Ken Scott – Bag Maker, Leather Worker

October 2010 – vol.5, Larry Pletcher, editor

I first met Ken Scott at the Conner Prairie Gun Show in 2001. I bought at journal from him.

Since then I have seen and admired his work at many muzzleloading events. His bags are, in my opinion, the benchmark by which other bags are compared.

Ken’s bags caught my eye at the CLA show this August. His bag “No King by Jesus” is a favorite of mine.

Among Ken’s other products are folk art prints, and Records of Births and Marriages.

This past week I had the opportunity to see Ken teaching his class on bag making at Conner Prairie. His class and the others there will be covered in a photographic article coming up on Blackpowdermag.com. Below are a couple of photos of Ken with his class:Ken ScottKen ScottKen ScottKen Scott
