My two beak nosed ribbon hilts.
Left hand is made by Eljay with a John Lundemo blade. The sword is based on the sword that's at display in the National Museum of Scotland, also seen in the Wallace book. Right hand Donnie Shearer with Del Tin blade. This one has seen some battle in my hand Wink



Cheers,
Henrik

Very nice. I like the rough munition grade look. What regiment do you reenact with?
And who has made these?

Cheers,
Henrik

Tak tak Henrik - I make them myself - I have a few in various stages of making, none finished as yet. I'm not a re-enactor so they'll all be sharp when they go up on my wall! You look like your area of interest is the '45 - lovely weapons, although I like the simpler English stuff of 100 years earlier, (Swedish and Dutch too for that matter, all good simple protestant functionality!).

See you're in S Norway, great place - jeg var fem wintra i Troms og Hardanger - up the jokull med vor fallskirmregiment i 80arene although as you can see I never got the chance to learn Norse properly - think in Saxon and alter the words a bit and we could just about make sense of a newspaper!

Do you reenact as a Jacobite? How about Sinclair hilts - remember seeing a few of those in Oslo once. Would gladly go back to Norway; much nicer than where we get sent these days.

Really!? They look like they will turn out very nicely. There are too few people thinking out of the box and making those types of baskets. Good on ye! Make sure you let me see how they turn out when you're done :-)
I'm in the process of converting a simple conventianal Scottish basket hilt at the moment into something a bit more spanking and adding a rayskin covered handle. A really fun project. Alongside making dirks for my reenactment mates.

Yes, I reenact the '45 rising in the UK. So I go over for a few events every year. Can't find a reason for reenacting the Jacobite stuff here. After all, only David Lord Ogilvie only came to Bergen and got arrested.
It's actually not bad Scandinavian you've written there.

Sorry, but I mistook you for a reenactor because of the first picture. It just looked like used Civil War gear Happy

Cheers,
Henrik

Great looking baskets!

Here is the only Baskethilt I have.

It is a hybrid with a Cold Steel Scottish Basket and a MRL Cutlass Blade.

Hmmmm..... That's the strangest dyed leather I've seen with such a masculin weapon. What had you drunk when you ordered this?
I really like the hilt. Do you use this with your Border Reiver stuff?

David, you should really bring those swords out in the sun for a photoshoot. I feel I'm missing so many lovely details in your beautyful collection...

Kirk, that Sinclair hanger looks interesting and to me it is a basket hilt. Who made it?

Cheers,
Henrik

It's lot redder in real life, and ,yep, it's for doing reiver stuff with, used with a targe it makes a very nice combination.
