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: Western Boot Knife

At the time I purchased this knife it was being sold for $39.95. I paid the additional $15 for sharpening, which gives you a basic sharp edge to work with - - a crock stick will make it hair-popping sharp with just a few strokes. The wood for the handle isn't identified, but looks like cocobolo. The carbon steel blade is close to a mirror finish, and is coated with a protective finish that prevents rusting, but which can be removed with a bit of elbow grease.

The sheath is wood with black leather glued onto it and stitched, with nickel silver throat and tip. There is no belt loop or frog for attaching it to belt or boot.

The knife looks like the one that Ian McShane carried as Al Swearengen in the HBO series *Deadwood.* Al carried such a knife in his boot. It would make a good knife for a Western reenactor.

Review of: Pinkerton Detective Agency Badge

I did work for Pinkerton at one time.  Of course, they are not like the old West Pinkertons, these days, but I thought that this would look neat with the Pinkerton pieces that I have collected.  Made from pewter in India, this badge polished up very nicely with a hand polishing cloth.  Looks nice with other badges.

Review of: Spittoon

Spittoon is of very good quality and is actually larger than anticipated.  I am quite happy with this item.  It sits now in my living room as an adjunct to my decore.

Review of: Arkansas Toothpick

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: Damascus Cowboy Knife

Quite possibly the nicest knife ACC has ever offered. I've bought three now. One for me, two as gifts. All are beautiful true Damascus, not layered or laminated. Takes a good edge. Nice sheath. It's a good working knife. Also goes great with my fur trade period gear. I've had lots of compliments. Even if you buy this for a collection, just to look at, I can't imagine being disappointed with this knife.

Review of: Damascus Cowboy Knife

I am greatly pleased with knife. The bone scales really set the look of the Damascus blade.
On draw back is the Made in Pakistan no the blade. I would let love to remove that.
Overall, I would recommend this knife to anyone.
