Hello myArmoury community!

It's always a pleasure displaying my craft to the fine people here at myArmoury. So without further delay, I present to you my most recent commission. It's fall, and I felt inspired to do a little something different with my pictures.

This is a sword-less scabbard offering for a customer located in the Netherlands!

Doing such great work should be illegal as it become much too tempting to empty one's bank account ordering the sword from Albion and getting a scabbard made by you. Wink Laughing Out Loud Cool

Joke, because I long ago ran out of complements or superlative praising your work. Wink Cool

Brian, your work is always so exciting and yet so boring at the same time. I mean it is always exciting to see what new designs you come up with, I really like the double belt on this one; and then it about three seconds later one realizes that it is just more of your flawless execution, superb design and balance, coupled with perfect choice of materials! Laughing Out Loud
If this what boring is then by all means continue!
Maybe some day I will have to come and see some of your work. Aren't you in SLC still I am in Cache Valley.

Beautiful work, as always. The southpaw who gets this is getting some top-notch craftsmanship.

I will say that I hope people start giving you commissions for different/other suspension systems. This kind of integral knot is kind of over-done and is perhaps an earlier style than this blade would demand. It's attractive and functional, for sure, but there are other suspensions that I'd love to see you do. Happy

Happy

I have to come out of the woodwork to comment that you are a master at leathercraft. This scabbard is stunning.
