Baldric, Leather Harking
back to an earlier age, the Baldric represented a piece of equipment
that was approaching its demise by the American Civil War. Designed for
the NCO to hold both his sword and his bayonet, the Baldric was made of
heavy leather fastened at the breast by a circular shoulder belt eagle
plate with three attachment hooks on the reverse. The hip end was
fashioned with a loop for holding the sword scabbard and another for the
bayonet scabbard frog to inset and attach. Federal Baldric Plate NOT included! Available in Bridle (Smooth Out) or Rough Out Leather. Made by our Master Leathersmith in Gettysburg, PA.
