I have just finished the scabbard i was working on for Bertus.

The brass fittings, buckles, studs and strap end are all hand made by me.

Also the scallops are made by me from a single piece of brass.

It was a load of work but very satisfying in the end.

Ben

Beautiful! Are the suspension rings brazed or soldered?

I'm very happy with it Ben! A truly great new home for my c. 1370 Vickers arming sword.

If anyone is interested in the sources that were used or how it looks on me Cool , you can have a look at my blogpost:
