Hello myArmoury community,

I don't get around to posting nearly as often as I would like, as I've got this side gig making scabbard's that is keeping me busy Cool

Anyway, I'd like to share this one, as it turned out to be a neat piece.

This scabbard features a double-belt suspension, a hand rubbed antique coloring process, and physical aging of the leather.

Nice work, as usual. I was wondering what had happened to you and almost PMed you a couple times; glad to see you're still in business. Happy

Thank's everyone. It was a pleasure making this one.

The business has been booming, so much so that I've had less time to post, and perhaps a bit of laying low to slow the flow.

Booming business is good news and I'm glad for you and it's a good sign for the sword business as well I guess: Not much demand for swordless scabbards although your work is so nice it would be almost tempting to get a scabbard of yours for a sword one doesn't have. Wink Laughing Out Loud

Doooohhhh, this one doesn't do it for me, BK. Your skill continues
to impress. I'd never quibble about that, but I can't see the sword for
the scabbard, if you follow ...

It was truly commissioned for a pittance. His work is really under valued and should be 3x as much for the skill and customer service he provides is A+. That's my tritonia and scabbard, I gave brian a loose set of parameters to follow and gave him artistic license and I'm VERY happy on how it turned out. I will most certainly come back for repeat business down the road. He is truly an artist and a gentleman I can't stress how much of a good guy he is.

Thank's everyone, and especially Jonathon. It's always a pleasure when someone allow's me artistic liberty, and an even greater reward when the customer loves it.

On a side note, the Tritonia is really a nicely balanced sword with a fantastic static POB when held motionless. If anyone is pondering a Tritonia, it's one of those sword's that impresses in person. A truly powerful sword.

Initially I wasn't all that interested in the Tritonia based on the pictures, but after receiving Jonathon's I've since become quite fond of it.
