Here is one I just finished for a customer a few hours ago.

The sword is an older model Del Tin Late Period Crusader sword. I gave the poplar core a cover of smooth grain leather, dyed a dark antique tan. The suspension is pretty straighforward, being a heavy duty laced frog crafted from 9-11oz tooling leather which holds the sword at a cant on the left hip. The belt and frog are dyed black to match the grip, and were given a high gloss sheen. The Latin Cross and shield were embossed at the throat to match the same theme on the pommel of the sword. The mild steel chape was given a utilitarian finish and left darkened to match the finish on the sword's fittings.

This package is a simple, yet functional approach for a pragmatic swordsman who would embrace the sword as more of a tool of the trade than something to hang over the mantle.

Very well done. Like the color combination and also the cross on the scabbard.

That's nice, how the shield on the scabbard reflects the one on the pommel.

I always liked that sword, DT5144, type XV from around 1400. It's one of my favorite Det Tins, one of the first swords I ever bought.
