American Frontier Weapons, Clothing & Accessories

The American Frontier is the Westward expansion that started with the English colonies in the early 17th century and ended with the last mainland territories as states in 1912. "Frontier" covers multiple frontiers but the folklore is focused primarily on the 19th century west of the Mississippi River. It covers a lot for us as well, like American frontier weapons, American frontier clothing, and rugged frontier accessories.  Popular attention in the media and entertainment industry is focused on the Western US in the second half of the 19th century, a period sometimes called the Old West, or the Wild West.  Not quite as wild at times as portrayed- farming, mining, lumber and other industries were prominent, but along with everyone else we are guilty of frequently exaggerating the romance and violence of the period.

We see an interesting mix of the Alamo, Zorro, the Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy, Gary Cooper, Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Texas Rangers, Jim Bowie, cattle rustlers, gamblers, gun fighters and outlaws.  The Hatfields and McCoys, Billy the Kidd, the James Gang all seem romantic now.  The frontier transformed Americans and inspired our offerings.  We carry tomahawks, Bowie knives, swords, frontier clothing, holsters, non-firing gun replicas, law enforcement badges, wanted posters, prison gear, accessories, spittoons, bar ware, frontier décor, statues, powder horns and so much more.  The westward frontier defined America and gave us our rugged individualism and self determined drive we have today.

As the American frontier faded into history, the myths of the West in fiction and film have taken firm hold in the imagination of Americans and foreigners alike.  Whether you side with the romance of it all or the wild ride often portrayed in books, TV and film, we’ve got something interesting that captures the spirit of the American Frontier.   Made from authentic materials, often replicated from originals of the era we have brought the frontier back.

Review of: 1800s Pair of Brass Dice

Everybody needs a pair of brass dice.  They can also double as a weapon should the game get out of hand.  Nice paperweights, too.

Good fit and finish. It's lighter than it  appears and well balanced. I put a razor's edge on it, now it is scary.

Review of: Arkansas Toothpick Knife

For the cost, this is a very nice knife and closely matches the description of Louis L'Amour's description of the Arkansas Toothpick, as he puts it, the Tinker Made knife.

Review of: Arkansas Toothpick Knife

This knife is very close to the Legendary " Tinker Made " knifes. I have two from my family hand me downs. I blacked the blade, and went hunting Overseas. I think this knife will do nicely in the field.
