The scabbard itself looks great, but I am a little indifferent to the use of the Latin Cross. Though the symbol itself is ancient in usage, I am not use to seeing it on weaponry/weapon related items from the 15th C. I would have personally went with something like a Bozeat or Jerusalem cross or a Germanic tatzenkreuz; which I can relate to more - but that is just my personal taste.

It looks really good though! I am sure the customer will be excited to add this custom work to their collection! Happy

Thanks for the complimentary words, as always I appreciate it.

The Christian cross was a personal request from the client, and perhaps he will chime in to explain the usage. As for us scabbard maker's, we often are inclined to honor those request's Wink

While there is a lack of evidence of usage of said cross on 15th century swords and or scabbards, it is not to be considered as evidence of non-existance. Cool

That's a damn big piece of leather. Used the whole length of the hide for that one? Happy I have a Dane sitting here now that would be nice to have a simple scabbard for. Hm.

It sure was. I barely had enough to cover it from tip to throat. I couldn't be very picky in leather selection either. Sewing up the back seemed like it took forever, too. Big Grin

Well maybe it's getting predictable and repetitive but: Great work ....... as usual.

The first thing that pops into my mind seeing that is "how is it possible to draw a sword that big from a suspension like that?"

It looks like it's designed to hang from a sword belt, am I interpreting what I'm seeing correctly?

Yes, it is a 2.5 point suspension that hang's from a belt. It is possible to draw, but rank's pretty high on the difficulty scale. I suggest some long arms Big Grin
