Best Made Ditty Bag
Made from ultra durable waxed canvas, solid brass grommets, secured by a rope lanyard that has been hand spliced and whipped with a red technical control line, and finished with a stylish solid bronze snap hook. What more do you need in a bag? Really...if you think your stuff is too good to go in a bag like this then it's time to take a long hard inventory of the complexity of your life, and find the precise moment it all went wrong. Interesting fact: the Ditty bag would have been the first test of an apprentice sailmaker or seaman. Before he could be trusted with the fabrication of a sail, he would have to prove his skill by making his own ditty bag out of sailcloth. You can see and learn more here.
