Things have been really busy here at the Shoppe, and I have not been able to post as frequently in the forums as I would like to. I've probably turned out 90-100 scabbards in the last 3 months, so I can't post them all; but you can follow my production queue on Facebook -

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Crusader-Monk/223267897791618?ref=hl

Here are some of the highlights coming though the shoppe this spring for your viewing pleasure!

1. Ollin King Jack - Dark antique brown leather over natural hemp risers with a single point tied suspension.



2. Albion Discerner - Dark tan leather over latigo risers with a tied angled frog.



3. Armor Class Basket Hilt - Black leather cover with dark tan intergrated two point suspension.



4. Albion Burgundian - Dark red leather cover with a black tied two point suspension.



5. Albion Crecy - Black leather cover over decorative cross risers accented with silver pins with a oxblood baldric.



6. Albion Maximillian - Dark antique green basic scabbard with decorative natural hemp risers.



7. Odinblade Dagger - Black leather cover over oversized latigo risers with an oxblood frog (laced up the back).



8. Albion Augustus - Dark antique brown leather cover with dark antique brown/brass suspension loops and baldric.



9. Gen 2 Irish Hand and a Half - Complete rebuild of handle from scratch along with permanant peening of the furniture (sword was initially threaded construction). Grip and scabbard covered in dark antique brown leather.



10. Albion Constable - Dark antique green cover over vine, thorn, and leaf shaped risers. Suspension is a tied two point, oxblood in color.



As always, Crusader Monk has no waiting queue and only a 7-10 business day wait on completion of all new commissions. We also offer a rush service for your needs if requested. Ask our customers, no one in the industry can get your sword back to you faster with a solid quality scabbard and suspension. Big Grin

Very nice stuff. I'm glad that you're so busy. It looks like you are one of the few actually making a living doing something sword related.

I hope to give you some business sometime this year.

Thanks, brother - I am looking forward to it. Just send them along when they are ready, and I will get them suited up for you. Happy

Thanks for the compliments, everyone. It's a real pleasure to be able to work with the community for their scabbard/customization needs. Big Grin

Lot of great work there... but I'm really impressed by the total overhaul you gave the Gen 2 Irish Bastard. That is a sword I've owned twice... because I like the over all look of it and the blade is pretty nice. The sword is less overbuilt then a lot of Gen 2's offerings...

...but the grip is such aweful crap. So bad.

You didn't just rebuild the grip it looks like... but you took out that circle of steel at the hilt as well... make me wish I still had mine to send to you, you really turned it into a beautiful sword.

Thanks man. That sword was indeed a different beast when it arrived here. The stock grip is just weird to me, it's completely round and waisted in reverse. I actually removed two of those rings, they just slid off once it was disassembled and gave me enough tang to work with to execute a peen. It was a bit of an experiment, but it did render a much nicer sword in the end. The customer is happy with the new version, which was my goal to begin with. Happy
