How Black Beard Carried All Those Weapons!
Over the past decade, I have received numerous requests for a baldric/harness system to carry a surplus of weapons like Blackbeard. I have studied what history says he wore, but most of what is available is based in hearsay n' artist interpretation of what he may have looked like, all illustrated by those who have not actually have seen Edward Teach. Each version looks different. The difficulty in making an accurate weapons holding system that visually recreates what many artists have illustrated is that an artist can draw anything they like without having to consider the logistics of gravity n' actually having to carry around an armoury of weapons all day on them, while we have to consider what can be realistically worn on the body.
I have crafted four different versions developed over time. There be a shipload of issues I have had to deal with, such as:
I be happy to announce that I am finally content with the newest version that solves all these issues. I was trying to solve the problem of our larger belts sliding down on men with larger bellies n' narrow hips, so I added suspenders to the Men's Treasure Belt. Pirates didn't really wear suspenders, as they had not been invented yet, but we adjusted the look by adding holsters to the suspenders so they look ' operate like gun harness instead. Using the "D" ring clip to connect accessories made the entire Black Beard Weapon Harness work.
Watch me draw, fire n' holster 6 pistols then draw a cutlass n' dagger all in under 30 seconds.
