An apostle is a small wooden bottle used by musketeers to carry pre-measured loads of black powder (historical gunpowder) for their muskets.


  • Length approx. 11,3cm
  • Width approx. 2,7cm
  • the given price covers one piece

Musketeer used a matchlock weapon that were muzzle loaded. To load the weapon, the shooter would unplug a wooden container called an apostle (because there were 12 of them) from his leather bandoleer. He would then pour a pre-measured amount of loose black powder from the apostle into the muzzle of the barrel. Then a lead ball was placed into the muzzle and rammed home into the chamber with a wooden rod (a.k.a. ramrod).
