Foxblade Trading is the trading name of Tod Booth. I am a qualified shoemaker and mechanical engineer. By putting these skills together, along with my historical knowledge I produce historically accurate accessories that are used by re-enactors world wide. I carry out displays and give talks on shoemaking and leatherwork through out history, as well as carrying out detailed research. I do my best to work from original examples or contemporary illustrations. I can also work to your designs.
As well as the range of items in this price list I specialise in making the unusual, I make what the customer wants at a reasonable cost. Unless otherwise stated all my work is completely hand made, I do not use machines for cutting, stitching or assembly. I have over 20 years experience as a leatherworker and studied and qualified as a shoemaker at Tresham Institute.
Additionally I manufacture turned wood items, small knives, LARP items. I can also supply 17th and 18th century costume.

Note that the examples below are only a small selection of the items I make, and I'm a lot better at making leatherwork than I am at building web sites.
