Our reproduction Nuckolls canteens are proudly hand crafted in Georgia by a veteran Civil War living historian. They are hand lathed based off of measurements of period existing pieces and their diameters range from 7 to 7 1/2 inches. They are lined with beeswax and are assembled using period correct square cut nails, as per original pieces. All canteens are given a period "French Polish" using a period mixture that consists of beeswax and a small amount of turpentine. This polish is period correct and not incorrect as others being made with lacquer finish. Water capacity of the canteen is approximately 30 ounces.
Our canteens also feature and come with a Hughes, Pendergrass, and Snow webbing sling.
