Hello myArmoury community!

I just finished up this weekend an Albion Reeve sword-less scabbard commission and I would like to share it with everyone. The scabbard is colored in a brown and black combination and suited up for a left-handed swordsman.

This was an extensive tooling project and took a lot of hours tooling in the design. I think it turned out really well.

Please feel free to comment and chime in with any questions as well!

Thanks for looking!

What is the significance of the ring near the throat. Is this a feature seen on sword scabbards of the 11th. c.?

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

The ring is something I've used before on a couple previous scabbards, and was requested by the client to be used here. Though I have no evidence or historical documentation, nor do I claim it to be historically factual, I simply have used it to represent what I think clansman like decorative attributes to a scabbard could be, in a plausible fashion.
