowheads    These are genuine stone arrowheads hand made from agate. The reason they are as inexpensive as they are is that they are imported. If you have an interest in primitive archery and would like to try your hand at hafting a stone point to the end of your arrow, these may just be what you are looking for. Average length is about an inch.   $1.50
