Wood cored, wool lined, veg tan, natural dyes blah blah blah....

Finished them yesterday a.m., sat outside in the blazing sunshine under the wisteria as the bees buzzed in the background, thinking to myself "I could do this for a living....if I could learn to live on fresh air and didn't mind living in a ditch".

They're not mine ( I don't do anything later than 8th century really, except for the occasional bit of standing at the top of Senlac, waiting for the Normans to catch their breath), they belong to a friend of mine who does Norman and Angevin stuff.

Not sure who made them. I'll ask him.

Beautiful scabbards, are those blades one sharp and one rebated?

Yup. One very sharp and one re-enactment combat blunt.
