Here is a quick rewrap I've completed yesterday for my tinker norman. I'll start with the scabbard asap.

I chose to dye the grip in a slightly uneven manner ("campaign worn"), and I rather like the way it came out (basically it's several pass with heavily diluted dark brown dye).

I have to say that this sword is the best candidate for upgrades I had owned so far...the perfect sword kit indeed!

Cheers,

Julien

Nice job!

I have to say though that you're killing me with the death of a thousand posts! I'd really like to buy the Hanwei/Tinker Viking sword and use it as a platform for some modifications but I have several projects lined up ahead of it and I'm trying to discipline myself for once. Your progress reports and evaluation of the Norman haven't made that any easier! Laughing Out Loud
