Here's an Albion Dane I just got finished up this evening.

The poplar core was carved out and finished with a riser pattern that mirrors the complex geometry of the Dane itself. It was wrapped in 2-3oz top grain leather, and dyed a deep antique oxblood which I mix up myself. I then gave the risers a lighly worn finish, which allows some of the natural leather color to show through, and this color just so happens to match color of the grip of the sword perfectly. I then bound some decorative winds of silver wire around the scabbard and fixed them with a nickel tack in order to match the grip - adding just a little bit of accent.

We did not do a suspension on this one for the obvious reason, this beautiful sword is huge. You'd have to be 8ft tall to draw it... Laughing Out Loud

A pretty simple affair with just enough detail to put the package together nicely.

Beautiful work!

When I can afford to get a Dane, I'll be coming to you for the scabbard.

Agreed the wire wrap really unifies the sword and scabbard as being made for each other.

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