Very nice work as we have come to expect and I really like the contrast of detailed areas with large surfaces left plain and untooled avoiding the visual clutter of having detailing on every possible surface. ( This can also work at times for some designs but it's good to be able to control the impulse to make the work uniform in level of detail ).

As always, nicely executed. I do think that this style of scabbard suspension predates the Kingmaker, though. But it's beautifully put together. Happy

Thank you Chad. The background on the scabbard is that it comes from a rather hidden, and behind the times of fashionable suspensions, part of Europe Cool

If I recall correctly Brian suggested a two point suspension but I really like the look of the double belt suspensions he's done so I requested that. It turned out great, just the right balance of simplicity and detail, and the color and the weathering are very neat. It has the carefully worn, familiar look of a daily use item.

That is really impressive. Thanks for sharing.

I really dig the chape on this one, its fairly large. Are you making these yourself Brian?

Thank you.

Yes, all but a few I've collected are handmade in my shop. This one in particular was handmade in my shop.
