Hello myArmoury Community!

I would like to share with you my latest commission, the Albion Knight. This was my first "sword-less" commission, where the customer lives in Norway, the ideal ordering process involved less shipping, less risk. Using my own Albion Knight as a model to shape the scabbard around, I built the design details according to another Knight scabbard I made previously, as that was his inspiration for ordering with me. With some subtle changes, and slight coloring differences it came out extremely well.

Please feel free to chime in and comment, and thanks for looking! More images can be found on my website.

Glorious scabbard! Your work seems to *somehow* continue to improve! Whoever will get this scabbard is one lucky fella!

Simple and elegant work. It's also a credit that you've followed up on your idea; and
equally so that -- although fellow members can't examine every little detail without
actually having one of your scabbards -- you appear to hold your self to high standards
and consistancy.

I can't wait to hear from the owner how the fit is. As you know, I was interested in ordering a scabbard for my knight using this method. Looks awesome as usual Brian, August seems so far off Happy.

Did you incorporate any spring like quality into the mouth to make it fit forgiving, or is it made assuming the owners sword will be similar to one you had? Good luck on this venture, and I applaud your persistence in pursuing it.

The wool lining should provide some forgiveness in fit. But that is why I state I will make them loose, unless otherwise specified at the owner's risk.

Brian, as the proud owner of one of your fantastic works of art (the other Albion Knight scabbard with the Jerusalem Cross), I am always in awe of what you create! My own sword and scabbard is holding up well and always grabs the attention and praise of friends/guests who often ask not just about the sword, but the scabbard in particular. :-) Great work! Like the previous poster, I am curious to find out about the fit between sword and scabbard. Cheers!
