Hello myArmoury community,

I'd like to share a custom scabbard I just completed. This one was very unique in that the blade shares the same width all the way down the blade until a couple inches near the tip. With so much landscape to play with, I was a bit overwhelmed with design ideas in the beginning! I like where this one ended up and it turned out an instant beauty.

Please feel free to comment and ask any questions you may have, and thank you for looking!

Wow Brian. It looks even better in these glamour shots then the ones you sent me. You have outdone yourself on this one.

To anyone who is looking to have a scabbard and belt made I cannot recommend Brian enough. He is an all around great person to work with. I gave him free reign on the whole design as well as colors and I think that it turned out perfectly.

I really like the two-tone color of the belt. Very striking.

While I would like to take credit for the pictures of the sword I cannot. Michael took them and I still have them on my computer. Looks good Mike!

Well I am home and have finally been able to see Brian's handiwork in person. The scabbard and sword have been here for a week but I have not. Sad Lucky me gets back home for Labor Day weekend.

The whole rig looks better in person then in the photos if that can be believed. I let Brian have free reign with the design and colors and it matches the sword perfect. This is the second scabbard and belt that Brian has made for me and it is even better then the first. I highly recommend Brian. His customer service and willingness to work with you are simply second to none. I am very proud to own both the great sword, the center piece of my small collection, that Michael Pikula that Brian has now made a rig worth of the blade truly making the package my cherished!

Thank you very much Brian.

That is really scary and extremely impressive, glad such a nice sword has a scabbard up to the same high standards, and congratulations Scott. Big Grin Cool

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!
