The "hawk" theme is beautifully executed. There is a nice harmony among the sword guard and pommel (as "wings" and "tail") and the scabbard representing the "flock". Well done!

It really looks like it belongs perfectly with the sword.

What sort of leather did you use to cover it?

Now that's a masterwork ! It's perfectly done and, in addition, with a great aesthetic sense. Congratulations !

David

P.S. I really love the sword too.

I used couch leather 2mm. There are 2 types of couch leather, one that is very flexible, which i use, and the other is a bit stiff. The first one behaves more like a piece of textile/cloth. This type of leather mostly has a surface pattern. If you don`t want that you should use natural leather 1mm, then u can dye it in the color you like.
