In the dangerous tunnels of your home beneath ground, staying alive requires keeping all your senses on high alert. Your dark elf ears are trained to pick up even the faintest of sounds in the darkness, your hands ready by your Dark Elven Throwing Knife Holder should you need to defend yourself from some beast or being.
So, when you hear the silvery tongue call out to you, “Hello, friend,” you are not so quick to let down your guard. While the other dark elf approaching you is an old acquaintance, you also heard the crossbow bolt being slid into place–now hidden behind her back.
Epic Armoury’s Dark Elven Throwing Knife Holder comes with a knife, and is specifically designed to store and protect an Epic Armoury Dark Elven Throwing Knife weapon. The handmade holder attaches to any belt or baldric thanks to the two leather ties. An additional leather loop slides around the knife and is secured with a button, keeping your weapon inside the holder even during rough combat.
Made from black full-grain leather, brass eyelets, and reinforced stitching around the edges, this weapon holder is built to keep its shape and withstand the abuse of a LARP with regular leather care.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
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.
