Hi All,

I have just finished my first scabbard for a Sovereign. The customer wanted and integral suspension which was right at the end of its style for the dates on the Sovereign and also wanted a rainflap with a brass edging so I rivetted it in place with some floral studs with (what I think) nice effect.

I hope you like it.

I also have near finished scabbards just requiring colour specifications and belt sizes for, Chevalier, Templar, Dane, Sovereign, Hospitaler, Arn, Alletus and Agincourt. These can be prepared for shipping within a month or so.

Regards

Tod

That's lovely. I have a sovereign in need of a scabbard.
Is that wool lined wood core?
If you don't mind me asking, what sort of price? (I know, if I have to ask = I can't afford it).

Oh man, now you make up a sovereign scabbard after I bought one of the basic Albion ones Happy. How much would the sovereign scabbard cost if it was finished in chocolate brown with a 2 locket suspension system?

Do you have anything for an Albion Squire/Prince coming up?

Great work Tod :-)

Thank you for doing this.
It is a great service to customers and a boon to me as the designer, knowing there are good scabbards like these available for the swords.

Thank you all, your comments are appreciated.

The prices for all my scabbards are available on the 'Albion scabbards' page of my website, but a simple rig like this is 370 (about $600), the edging added a little to the cost.

Thanks

Tod

Hey Tod,

That's beautiful! The addition of brass works very well. As usual with your pieces, there is a very convincing period look to it.
I've observed that the current trend in scabbard making seems to go towards very (over) elaborate designs, and I personnaly welcome scabbards going back the original, more epurate form, that is equally beautifull in my opinion.

We have to remember that (in most cases) these were utilitarian objects, designed to carry and protect the sword. They were probably carried until they were too damaged to be of service then simply thrown away and replaced often for sure. Leather, wood and man labour were inexpensive and readily available at the time...

I've never been drawned to blue dye before, but I think you just sold it to me (I thought about it many times, as it is the regalian color along with white for a french sword, along with fleur the lys...I'd put it aside after failing at dying a grip twice. because it surfaced "bronze" combined with the leather I used at the time, but never entirely gave up the idea). Anyway, it complements the brass color beautifully.

J
