Latest 1st Century Fulham Gladius Sword and Scabbard for my client in Germany. Historically Accurate.
This blade is made of 1075 High Carbon Steel
It weighs 1lbs. 8 oz. and comes alive in your hand with a P.O.B. 3.5" from the guard.
The Guard, Pommel, and Grip are hand carved from European Boxwood (Bauxwood)
The guard has an inset guard plate that has been "Personalized" to the New Owner. The Pommel Finial and Washer are mad of brass.
The scabbard is Historically Accurate, yet the main Terminal Plate and Chape Plate are adapted from a Mainz Scabbard. The artwork from Christian Mik's Book was redrawn and resized to fit the Fulham Scabbard.
It was not until late last night on my Birthday that I found an actual photograph of that portion of the scabbard. I believe we accomplished a good replica without having the photograph to start.
The Top Locket plate was a Roman Eagle found in Roman Sculpture.
Everything is hand made here in my shop and commissioned by my clients to meet their desires and vision for their swords and scabbards.
This client portrays a Centurion in the Reenactment Group he is a part of.
These two pieces were a labor of love and propelled me into retooling my shop in order to make Scabbards. Working with this client was a great joy as we challenged each other throughout the process to come up with this finished work.

Hey Patrick, welcome to myArmoury!

Really like your stuff, and have admired it on FB. Love the color of the scabbard, the plate, and the hollow ground blade. Have you ever done a blade with a reinforced piercing tip? Great work, thanks for posting it here.
