Leather drinking flask

I’ve also just finished a leather drinking flask. This is made from vegetable tanned leather, sewed with linen thread and waterproofed with beeswax. The stopper is hazel and the rope corded from jute.

The large flask holds one and a half pints, and the small flask on the right which I made as a prototype holds about a quarter of a pint. I might use it as a medicine flask or to carry a nip of whiskey for the long autumn nights!
