I was going to wait to post this until I had it in hand, but I'm too excited to wait. I sent off my Regent to longtime friend and myArmoury colleague Bill Grandy (historicalhandcrafts.com) for a scabbard and grip re-cover. I ordered the grip in blue from Albion way back when. It arrived darker than I expected and had darkened more over the years to the point where people who didn't know just thought it was black. I experimented with lightening the leather color myself. It ended badly. I now know what "Campaign worn blue" might look like if Albion offered it...

So, off it went to Bill for a proper scabbard and a new grip cover. The belt rig and chape are from Tod Cutler; installed by Bill. Bill made and did simple tooling on the wood core scabbard. He could have done more extensive tooling and it would have been great, but we kept it simple at my wallet's request. The belt is brown and the scabbard is blue. As in bluuuuueeeee. Happy

The grip was rewrapped in tooled blue (as in bluuuuueeee) leather with scrolling vines. Albion's laminated stabilized wood grip was left in place as were the risers.

I'll do a full review with my own pics (these are Bill's) for the forum when I get it. Based on the pics, though, I'm very happy. Bill is great to work with.

Beautiful
That's actually a historical leather dye color, too.

Yeah. I thought it was black. This looks pretty darn spectacular!

UPS says it should arrive tomorrow. I hope you like it in person! Happy

I originally told Chad that I was nervous to cut off an Albion wrap, as their grip wraps are phenomenal. Iím glad he talked me out of that attitude, because Iím pretty happy with how it turned out!
