This is a new scabbard I made for my two Brescia Spadonas. Both fit, the heavy one is tight, the normal one is loose. It's hard to take photos of a black leather scabbard without proper lighting and not make it look like dookie, but the pics didn't turn out too bad.

The suspension is borrowed from another scabbard until the buckles that I want are back in stock. It's actually pretty easy to resize one of these suspensions from one scabbard to another.

Thanks.

I can't make chapes, so I reground a chape from a cheap sword.

The future suspension will be the same color. I'd make it exactly the same if I could find the right buckles and fittings. Maybe this suspension will stay and the old scabbard will get the new one.

Thanks Brian.

It's not quite as nice as the ones you make. Happy

Nice work. What did you use to make the core?

Thanks for sharing.

I usually hand carve balsa wood cores, but this is an Albion campign line scabbard that has been radically reshaped. Yes, there really is that much extra useless wood on them. Happy

Here are some better pics.

The "white" patches are not white, just shiny. Damn, photography is hard.

I can't argue with that, looking good Michael! Great effort!

Black isn't an easy color to work with. Much like a black sport's car, every mark or smudge in the leather shows up.

I'm glad to hear your core problem worked out ok, too.

Nice: I like the ridge running down the center of the scabbard. Cool

So is that a corner of your wooden keep that we see in the pics. Razz Laughing Out Loud Seriously the little we see of it, it looks like a nice and solid log cabin ....... one is tempted to walk down and take a nap in the folding chairs seen in the background after eating some BBQ-ed roast beef or ribs. Wink Or some nice home smoked salmon. Razz ( O.K. lost it again ..... must be hungry or at least I'm making myself hungry. Somehow I get the feeling this may be a tiny bit OFF-TOPIC. Razz Eek! Laughing Out Loud ).

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Thanks Brian. Yeah, the problem worked out.

Jean, yes, that's my fortress of solitude. Happy It's not that far from you, come on down and sit in the chair. I may even give you some bbq.
