Hi All,

I have just finished a group of scabbards for a single Albion mad customer. From top to bottom these are for the Burgundian, Mercenary, Landgraf and Munich.

Of all these, my absolute favourite is the Munich. I have lusted after this sword for quite a while. I love the very simple lines, the evil elegance and the very strong diamond section blade all combined in a package that is all business. When I was given the opportunity to make a scabbard for one, I tried to reflect these qualities and make as elegant and busniess like a scabbard as I could. I put particular emphasis on the diamond section of the blade and kept these lines very crisp in the fittings and the leatherwork.

I hope you like the results and if you have any questions please ask away.

Tod

Very, very fine work. I'm particularly fond of your metalwork and the way it compliments the sword so well.

Mad?! MAD YOU SAY?!! Eek!

Yeah, ok, maybe I have a couple of Albions... And there may be one or two friends that might suggest I'm certifiable.. Wink

I expect that I'll be very, very happy based on the pictures Tod sent. My Munich is the "Gothic", so I believe it will pop even more with the wire-wrapped grip and risers. The color schemes for the other three are playing at contrasts, with the suspensions matching to the grips (black for Landgraf, oxblood for Mercenary & Burgundian). I am also quite happy with the metal work - each chape unique amongst the four, no "bright" metal, reflecting my preference for the deeper character of the satin finish for the steel elements & mild oxidiation for the bronze fittings. All-in-all, these reflect my aesthetic quite well, and I can hardly wait to get my hands on them!

I will take & post back some pics once I've received the scabbards, showing off my now well-dressed swords. Happy

Ha! Such great work... Incredible scabbards to go with wonderful swords. I like the letter tooling on the Landgraf belt leather - an interesting change.
