Hello myArmoury,

I'd like to share a recently completed scabbard for the Albion Earl / Regent. This is a non-commissioned scabbard that I made in between commissions, and I'm considering putting it up for sale, but for now it's in my personal collection. The scabbard has a russet tan base with multi-colored details, and a semi-finished 2.5-point suspension harness in ox blood. It features a wool lined poplar (lacquered) wood core. The wood core was sanded in a unique style to compliment the shape of the blade.

Commentary & questions are welcome!

That is just mouth wateringly good... The chape is so well done. Definitely a high water mark in scabbards! Damn fine job Brian.

Thank you Patrick and Tim. I was really unsure about this one at first because it's different enough from what I normally do I worried the end result wouldn't look good enough, but I stuck with it and followed through to the end. As such, I'm glad I did.

That high contrast color work is really something else, great way to make that detailed leatherwork stand out at a distance.

I love the artistic expression here... and as mentioned above, that chape is divine.

Thank you Dan and Nathan. It was a fun scabbard to make and as an artist it's good to do projects periodically that take you a little out of your comfort zone.

Another fantastically executed design from you Brian, so exactingly detailed the mind boggles.

Well done.
