Hello myArmoury community,

I'd like to share with you a custom scabbard I recently finished. This one features an under leather slide, which was a first for me.

Please feel free to comment, and thanks for looking!

Very nice job on the covered slide. This isn't shown on many new scabbards, but was probably more common than the exposed type. Tim is lucky (Again!)

Very nice! Hopefully the under the leather slides become more common in modern recreations, since that is what the evidence supports historically.

I have something similar in mind for our future project....

That Celtic knot work on either side of that covered slide ain't to shabby neither! I first thought they were pins! Outstanding.

A couple new looks here.

I think Brian did a great job on this scabbard and I can't wait to get it in my hands! I'm very excited to see his take on the internal bridge.

Well, I envy you having this nice sword with an equally amazing scabbard. Big Grin Cool

That will be yours, Tim? Owning a sword and scabbard like that should make any man happy.

What can one say that has not already been said about Michael/Brian's work and Tim's collection? Another exquisite combination.

The question for Tim is, where do I go from here? How can I top this?
